A Mac OS X system preference pane which aids in quickly setting up Rails applications with Phusion Passenger.
Drag and drop support
Managing hostnames without cluttering /etc/hosts
Obviously required. Version 1.2 www.fngtps.com/files/2/2008/12/PassengerPane-1.2.tgz
Also a no brainer. You'll need at least version 2.0.1. rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=5873&release_id=23286
PassengerPane needs at least RubyCocoa 0.13.2, which can be acquired in the following ways:
Included on Mac OS X since version 10.5.2
Binary installer or source sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=44114&package_id=36578
Note that if you wish to use a custom Ruby, not the default Apple Ruby, you will have to install RubyCocoa from source as well. See rubycocoa.sourceforge.net/GettingStarted for more info on this topic.
PassengerPane is designed to work with the default Apache 2 installation supplied by Apple on Mac OS X 10.5.
Included with the archive you'll find a file called “passenger_pane_config.rb.ports”, this file should be a drop in replacement to work with Apache 2 as installed by MacPorts. Replace Passenger.prefPane/Contents/Resources/passenger_pane_config.rb with this file or your own custom config.
Before creating a bug report, please check that you are using a RubyCocoa matching your Ruby installation and have met all other requirements mentioned above.
If the problem persist, or you have a feature request or better yet a patch, you can file a ticket at: fingertips.lighthouseapp.com/projects/13022
Bonjour publishing of hosts. This uses the dns-sd command instead of the API for registration.
Rack support. Thanks to Kematzy for the original suggestion/work.
Fixed “issue” people had with the default non-vhost based directory not working anymore. Thanks to “spike” for debugging this.
Made the vhost config file extension configurable as well. Patch by Felipe Mathies.
Backported RubyCocoa + Ruby 1.8.7 fix. Patch by Grant Hollingworth.
Removed the “Allow mod rewrite rules” checkbox, we found it's not worth the UI real estate.
Honor custom environments that a user might have set.
Fixed problem with restarting Apache. After saving an application Apache should now automatically be restarted. Thanks to Ciarán Walsh.
Added support for ServerAlias and add those entries to the hosts db.
Reload the applications from disk when the preference pane is brought back to the front. Any changes made to the vhosts from elsewhere will be reflected in the UI.
Moved all hardcoded paths into a config module. Added a config for Apache 2 as installed by MacPorts. Thanks to Ciarán Walsh.
The host table list was editable. Thanks to Ciarán Walsh.
Fixed bugs in parsing custom user defined data in vhosts.
Create a tmp dir before touching restart.txt if none exists.
Replace underscores with hyphens in hostnames. Thanks to Bryan Liles.
