    Hi Joel,

    I’m just getting my head around Mojolicious and found your posts really helpful. One thing I found in the test for the websocket script was that I had to change line 32 from:

    $row = Mojo::DOM->new($html)->find(‘tr td’)->text;


    @row = Mojo::DOM->new($html)->find(‘tr td’)->map(‘text’)->each;

    Otherwise I got the following error: Can’t locate object method “text” via package “Mojo::Collection”. I’m not quite sure why I was getting the error, surely the method would b…

    Wonderful. I am looking for Mojolicious Application Example to understand it. This is so helpful :)

    For Unicode support there are few fixes needed:


    use Encode;
    plugin Charset => {charset => 'utf-8'};

    modify / method to:

    any '/' => sub {
      my $self = shift;
      my $rows = $self->select;
      # convert utf-8 octets -> unicode
      for my $Item ( @{ $rows } ){
          map { $_ = decode('utf-8',$_) } @{ $Item };
      $self->stash( rows => $rows );

    Best regards
