Getting started with Dancer is easy - we hope you'll be surprised how simple, fun and flexible building a website in Perl with Dancer can be. Even if you're a newcomer to Perl, you should find the simple things easy, and hard things possible.
For easy and automatic installation of Dancer, we recommend using cpanminus:
curl -L http://cpanmin.us | perl - --sudo Dancer2
Of course, you can use any other CPAN client to do so, or even install it manually.
A Dancer application can be as simple as a one-liner, but you may want to start with a complete structure for more complex applications. To help you do so, dancer is shipped with a helper that can scaffold a new skeleton for you.
$ dancer2 -a MyWeb::App + MyWeb-App + MyWeb-App/config.yml + MyWeb-App/cpanfile + MyWeb-App/Makefile.PL + MyWeb-App/MANIFEST.SKIP + MyWeb-App/bin + MyWeb-App/bin/app.pl + MyWeb-App/bin/app.
