My Rails Application Templates

You can use application templates to automate these common tasks you do each time you're creating a new Rails application.


Create a new app using the full template:

rails new myapp -m full.rb

Or apply a template to an existing app:

rake rails:template LOCATION=./testing.rb


  • full.rb: This will create and configure an application with PostgreSQL, RSpec, Capybara, factory_girls, shoulda-matchers & Thin.
  • testing.rb: This will just install and configure RSpec, Capybara, factory_girls & shoulda-matchers.
