###Development Environment Setup
These setup instructions have been tested on Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows 7 with and without Cygwin, and Linux (Ubuntu 10.8.) Installing and running the site under Windows with or without Cygwin may be possible with enough environmental modifications, but doing so is outside the scope of this document.
CodeMontage currently uses Ruby on Rails 3.2.17 and Postgres 9.2.2. The Gemfile specifies Ruby 2.1.5, but the site also runs in development under 1.9.3 and 2.1.1 (tested in Ubuntu.)

git clone https://github.com/CodeMontageHQ/codemontage.git
cd codemontage bundle install
