Pow Update Brings Wildcard DNS Functionality For Any IP

Thursday, 07 June 2012

Pow is an awesome "zero-configuration web server for Rails development on OS X." If you're not using it, you should be. It makes managing different Rails projects locally brain-dead simple.

With the latest update, 37signals has also launched xip.io:

Pow 0.4.0 has built-in support for xip.io, a free service from 37signals that provides wildcard DNS for any IP address.

With xip.io you can access your Rails apps from devices on your local network, like iPads, iPhones, Windows VMs, and other computers. No configuration required.

A great solution to a longstanding frustration. Check out the blog post for more info.
