Thank you for your post.
Here are some changes to make this app compatible with Mojolicious 8.12 (debian) :

... and create mojo_app.conf (beside mojo_app.yml ) :

I would recommend lib::relative if you don't have access to curfile yet:

use lib::relative '../lib';
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Thanks. I forgot to mention the current code is written in mojo version 9.14.
The YAML config were introduced in 8.57 and curfile in 8.25.
I must say, I liked the JSON more than YAML. But since most of cloud deployment tools are using YAML so they changed it to that. Maybe it will take some time to get accustom to it. :)
