I see, that's what I was suspecting.

This sounds as the solution for me, though it is not that flexible as the
before hook.
Alternatively I can switch to Dancer 1:)

I use Dancer2::Plugin::Auth::Extensible and switching to another
authentication will make the whole thing more complicated, so for now I'll
try to play with symlinks.

Thank you for your help.
