passenger with http_gzip_static_module

27 Feb 2012

Rails 3.1 has been released for a long time, asset pipeline becomes more and more popular, I also upgraded my rails website.

I used nginx + passenger for my rails projects, but nginx only supports dynamic gzip support (compress in runtime), there is a http_gzip_static_module for nginx, which can make full use of rails asset pipeline.

I don't like the way to customize my Nginx installation during passenger installation, I found there is a pull request to add http_gzip_static_module, so I changed to source code of passenger gem, then installed nginx as default. :-)
