Yancy - The Best Web Framework Deserves the Best CMS


version 1.088


Yancy is a simple content management system (CMS) for the Mojolicious web framework.

Get started with the Yancy documentation!

This file documents the application base class. You can use this class directly via the yancy command, or you can extend this class to build your own app.

Starting Your Own Yancy Application

If you have an existing Mojolicious application you want to add Yancy to, see Mojolicious::Plugin::Yancy.

The base Yancy class exists to provide a way to rapidly prototype a data-driven web application. Apps that inherit from Yancy get these features out-of-the-box:

If you're familiar with developing Mojolicious applications, you can start from the app skeleton at https://github.com/preaction/Yancy/tree/master/eg/skeleton.

To begin writing a new application from scratch, create a lib directory and add a MyApp.pm file that extends the Yancy class:

package MyApp;
use Mojo::Base 'Yancy', -signatures;

As in any other Mojolicious app, add your routes, plugins, and other setup to the startup method. Don't forget to call Yancy's "startup" method!

sub startup( $self ) {
    # ... Add your routes and other setup here

Next, create a configuration file named my_app.conf to connect to your database:

    backend => 'sqlite:my_app.db',

Last, create a simple application script named script/my_app to start your application:

#!/usr/bin/env perl

use Mojo::Base -strict;
use lib qw(lib);
use Mojolicious::Commands;

# Start command line interface for application

Now you can run ./script/my_app daemon to start your app!

To make developing your app easy and fun, make sure you're familiar with these guides:
