Well got it working with the help of Sascha’s post.
Put it in the dashing’s project public folder
Added the following line to the config.ru located at the root of the project folder
set :outboard_file, ‘http://localhost:3030/outboard.txt’
Restarted it and it works like a charm
I would advise against doing this on a public webserver but I think anyone trying their hands at this will know that.
Exactly what I needed!
