Hello list, Some time back I remember discussion of a tool (I think it pre-dates engines) that let you quickly/easily deploy multiple instances of a single Rails app onto a single server. If, for example, you had multiple customers that wanted to run the same application, but with e.g. different logos and possibly slightly different rulesets, this tool could make a "clone" of an application and let you override the core views/controllers/models if and where you needed to do so. I've completely forgotten the name of this tool, and searching a few possible keywords in Google hasn't been enlightening. Could someone please tell me what this tool is called, as I've got a possible use for it? Thanks in advance Dave M.

Not positive, but was it "productizing?" http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/RailsProdu...

I think engines plugin can do the same, and I think it is more easy and clean for this case (overriding) and when you want to make a module of a vertical slice of the app. (note that I dont like the other examples of engines as issolated components which want to fit in all applications) Duncan
