Usually I’m using
rails s with thin or webbrick when developing web
applications because I’ve had lots of issues with pow and file uploads. But when
I’m working on multiply projects within same day it’s really handy to have pow
Hey wait, what is pow? Pow is according to there own website “a zero-config Rack server for Mac OS X”. But it’s still needs some configuration… It’s really great when working on multiply rack applications. It will boot up the apps you visit in the browser and have support for subdomains so you don’t have to mix with your DNS or hosts file. You can read more about pow on there website at pow.cx.
In my case the zero-config part did not apply. Whitout any configurations this is what I see.
Pow has a good troubleshooting with lots of examples for similar problems.
Because I’m using both ZSH and Rbenv I listen to there advise and put this
content in my
Sadly I still have the exact same result as before.
I’m also adding
eval "$(rbenv init -)" at the bottom of the file which I read
in a issue they linked to in the troubleshooting. Now it tells me that I haven’t
installed the correct ruby version used for this project which I know I have
From here I could guess that it’s not finding the correct path to my rbenv. When
echo $(rbenv root) in my terminal and found out that my root path is
/usr/local/var/rbenv. I’m also know that rbenv uses
$RBENV_ROOT gives the same path in return. So my problem may be that I have
multiply versions of rbenv installed. Next step will be to tell pow to use the
same version I’m using in my terminal. Just changing the PATH from
/usr/local/var/rbenv didn’t work but when I also set
/usr/local/var/rbenv it did. Yey!!!
