Mojo::Server::Morbo(3) Tonight at 11...DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!


use Mojo::Server::Morbo;
my $morbo = Mojo::Server::Morbo->new;


Mojo::Server::Morbo is a full featured, self-restart capable non-blocking I/O HTTP and WebSocket server, built around the very well tested and reliable Mojo::Server::Daemon, with IPv6, TLS, SNI, Comet (long polling), keep-alive and multiple event loop support. Note that the server uses signals for process management, so you should avoid modifying signal handlers in your applications.

To start applications with it you can use the morbo script.

  $ morbo ./

For better scalability (epoll, kqueue) and to provide non-blocking name resolution, SOCKS5 as well as TLS support, the optional modules EV (4.0+), Net::DNS::Native (0.15+), IO::Socket::Socks (0.64+) and IO::Socket::SSL (1.94+) will be used automatically if possible. Individual features can also be disabled with the "MOJO_NO_NDN", "MOJO_NO_SOCKS" and "MOJO_NO_TLS" environment variables.

See ``DEPLOYMENT'' in Mojolicious::Guides::Cookbook for more.


The Mojo::Server::Morbo process can be controlled at runtime with the following signals.


Shut down server immediately.


Mojo::Server::Morbo implements the following attributes.


  my $daemon = $morbo->daemon;
  $morbo     = $morbo->daemon(Mojo::Server::Daemon->new);

Mojo::Server::Daemon object this server manages.


  my $watch = $morbo->watch;
  $morbo    = $morbo->watch(['/home/sri/my_app']);

Files and directories to watch for changes, defaults to the application script as well as the "lib" and "templates" directories in the current working directory.


Mojo::Server::Morbo inherits all methods from Mojo::Base and implements the following new ones.


  my $files = $morbo->modified_files;

Check if files from ``watch'' have been modified since the last check and return an array reference with the results.

  # All files that have been modified
  say for @{$morbo->modified_files};



Run server for application and wait for ``SIGNALS''.
