"Pow like" development in Ubuntu with Rails

If your other team members use MacOS Pow for development.
But you develop with Ubuntu.

Suppose, the development domain name is: coderwall.dev

To work with Pow like environment in Ubuntu you need the following:

Add the following to /etc/hosts:   coderwall.dev   api.coderwall.dev   www.coderwall.dev   assets.coderwall.dev

and any other subdomain you will need

In your Rails config (example: config/environments/development.rb ) define:

PRIMARY_DOMAIN = "coderwall.dev:3000"

and add it to ASSETS_DOMAIN and other

config.action_controller.asset_host = "//assets.#{PRIMARY_DOMAIN}"

Start your rails s

Verify your app works correctly from: http://coderwall.dev

Say Thanks

You should add PRIMARY_DOMAIN const to config/environments/development.rb .
