Github High Scores is a fun way to rank Github repository contributors in a 8-bit, 80's-tastic viewing environment.
git clone git://github.com/leereilly/github-high-scores.git cd github-high-scores ruby app.rb
You'll need to set environment variables on your box. Locally, you can set them in your .bash_profile...
export db_user=some_username export db_pass=some_password export db_host=some_host export db_data=some_database
On Heroku, you can do something like this...
heroku config:add db_user=XXX db_pass=XXX db_host=XXX db_data=XXX
Fork + pull.
