Revision 26 - 2009-03-10 at 23:27:04

MojoMojo has been under development for a long time. It started its life as a Maypole app, and has since been ported to Catalyst. The ORM has also been changed from Class::DBI to DBIx::Class, which gave the Nested Set code a fair bit more elegance.

It's still a bit rough in the edges, but it has grown a fairly comprehensive test suite over the years. The controllers and models are fairly easy to follow, and thanks to TT, the templates are pretty clean too.

Source Control

MojoMojo is being maintained in a Git repo, currently residing at:


  1. To use github, follow the first two Github tutorials:
  2. Clone the repository using "Your clone URL" (the Public one is read-only):

  3. To have your username hyperlinked on the web interface, configure your git e-mail address to match the e-mail address you used to sign up for

    git config --global ""

It's possible that if you add other email addresses via the Account or Profile, those will work too. Note that the matching is done by email address, not by username.

Dependencies and testing

Mojomojo requires a number of dependencies, among which:

  • Imager, which requires the following libraries to be installed beforehand:
    • libpng-dev libgif-dev libjpeg-dev. If you installed Imager before these, reinstall it with cpan force install Imager
