Passenger (mod_rails for Apache)

It increases application performance in a few ways. First, it uses EventMachine for network traffic (eventmachine is an event-based asynchronous network library which uses epoll on Linux for high network performance). Secondly, it reverses the way Proxies normally work by letting the nodes in the pool connect to Swiftipl...

NOTE: This project is no longer in active development. It has been superseded by the built-in scaffold_resource generator in Rails.
