I’ve just been trying out running a Sinatra application on our Passenger servers and can confirm that Sinatra apps can now be hosted by 1st Easy!
If you aren’t sure what what Sinatra is, check out the intro at sintatrarb.com. If you want to create a small Ruby-based web application for which the full Rails stack would be overkill, then try it out.
Sinatra hosting is available right now on any Rails hosting account (as an alternative to Rails at this point – more research is required to see if we can run this alongside a Rails app). The (incredibly simple) deployment instructions will be added to our Knowledge Base shortly.
If you have a Rails-enabled dedicated server and would like to be able to run Sinatra apps on there too, just submit a ticket and we’ll sort it out for you.
