Trying out POW

So this morning I realized how annoying it is that I need to run 3 different rails apps for work (probably will be more in the future) and have about 3 freelance projects going at any given time. I hate having to start each rails server constantly. I’ve actually written a bunch of bash code in order to make this process easier. Sick of it.

Enter POW!

Suddenly I have my apps running all the time (technically POW starts and stops them as needed so sometimes there is launch lag but who cares!). Now all my apps are all available at handy urls without me having to worry about starting up thin with strange ports and what not.

I did run into an issue when installing while using iTerm2 but using Terminal.app solved this.

So far this is running nicely and I’m eager to see how it holds up to common use!
