Thank you,  Nikos! Your direction toward
Plack::Middleware::Auth::Basic was good hint.

Maybe this solution has some value to others to, so I share it here.

Because my little app acts like AJAX-feeder for other pages (which are
protected with Auth basic), it is not permitted to reponse
indepentently, but only if it is called from pages behind certain

So all I needed finally, was this little app.psgi:

#!/usr/bin/env perl
use Dancer;
use Plack::Builder;
use Plack::Middleware::Auth::Basic;
use My::App;

my $app = sub {
    my $env     = shift;
    my $request = Dancer::Request->new( env => $env );
    Dancer->dance( $request );

builder {
  enable "Auth::Basic", realm => 'admin', authenticator => sub {
    my ( $username, $password ) = @_;
    return $username ? 1 : 0;

Thank you all!

Kõike hääd,
