This is an idea I am playing around with for RailsCamp 08 to help sharing Rails apps over bonjour on a local network. Unlike appjour, this will avoid having to use different ports and having a separate mongrel instance up for each of your apps. This setup is ideal for developers using Passenger in the development environment (like me)
Advertise all local host names setup using ghost (github.com/bjeanes/ghost) over the network with your primary interface IP
Ideally this command will simply be a daemon that runs on all machines (at RailsCamp). The daemon will be responsible for both maintaining and advertising a list of all local domains, and searching for remote domains and adding it to the local list.
`hostjour start` # => "Starting service ..." `hostjour add myapp.local` # => "Adding myapp.local to broadcast list for this IP" `hostjour list` # => would list all running apps and who is running them
sudo gem install dnssd ghost hostjour
