How to get form parameters and placeholders is covered in Mojolicious::Guides::Tutorial. I see you've commented out Mojo::SQLite, but I personally like these Mojo-style DB adapters.

Form parameters don't normally get put in the URL in the way you seem to be hoping. One possible solution would be JavaScript, but here is a solution without it: the HTML form gets submitted to a handler at /search, which then just redirects to the corresponding URL. Note I'm generating the form via Mojolicious::Plugin::TagHelpers.

#!/usr/bin/env perl use Mojolicious::Lite; use Mojo::SQLite; helper sqlite => sub { state $sql = Mojo::SQLite->new('sqlite:mydb.db') }; # disable template cache when running under morbo app->renderer->cache->max_keys(0) if app->mode eq 'development'; app->sqlite->migrations->from_string(<<'END_MIGR')->migrate; -- 1 up CREATE TABLE contacts ( id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT, name TEXT, department TEXT ); INSERT INTO contacts (name,department) VALUES ('John Doe','Perl'); -- 1 down DROP TABLE IF EXISTS contacts; END_MIGR get '/' => sub { my $c = shift; $c->render('main'); } => 'index'; post '/search' => sub { my $c = shift; $c->redirect_to( $c->url_for('name_query', query => $c->param('name') ) ); } => 'search'; get '/name/:query' => sub { my $c = shift; $c->stash( rows => $c->sqlite->db->select( 'contacts', ['id','name','department'], { name => $c->stash('query') } )->arrays ); $c->render('main'); } => 'name_query'; app->start; __DATA__ @@ main.html.ep <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head><title>Hello Mojo!</title></head> <body> <div> %= form_for search => ( method => 'post' ) => begin %= label_for name => 'Name' %= text_field 'name', required=>'required'; %= submit_button 'Query' %= end </div> % if ( my $rows = stash 'rows' ) { % if (@$rows) { <div><table border="1"> <tr> <th>id</th> <th>name</th> <th>department</th> </tr> % foreach my $row (@$rows) { <tr> % foreach my $text (@$row) { <td><%= $text %></td> % } </tr> % } </table></div> % } else { <div><b>No records found!</b></div> % } % } </body> </html>

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
