To make my error pages more user-friendly I’m rendering my error
messages (404, 500 etc) using the site’s layout. To do this I’m using
rescue_from as below:
rescue_from Exception, :with => :server_error
ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound, :with => :not_found_error
render :template => ‘common/500’, :status => 500
render :template => ‘common/404’, :status => 404
Obviously not as DRY as it could be but I’m really just experimenting
right now. Also, not completely happy with having to call
activate_authlogic but it’s a necessary evil.
I’d like to be able to totally bypass these handlers when I’m in dev
mode and have the regular stack trace appear. Anyone have ideas about
how I could do this cleanly without having to resort to checking
consider_all_requests_local and local_request??
Also, I realise that some exceptions might occur before this code can
be run. Any ideas on how this code might behave in that situation?
