Dancer2 0.301003 Released

On behalf of the Dancer Core Team, I'd like to announce the availability of Dancer2 0.301003. While there are a number of bug fixes and documentation improvements in this release, there are two new features that I'd like to point out:

  • Git support from the CLI: When scaffolding a new Dancer2 app from the command line, you can now initialize a new Git repository and set the remote all at once. Passing the --git option to dancer2 gen will initialize a new repository, and --remote will take a URL for your remote repository (git:// and https:// are both supported).

  • Out-of-the-box Docker support: There are a lot of ways to containerize your Dancer2 application, but sometimes we all need a little help getting started. Using the --docker argument to dancer2 gen creates a Dockerfile for your application based on the latest stable Perl image available. Once your application is generated, there are instructions for how to run your app via plackup or Docker.

You can read the complete changelog here. If you need help, please reach out on IRC ( or our mailing list.

I'd like to thank Oliver Marketing for their contributions towards the development of Dancer2, and our community for the ideas, questions, bug reports, and support of the Core Team and what we do. Thanks for making our little slice of the greater Perl community a nice place to be.

Happy Dancing!
