    One thing I don't understan is whether I should add Rails as an external app or just use the Ruby Rails under Server in order to get RoR going?

    both should work, using the rails context is recommended.

    But what's the difference? It's a bit unclear in the documentation of how to use Rails, where you talk about LSAPI and then there is the tab with Ruby Rails under Server settings.

    What is best for performance, and what is best for my local setup where I want to have it as easy as possible?

    No real difference, the rails context just make the configuration easier, behind the scene, corresponding external app will be added automatically.

    If I want to take advantage of LSAPI, is there still no difference? By using the context tab, is my Rails app utilizing the LSAPI to talk to Ruby/Rails?

    When you say "... behind the scene, corresponding external app will be added automatically. ..." does that mean it will be added such as to utilize LSAPI?

    Yes, that's correct.

    So is there ANY advantage of using the External App tab in terms of tweaking of parameters for a specific Rails app?

    It is up to what flexibilities you need.
