What I like about writing generators like this one is that I can capture things I’ve discovered in tangible form so that these lessons can be applied automatically. Computers, it turns out, are rather good at applying if checks.
At the moment, few Rails users use nginx as a front end these days. But if there is demand, I’ll look into (or accept pull requests for ) running nginx as root but rails as a non-root user.
