Dancer2::Plugins - Recommended Dancer2 plugins


version 1.1.0


Dancer2 aims to keep the core as small as possible, but there are a growing number of useful plugins to add helpful features.

This document provides a quick summary of some recommended plugins.

Provides easy way to add Ajax route handlers.
Provides an extremely simple way of requiring that a user be logged in before allowing access to certain routes.
Provides an easy to have info of the browser. keyword within your Dancer application.

Provides easy database access via DBI, reading the DB connection details from your app's config file, and taking care of ensuring the connection is still valid and reconnecting if not (useful in persistent environments). Just calling the "database" keyword gives you a connected and working database handle. It also provides some helpful keywords to make inserting/updating data as simple as it should be.

Provides an easy way to generate RSS or Atom feed.
Dancer2 plugin for Paginator::Lite.

A Dancer2::Plugin::Queue using MongoDBx::Queue.
Makes writing RESTful web services easy.
Plugin to verify pod coverage in our app routes.
