zbatery - rackup-like command to launch Zbatery
zbatery [-c CONFIG_FILE] [-E RACK_ENV] [-D] [RACKUP_FILE]
A rackup(1)-like command to launch Rack applications using Zbatery. It is expected to be started in your application root (APP_ROOT), but the "working_directory" directive may be used in the CONFIG_FILE.
While Zbatery takes a myriad of command-line options for compatibility with ruby(1) and rackup(1), it is recommended to stick to the few command-line options specified in the SYNOPSIS and use the CONFIG_FILE as much as possible.
This defaults to "config.ru" in APP_ROOT. It should be the same file used by rackup(1) and other Rack launchers, it uses the Rack::Builder DSL.
Embedded command-line options are mostly parsed for compatibility with rackup(1) but strongly discouraged.
Path to the Unicorn-specific config file. The config file is implemented as a Ruby DSL, so Ruby code may executed. See the RDoc/ri for the Unicorn::Configurator class for the full list of directives available from the DSL.
Run daemonized in the background. The process is detached from the controlling terminal and stdin is redirected to "/dev/null". Unlike many common UNIX daemons, we do not chdir to "/" upon daemonization to allow more control over the startup/upgrade process. Unless specified in the CONFIG_FILE, stderr and stdout will also be redirected to "/dev/null".
Run under the given RACK_ENV. See the RACK ENVIRONMENT section for more details.
Listens on a given ADDRESS. ADDRESS may be in the form of HOST:PORT or PATH, HOST:PORT is taken to mean a TCP socket and PATH is meant to be a path to a UNIX domain socket. Defaults to "0.0.0.0:8080" (all addresses on TCP port 8080) For production deployments, specifying the "listen" directive in CONFIG_FILE is recommended as it allows fine-tuning of socket options.
Listen on a TCP socket belonging to HOST, default is "0.0.0.0" (all addresses). If specified multiple times on the command-line, only the last-specified value takes effect. This option only exists for compatibility with the rackup(1) command, use of "-l"/"--listen" switch is recommended instead.
Listen on the specified TCP PORT, default is 8080. If specified multiple times on the command-line, only the last-specified value takes effect. This option only exists for compatibility with the rackup(1) command, use of "-l"/"--listen" switch is recommended instead.
No-op, this exists only for compatibility with rackup(1).
Evaluate a LINE of Ruby code. This evaluation happens immediately as the command-line is being parsed.
Turn on debug mode, the $DEBUG variable is set to true.
Turn on verbose warnings, the $VERBOSE variable is set to true.
specify $LOAD_PATH. PATH will be prepended to $LOAD_PATH. The ':' character may be used to delimit multiple directories. This directive may be used more than once. Modifications to $LOAD_PATH take place immediately and in the order they were specified on the command-line.
require a specified LIBRARY before executing the application. The "require" statement will be executed immediately and in the order they were specified on the command-line.
The following UNIX signals may be sent to Zbatery (only supported on UNIX):
Accepted values of RACK_ENV and the middleware they automatically load (outside of RACKUP_FILE) are exactly as those in rackup(1):
All unrecognized values for RACK_ENV are assumed to be "none". Production deployments are strongly encouraged to use "deployment" or "none" for maximum performance.
Note that the Rack::ContentLength and Rack::Chunked middlewares are never loaded by default. If needed, they should be individually specified in the RACKUP_FILE, some frameworks do not require them.
