Did you try the combinaison NGINX + Plackup ?

Take a look at the Deployment doc (I have contribute to update this section 
:)) : http://susbck.com/g/nNt/GmFmW

It's really easy to deliver static file with nginx, and the speed is awesome

Subject: [Dancer-users] web server configuration under built-in Dancer 

I asked this a few days ago but didn't receive any reply. So, trying 
again --

Here is what I want to do -- set relative paths to directories (aliases, in 
the world of Apache) when using the built in Dancer server, version 1.3011.

Here is why -- One, I am getting a bit sick of Apache. Methinks a lot of my 
performance problems are tied to Apache, perhaps because I don't know how to 
tune the heck out of it. Nevertheless, the major problem is, I get very, 
very poor error messaging with Dancer+Apache combination. An example -- I 
had a mistake in my script last night that I was accessing via Ajax. All I 
got was an error popup on the client telling me that "an internal error had 
occurred." Other than that, nothing in Apache error log, and, funnily I 
was/am also not getting any development.log output.

In sheer frustration, I decided to run the built-in Dancer server, and boom! 
I got a nice message saying "var prcp not definted at line blah blah" and I 
also got messages in the development.log. The problem now? Well, none of my 
aliases, as declared in httpd.conf are available to the built-in server. 
Here is how I work -- 

I store all my common JavaScript libraries in ~/<http root>/lib, and all my 
applications in ~/<http root>/<app dir>. In my vhosts.conf file I define an 
alias for lib as `/lib ~/<http root>/lib` so I can access all my JS 
libraries via `<script type="text/javascript" 
src="/lib/funky/funky.min.js"></script>` and so on. How can I define these 
kind of aliases for the Dancer's built-in server?

Additionally, what am I doing wrong that I always get such poor error
