I have an application which is split across two servers. Most of the
application runs on one server, but one controller runs on another
server. The second controller has no dependency on the first.
I need to generate links in the HTML that point to the second server.
I’d like to keep the existing helper functions. The documentation
for url_for says I can pass in a :host option to specify a different
However, when I try the following in Edge Rails (version 5509):
<%= url_for(:action => “foo”, :controller => “bar”, :host =>
“hostname”, :protocol => “https”)%>
it only renders
Should url_for work in the way I’m expecting? And if it does, will
options like :host pass through form_for and remote_form_for ?
