  • Powder is "syntactic sugar for Pow." Install the gem (gem install powder) and you'll get a powder command-line utility that makes it easier to add applications, tail your log files, and restart Pow. See the Powder readme for more examples of what it can do.
  • Powify is "an easy-to-use wrapper for 37signals' Pow." Install the gem (gem install powify) to get a powify command for installing, updating, and managing Pow and your virtual hosts. See the Powify readme for the full list of commands.
  • Showoff is "the easiest way to share localhost over the web." It creates a tunnel between your computer and the Showoff server, then gives you a publicly accessible URL so others can see the app or site you're working on. Showoff supports Pow's virtual hosts — install the gem via gem install showoff-io, then run show dev. (with the trailing dot). Your Pow apps will be accessible at
