The config and code in John's example looks ok.

Dancer2 uses a heuristic to locate app config files if 
$ENV{DANCER_CONFDIR} is not set.
This iterates up the directory structure looking for ./bin and ./lib 
sub-directories or a
.dancer file.

Based on having those routes defined in app.pl, I'm assuming that you 
had no ./bin
and ./lib subdirs in ~/tmp/Dancer2, so the heuristic doesn't find the 
config file there.
Creating a .dancer file (content is not important) in that directory 
will resolve that.
