Watchtower

Setup

Install the plugin:

script/plugin install git://github.com/joshuaclayton/watchtower.git

Move the assets (requires rsync):

cd vendor && rake watchtower:sync

Set up ApplicationController

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base include Watchtower::ApplicationControllerBase force_public_request_handling! # use this to force local development to rescue actions like a production server
  1. etc…
    end

If you want to secure the data, you might want to set up an initializer:

WatchtowerController.class_eval do before_filter :check_credentials private def check_credentials
  1. call login_required (from your auth system or whatever) unless viewing a specific exception by key
    login_required unless find_by_key?
    end
    end
