Great video as ever - one of the changes in current TS is the indices are no longer stored in the models.


Great railscast! I didn't like the gmail option but found this awesome blog post which explains how to start postfix on your mac and send mail from that - no passwords or environment variables required

In brief:

in terminal do
sudo postfix start

In config/environments/development.rb :
config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp
config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = {
:address => "localhost",
:port => 25,
:domain => "",

Worked great on Mac OSX Lion, Rails 3.2

Remember to look in your gmail spam folder for the email (on not just Mac Mail app)


Sorry for the content-free post but just had to say, that was an amazing episode, thank you Ryan :)
