Of course, the moment I write this, I found the answer by reading the code in the railtie for the gem:
# application.rb, inside the main block: config.global_id.app = 'wakka'
Hope this helps someone else...
I am working through an elaboration on the recent screencast, using GlobalID to build references to polymorphic associations, but I need to be able to take advantage of the GlobalID.app= method, and I can't seem to find a way to hook that in the application startup. I've tried an initializer and also adding that method to the application.rb in the initialization block. Can you recommend a place where I can set the name of the app for all instances of GlobalID?
