I’ve been reading and reading about rails and I’m eager to get started
- but I’ve got a question that no literature seems to address.
Every rails book tells you how easy it is to start a sample rails app
by starting up the server and goign to localhost:3000.
what if I’m working from a client?
As a Dreamweaver user, I’m used ot working on the client - uploading
to the server (Apache on Linux) and then going to a browser to see my
result. However, every rails book I see tells you to go to localhost:
3000. I’m not on the localhost. I’m on the client.
It concerns me because if we have several developers working on one
rails app, they will not be able to work on localhost simultaneously.
So I would think that you would be able to program remotely from a
client - but then, I’m bothered by the fact that not a single book
I’ve come across tells you to go to /ipaddress:3000 - they all say go
I can see myself loading a temporary server on my client and then
using capistrano to deploy it to my server, but this seems very clumsy
for a framework that touts simplicity.
Can anybody help with this?
