 I always end up doing serialization "myself", instead of relying in
plugins. Because many times there will be some edge cases that using
the plugin will require a huge workaround. While handling the
serialization yourself it's always easier to adapt. And even so I
usually end up with very simple and clean applications like:

sub '/users' => sub {
  to_json MyModel->users;

 If you prefer you can also use the "set serializer" option, to omit
the to_json parts, or if you intend to have more than one serializer
