Single Page Application with Perl Dancer and AngularJS
Recent versions of Dancer2 started to allow custom skeletons which means, we can provide our own skeleton files and the new Dancer-based application will use those.
The Dancer2-Angular-Skeleton is such a set of files.
Download the skeleton using the Download ZIP button in the GitHub Repository. And unzip the file.
$ wget https://github.com/szabgab/Dancer2-Angular-Skeleton/archive/master.zip $ unzip master.zip $ dancer2 -a My::App -s Dancer2-Angular-Skeleton-master
Due to a bug for which I sent in a pull request already it will complain a bit with hundreds of rows like this:
utf8 "\xAC" does not map to Unicode a ...
but in the end it will create a directory called My-App, and in that directory you'll have Dancer2 application, AngularJS, and a few lines of code that demonstrates how to get started with a Single-Page Application.
It still needs more work, but I really wanted to show it already.
You can now
$ cd My-App $ plackup -R lib bin/app.psgi
and visit http://127.0.0.1:5000/ to see how does it work.
Creating your own Dancer2 skeleton
It is quite easy. You can clone the one I have created, or you can copy the share/skel directory from the Dancer2 distribution and tweak it for yourself.
