Hi all,

I read about localtunnel gem . As per my knowledge , local tunnel
 a URL , which can be used globally .
I wish to use localtunnel for my knowledge.

But now my question  is raised .

Q  is we have to start rails server port 3000 on another terminal  ? or
localtunnel server is enough for our development server which we
     have already started on 3000 port ?.
Q  Can any one tell me advantage of localtunnel gem ?

i want to use localtunnel to test facebook like on my localhost.
But i am not able to identify the ways to do that.
the installation guide says, i have to install ruby.
And morever, there is no clear description about how to use localtunnel,
using command prompt.
please guide me.
