sPotholes

Stories in Ready

This repository is for our sPotholes administrative backend, API, and web frontend.

Setup

This project expects you to at least have Ruby 2.1+ and Homebrew installed.

After you clone the repo, navigate to spotholes directory and run:

./bin/setup

This will walk you through the setup of the tools for the project for Mac OS X and Homebrew. Additional platform setup scripts/updates are welcome.

Dependencies

sPotholes uses the following tools/libraries outside of the gem bundle.

  • imagemagick (v6.8.9)
  • libwebp (v0.4.2)
  • node.js (v0.12) - This includes npm
  • bower (v1.3.12) - installed via npm (sudo) npm install -g bower

sPotholes uses Google Maps Embed API and requires a browser key to function. This can be obtained by following these instructions. You'll need an app and enable Google Maps Embed API for said app. Then use the credentials section of APIs & auth, to create a Public API access key. The browser version.

Manually Setting Up Local Environment

For image manipulation you will need to install imagemagick and libwebp.

You can install imagemagick and libwebp via homebrew:

brew install imagemagick
brew install webp

Note: If either package is not available, you may need to update homebrew. brew update

Alternate Install libwebp via macports:

First update macports, then install libwebp:

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port install webp

Install node.js and bower

brew install node
npm install -g bower

Get web components

bower install

Set up the database (from within the sPotholes directory):

rake db:create
rake db:migrate

####We recommed using [POW] (http://pow.cx/) for the local server as it is pretty much configuration free.

Just do:

curl get.pow.cx | sh

And then:

cd ~/.pow
ln -s /path/to/spotholes

That's it! Your application is now being served at: http://spotholes.dev
