Dancer::Timer - a timer for Dancer
use Dancer::Timer; my $timer = Dancer::Timer->new(); my $time = $timer->tick; print "[$time]: Doing something\n"; # (time passes) $time = $timer->tick print "[$time]: Doing something else\n"; # (time passes) $time = $timer->to_string; print "[$time]: Doing another thing\n";

Dancer uses Dancer::Timer in facilities that want to provide this for you. Any plugin author is more than welcome to use it as well.
