Rails 3 Development Servers - Is mongrel on its way out?

Hi folks,

Because life happened I had to put down rails/web development for a
while. I am starting a new project on rails 3 and noticed that
mongrel isn't even included in the Gemfile which is required in order
to get mongrel to load. What is the school of thought in rails 3 wrt
to a development server? Have people moved on to unicorn or some
other devel server? Any feedback is useful.

Thanks!
Dave

Have you searched the list archives yet? There has been some discussion
of this topic.

Thanks!

Best,

I did but didn’t see anything that really answered my question so I decided to post.

Cheers,

Hi Dave,

You should check out passenger 3.0, fresh from yesterday and really
awesome.

You can now start your development server with a passenger start
command.

hope it helps.
