    I wouldn't want things like database password to be automatically
    available.  Then a template bug could cause a huge security hole.

    I think if you want to make config data available in templates, it's
    be to do that yourself, explicitly and limit it only to keys you need.

  Be it good or bad, you can access config with 'settings' keyword in templates. I'm not sure what but some of the variables are removed/hidden in error pages. I'm not sure about them in other areas. 

  see 'Template Tokens' in https://metacpan.org/module/Dancer::Template::Abstract

  I checked but it doesn't seem to be that module for Dancer2.
