Ruby Show in Web Browser - Web Server Integration
EditRocket provides the ability for users to view Ruby code in a web browser.
To work correctly, EditRocket needs some information about the local Ruby web server. The first time the show in web browser option is clicked when using a Ruby file, a configuration will display prompting the user for information about the local Ruby web server. This window can also be displayed using the Tools - Set Local Web Server Properties menu item.
The web server info screen contains fields for entering the local Ruby web server URL and the Ruby document root.
Local Ruby Web Server URL: - Enter the URL of the local
Ruby web server. For example, http://localhost
Ruby Document Root: - Enter the location on the file system that is the root directory for Ruby files for the local web server.
Based on the local web server URL and the Ruby document root, EditRocket will build a URL to send to the system's default web browser. If the currently edited file is contained within a directory that is part of the local web server's document tree, EditRocket will simply construct the proper URL for displaying the Ruby file.
If the Ruby file is not contained within the web server's document tree, EditRocket will create a temporary file. The directory chosen for the temporary file will be based on analyzing the path of the currently edited file, and the path of the web server document root.
