If you have problem with sending XHR requests from different domains, you find trouble to get content, because
XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://different.domain.local:3000/visits. Origin http://localhost:3000 is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin.
The solution is to setup response headers: Access-Control-Request-Method, Access-Control-Allow-Origin.
1headers['Access-Control-Allow-Origin'] = '*' 2headers['Access-Control-Request-Method'] = '*'
Example for rails:
1#app/application_controller.rb 2after_filter :set_access_control_headers 3 4def set_access_control_headers 5 headers['Access-Control-Allow-Origin'] = '*' 6 headers['Access-Control-Request-Method'] = '*' 7end
You can look to sources of the sample Sinatra application in GitHub. Demo live in Heroku. Or use these smaples.
