Edge Rails ?

Edge Rails ?
Before you get to know how to install and use Edge Rails, you need to know what actually Edge Rails is.

Edge Rails actually means running a local developmental version of rails. It’s an alternative to gem rails.

Many a times I have thought how to freeze my rails application to local gems version or a particular gems version, So that I can run my frozen application on some other system which have some different version of rails installed. Luckily I found Edge Rails.

For example:- Consider you have frozen your rails application to the latest rails version 2.3.2 and you want to run this application on a different system which have a much older version of rails, consider for example version 2.1.0.

In this case you can run your newest frozen version of rails application on  other system, which have an older version of rails installed, without any glitches or bugs, using Edge Rails.

Get user accessing ip address in rails?

Get user accessing ip address rails?

request.ip ->returns the ip, whether is is a local proxy ip (localhost address) or not.
*request.remote_ip -> is smarter and gets the ip address of the client outside of local proxies.
3)If you are using apache in front of a mongrel, then remote_ip will return the source address of the request, which in this case will be local host because the Apache web server is making the request, so instead put this in your controller:

@remote_ip = request.env["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"]
