I heard about Pow a while ago which is “a zero-config Rack server for Mac OS X” but never got around to giving it a go. I’ve just installed it and can instantly see that it is going to make developing with Rails (or any Rack app) a whole lot nicer, especially when dealing with apps that use subdomain account keys.
If you’ve not tried it yet, head over to the Pow website and get it installed with:
curl get.pow.cx | sh
Happy new year everyone!
