[dancer-users] Re: Using Dancer2 as a website framework

Hi Alfie,

We're essentially going this route by choosing option 2 so that we can use the right tool for the job (Perl in one case, Python in another) and hosting them together.

Thanks for the thoughts, good to have some agreement.

Why not both? I would suggest something like nginx as a frontend which  
passes the request up to your Dancer API, Python CGI, Ruby CGI, static  
HTML files (generated from Perl, Python etc) etc. That way, it doesn't  
matter what you write your front/backend in. It's configurable all the  
way down.
