Dancer::Plugins - interesting plugins to add to Dancer’s capabilities



version 1.3138


Dancer 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.


Dancer::Plugin::Database 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.
Dancer::Plugin::DBIC Provides easy access to DBIx::Class database virtualization.
Dancer::Plugin::Auth::RBAC Dancer Authentication, Security and Role-Based Access Control Framework.
Dancer::Plugin::Email Provides easy email-sending powered by Email::Send - simply call the email keyword. Email sending settings can be taken from your app’s config.
Dancer::Plugin::SMS Send SMS text messages to mobile phones from your Dancer app, using any service supported by SMS::Send.
Dancer::Plugin::Ajax Provides easy way to add Ajax route handlers.
Dancer::Plugin::REST Makes writing RESTful web services easy.
Dancer::Plugin::SiteMap Automatically provides site maps (as an HTML page, or as an XML sitemap ready for Google) based on the routes your app defines.
Dancer::Plugin::Params::Normalization Provides different ways of normalizing parameter names
Dancer::Plugin::SimpleCRUD Provides easy CRUD (create, read, update, delete) facilities, automatically creating routes to display, add, edit and delete data from a database table.
Dancer::Plugin::WebSocket Supports building apps using Web Sockets for bi-directional, full-duplex communications over a long-lived socket connection.
Dancer::Plugin::Memcached Cache page responses or individual items of data with memcached for performance.
Dancer::Plugin::MobileDevice Quickly determine whether the client is a mobile browser, in order to offer a simplified layout, or otherwise customise features.
Dancer::Plugin::NYTProf Provides dead-simple profiling of your app using Devel::NYTProf - enables profiling for each request individually, serves up a list of profiling runs, and generates & sends the HTML reports produced by nytprofhtml.
Dancer::Plugin::Bcrypt Provides simple effective password hashing and validation using Bcrypt.
Dancer::Plugin::Cache::CHI Provides caching for generated pages and/or arbitrary data. Uses CHI, so is backend-agnostic - caching can be done in memory, to files, using Memcache, in a database, or any other method for which there is a CHI::Driver module.
Dancer::Plugin::Thumbnail Easy thumbnail generation using GD.
Dancer::Plugin::Captcha::SecurityImage Easy CAPTCHA image generation and validation, using GD.
Dancer::Plugin::Facebook Easily work with Facebook’s Graph API from your Perl Dancer app. Uses Facebook::Graph.
Dancer::Plugin::Redis Easy Redis database connections, based upon Dancer::Plugin::Database.
Dancer::Plugin::XML::RSS Easy XML RSS creation and consumption.
