Setting up EliteJournal on TextDrive without a vhost

Posted by admin

TextDrive is the official host for Ruby on Rails and as such gets all the action for cool integration efforts. We have a bunch in store that’ll turn the current state of “easy to get going” into “ridiculously easy to get flying”.

While that is cooking, Scott Baron has written up an excellent guide on how to install Elite Journal on TextDrive without using another vhost. He even created a testing blog just to prove it.

For those of you that don’t have a TextDrive account yet, I’d like to reiterate the point that this is one of the best ways to support the development of Rails (short of contributing patches or documentation).

They have some incredibly reasonable plans, an excellent environment for Ruby on Rails development, a staff that actually cares deeply about Ruby and Rails, and they’re contributing 50% of the profits on Rails signups to further development of the framework.

So if you’re still stuck elsewhere, now is the time to think about migrating.

And that concludes this shameless plug for TextDrive hidding behind the appearance of a documentation announcement.
