I use Passenger to drive my Ruby on Rails projects I run at home on my Mac. I used to use Mongrel as my server, in fact thatâs what LOL runs on today. But Iâve had such good experiences with Passenger that Iâm planning to switch LOL to it as well as using it for Big Villain when itâs ready.
Phusion is holding a fund raiser prior to releasing the next version of Passenger and trying to raise $14K. Given the amount of work it represents and the level of importance that it is rising to as a server in the Rails world, I think that if you do Ruby on Rails development you should give at minimum a few dollars to support its continued development. I made my contribution and Iâve both Twittered and blogged about the fund raiser as well and I hope you will too.
