Ruby on rails tweaks

Is there a way to avoid having to type “ruby script/server” in “C:\www
\myrubysite”?

Is there a way to eliminate “:3000” from " http://localhost:3000/ "?

Is there a way to add '“myrubysite” to " http://localhost/ "?

Or install the thin gem and us that as the “development” server that
can start at boot time. Add a thin.yml in your codes config directory
so you can start the server with thin -C config/thin.yml start… You
can set the port number and stuff in the config file.

You mean you want the server to start when windows starts? Just make a
file start_app.bat like this:

c:
cd \www\myrubysite
ruby script\server

and place it in your system startup folder. Or, you can look at some
sort of application as service thing:
http://www.application-as-service.com/ (haven’t tested it).

specify the server to run on port 80: ruby script/server -p 80. Try ruby
script/server --help

As a site prefix? IE http://localhost/myrubysite? Or as a host name? IE
http://myrubysite/

The latter can be done through editing
C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts and adding a line like

127.0.0.1 myrubysite

Then you can reach your app like http://myrubysite

If you were thinking about the context path I’m not sure. Used to be
this was a real hassle, but I haven’t checked in a while, so it might
have been fixed/made easy.
