Yancy - Mojolicious CMS - Version 1 released

I'm happy to announce the release of version 1 of Yancy, a simple content management system for Mojolicious websites. Yancy is designed to be added to your website to make it easier to develop a web application and manage the content inside.


Yancy features a responsive web application that uses your database schema to build forms to edit your site's content. Yancy currently understands databases like Postgres, MySQL, and SQLite, and the DBIx::Class ORM.

The CMS also comes with reusable controller classes and data management helper functions to reduce the amount of code you have to write. There's even a very basic password authentication plugin to add user accounts to your site.


For version 2.0, I plan to add ways to define and manage relationships in your site's data. I also plan to add plugins for generating forms using UI libraries like Bootstrap, role-based authorization, and a pluggable authentication system to allow for users from Twitter, Google, LDAP, and other places on the same website.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!


Love it

Do have one question though

how do you Bundle 'Bootstrap' and the other things you need.

I can't figure out how to get them all??

Back in the saddle, eh?

Look what you did to the poor man!

Is MongoDB - Mango usable with Yancy?
And if it is, does a document or example exist of it's implementation?
