'bind' default value documentation #691

merged 2 commits into from

2 participants


I'm not sure if there is a way to directly contribute to the documentation, but hopefully this gets where it needs to go.

During my first use of sinatra today I had an issue of getting up and running just as easily as the documentation seems to imply. After a little digging it was because my environment was being default-ed to development. This may be common or expected knowledge in the ruby community, but being less experienced in the language caused a small pitfall.

Thanks for your time, and sorry if I'm way off base on my request!
