Using Passenger on OS X
05 December 2008
Despite having been reluctant to ditch my ‘tried and tested’ method of Rails deployment using nginx/mongrel/monit I decided that I couldn’t ignore Phusion Passenger anymore and gave it a spin on my local machine for development work.
The passenger pref pane for OS X made setting up Passenger super easy and I was even able to set it up to respond to some wildcard subdomain apps I work on. Best of all it works with the default OS X Apache install so it makes for very few moving parts in your local development setup.
