Got my webservice up and running in 1 day with no knowledge about Dancer
whatsover.[...] Dancer is excellent for middle size websites or web services.
It doesn't get in your way, and supports a [...] lot of backend for deploying
and running your application.
The transition from developing a prototype to having a production
ready app is very smooth.

Dancer is a breath of fresh air in the convoluted world of Perl web frameworks.
I have a lot vested in CGI::Application, another fine framework, but Dancer has
really caught my fancy for future web apps.

I like how dancer doesn't force you to code in any specific way, it provides
the right amount of syntactic sugar to get your app up and running in double
quick time - but doesn't get in the way when you want to do something else.
It's nice and light, and can be deployed in many environments. Thumbs up from
me!

In the end I went with Dancer and I'm loving it so far - some more docs
on the idiomatic way to deal with user creation, authentication and
roles might be nice but I think I figured it all out pretty quickly.

Of all the light-weight frameworks, Dancer was the nicest to
work with when I went through to evaluate them...

I’m really enjoying using Perl’s Dancer for building lightweight web
applications. It’s heavily inspired by Ruby’s Sinatra framework, but clearly
Perlish.

@PerlDancer is the easiest way to write webapps. One day from idea to

For a simple framework I suggest Dancer. Great thing, it made me stop
hating web development.

...there's finally a web framework that works for me. It's called Dancer, and
as redundant as this might sound; Dancer, is an effortless web framework. [...]
It took me more time studying Dancer's features and specs, than the time it
took for me to write the whole mini-blog app.

of what the Perl community is up to these days.

Perl is [...] thriving and making some very cool new stuff
while steadily negating the argument of being line-noise (Dancer comes to
mind as an excellent project to both read and use).

commercial support IMO

I just spent yesterday with Perl Dancer and was able to get a website
going for my Dad's software consulting company in no time at all!
Thanks for all your efforts on Dancer it is pretty awesome.

[...] the words that come to mind are "quick", "small", "simple" and "clean".
There's a close alignment of the packages and methods with the concepts one
has in mind when doing web development.
Formerly a Perl teacher, I never taught web development to the first-year
students because the learning curve would have been too steep. I think Dancer
has changed the game and beginners *can* learn Perl web development using
Dancer. (We'll find out at the beginner's class I'm giving at YAPC in Riga:)

Perl Dancer is amazing! If you're into web development, definitely give
Dancer a look, you might be surprised how fun and productive web development
can be these days. Dancer is two things packed together: it stays out of
your way if you like that, but also provides you with very powerful
primitives to get the complex web tasks done in just a few lines of code.
Highly recommended to both novices and experts!

We needed to move really fast and provide a highly scalable, extensible, and
maintainable product to our customers to enable them to pool money together.
Using Perl Dancer and CPAN, we were able to prototype our site in a couple
of days. That same “protoype” has evolved to the current version of the
website over just a few weeks.

Check out Perl Dancer as a web framework for example and you'll

The heavy hitters are Catalyst, Mojolicious, and Dancer. Any one of them
can be used to build a large-scale web application just as easily as Django
in Python, or Ruby on Rails.

I believe so much in Dancer that I've given talks about it at local Perl
Monger's groups, have taught a few people how to use it, and have even
built my next generation web services framework at Plain Black on top of
it.

When I picked Dancer I wasn't looking for a tool that did everything for me
out of the box. I was looking for something I could grow into and build the
app the way I wanted to build it. Dancer is easily extensible without
getting in my way or limiting me, and that's a big win.

I loved the simplicity and straight-forwardness of Dancer. It's so
dead-simple and just gets out of your way. At a startup, you just want to
pick tools that let you hit the ground running, and Dancer definitely gave
us that.

The Dancer community has always been responsive to us when we've had
questions, or pull requests, or issues. That's really important in any
software project or piece of technology you use.

Dancer2 seemed to really stand out [...] After a couple of weeks I have the
beginnings of a complex web app which is n+1 scaleable, which has a REST API
module and will also have a messaging and workflow tool with a video render
farm - all done in a single language and framework.
