rake server Start the server rake open Open the default port in a web browser rake launch Open the default port in a web browser and start the server
The default folder used for the static files is
site, the default port is
9292, the log is set to
false and the assets set to
true. This can easily be changed by editing the following at the top of the file:
DIR = "site" PORT = 9292 LOG = false ASSETS = true
Why a Rakefile?
It's small and portable.
