Tyrant is a “meta” Rails application designed to run other Rails applications. It was born out of our need to have non-developers work alongside us without requiring a full Rails stack running on their local machines.
Ideally, Tyrant runs (via mongrel) on a development server with multiple user directories that contain SVN working directories with Rails applications. Upon startup, these applications are listed in a user’s dashboard and Tyrant provides the interface to start and stop each one. The configuration settings dictate the available port range, and as a new application is started it will grab the next one available.
- User-configurable settings (including ports and rails application dir)
- Basic user management
- Basic mongrel management (start / stop)
- LDAP integration
- Limiting number of apps a user can run
- Basic log viewing
- Database bootstrapping
$ svn co http://svn.extendviget.com/tyrant/trunk tyrant $ mysqladmin create tyrant_development $ cd tyrant $ rake vl:db_load $ ./script/server
This will set up the database with some sample accounts but no settings. Navigate to http://localhost:3000 to configure your personal settings. Now, your users can log in and start accessing their Rails applications.
More documentation to come, in the meantime check out some of the current ScreenShots.
