At this stage, many modules still need to be ported to the Dancer2

For the moment, I'd suggest that you'd be fine using DBI directly, until
Dancer2::Plugin::Database comes out.  As I understand it, bigpresh is
currently tied up with other things, but ports of a number of plugins
that he maintains will be coming soon.

If you're willing to put in the legwork, the source for D:P:Database is
readily available (https://github.com/bigpresh/Dancer-Plugin-Database)
-- a port into the Dancer2 package shouldn't be too painful.
