in thread Failed to find share dir for dist 'Dancer2'

Whoa!It is working :)! Thank you very much!

I'm quite surprised nobody has reported this yet: maybe all the devs have already a Dancer2 distro installed in their path :O ?

The only thing I could still notice is that (even in templates) this function keeps returning '0.000000_000' which is probably un-related to the File::ShareDir issue though !?

    I'm pretty sure that's the case ;-)

    The version issue is probably because the $VERSION gets written into the modules only when the dist is built. Some Dist::Zilla plugin writes $Dancer2::VERSION = ... into Dancer.pm. Can't see which plugin from looking at the dist.ini, though.

      Actually I see sub VERSION { shift->SUPER::VERSION(@_) || '0.000000_000' } inside the "main" Dancer2.pm module, but I don't see any inheritance set-up: maybe there's some trickery going on inside the sub import() ? What sub is SUPER::VERSION referring to ??
