Puma-dev is the emotional successor to pow. It provides a quick and easy way to manage apps in development on OS X; supporting web sockets and ssl.

puma-dev now supports the ability to map your application with a helper. This would replace the need to use the pumad script as shown in the video.

puma-dev link [-n name] [dir]

Thanks for the screencast. Do you know whether puma-dev works with foreman?

kobaltz PRO said almost 2 years ago:

You may not need foreman with puma-dev since it will automatically start up your Rails app on the first request.

marklar PRO said almost 2 years ago:

I use my procfile with foreman to start redis and resque, would these automatically start with puma-dev?

kobaltz PRO said almost 2 years ago:

Puma-dev wouldn't automatically start those services. It will just start the Rails app.

Im having the same problem Im using procfile with foreman. How can we implement the use of it.

I got this working fine except I don't get any logging for the actual app that's running. It tells the the app has booted and then nothing.

* Directory for apps: /Users/gary/.puma-dev
* Domains: dev
* DNS Server port: 9253
* HTTP Server port: inherited from launchd
* HTTPS Server port: inherited from launchd
! Puma dev listening on http and https

Without being able to see the logging output it's not usable for me, which sucks because this seems rather nice.

Edit: turnning on debug mode shows minimal logging. Still haven't found how to enable full development logging.

kobaltz PRO said about 1 year ago:

You should be able to tail the development logs. You should be able to go into your app directory and tail the logs

tail -f log/development.log

After you run the puma dev install, it should not stay in your terminal, it should redirect you back to the command prompt.

blimey85 said about 1 year ago:

Well I'll be damned. That makes perfect sense. The other log file shows the puma-dev specific stuff and the stuff I need is where you indicated. That's perfect. Thanks for the help! I'm learning a lot from your great videos.

I added a small script to manage puma-dev easily. Basically all scripts suggested above, in a bash script.

Here is the gist https://gist.github.com/ramonrails/d7056dd8af8c583f56493903fefbdb0c

Thank you.

PS: Nice video series. Keep going. Open source community is great! I hope my tiny contribution helps.
