Guard::Passenger is the useful development server solution. The guard automatically starts passenger and intelligently restarts the server when needed.
Please be sure to have guard installed before continue.
Install the gem:
gem install guard-passenger
Add it to your Gemfile (inside test group):
Add guard definition to your Guardfile by running this command:
guard init passenger
Please read guard usage doc
Passenger guard can be really be adapted to all kind of rack project with passenger. Please read guard doc for more info about Guardfile DSL.
guard 'passenger' do watch('lib/.*\.rb') watch('config/.*\.rb') end
To use passenger standalone you can pass options to the guard. Guard::Passenger will start passenger on startup and take it down on exit. By default passenger standalone is deactivated and port is set to 3000.
guard 'passenger', :standalone => true, :port => 3001 do watch('lib/.*\.rb') watch('config/.*\.rb') end
Guard::Passenger accepts some options for configuration.
# :standalone boolean run passenger standalone (default: true) # :port integer using the given port (default: 3000) # :env string framework environment (default: development) # :touch string path to check if restart was successful (default: /) (false = off) guard 'passenger', :standalone => false, :port => 3001, :env => 'production', :touch => '/users/all' do end
