Launch your own advanced crowdfunding page.


Please Note

The open source version of Tilt Open contained in this repo is no longer in active development and we are no longer issuing Sandbox API credentials.

Please visit tilt.com/pro to see the newest features we've added to the hosted version.

Install

Dependencies

To run Tilt Open you'll need the following prerequisites installed:

  • Homebrew (for downloading software packages)
$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"
  • Git (version control)
$ brew install git
  • RVM, ruby 1.9.3, and the Rails gem
$ \curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --rails --ruby=1.9.3
$ rvm use 1.9.3 --default
$ brew install imagemagick
  • If you recently upgraded to OS X Mavericks (10.9) or got a new Mac computer and are having issues with the json gem during the bundle process, you may need to install the Command Line Developer Tools using the following command and clicking Install when prompted:
$ xcode-select --install

Local Setup

Get started by:

  • Downloading a .zip of the latest release to your local machine

    or

  • Creating a fork of Tilt Open and cloning it to your local machine.

After you've got the repo on your local machine, switch to the newly created project directory

$ cd {DIRECTORY}

Create a .env file in the project root…easiest way is to create a copy of the .env.example file

$ cp .env.example .env

Then open up the .env file and fill in the variables with your app_name and credentials. Leave ENABLE_ASSET_SYNC set to 'true' if you plan to use AWS to host your assets (recommended). The bucket for asset syncing should be in the US Standard (us-east-1) zone.

Generate your SECRET_TOKEN and DEVISE_SECRET_KEY by running the following command from the root of your project directory.

Do NOT reuse the same secret token - you'll need to generate it twice.

$ foreman run rake secret

Important: Your APP_NAME must not have a space in it. Underscores and hypens are accepted.

Your .env file should look something like this:

APP_NAME=myawesomeapp
CROWDTILT_SANDBOX_KEY=crowdtiltsandboxkey
CROWDTILT_SANDBOX_SECRET=crowdtiltsandboxsecret
ENABLE_ASSET_SYNC=true
AWS_BUCKET=awsbucket
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=awsaccesskey
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=awssecretaccesskey
MAILGUN_DOMAIN=myawesomeapp.mailgun.org
MAILGUN_PASSWORD=mailgunpassword
MAILGUN_USERNAME=postmaster@myawesomeapp.mailgun.org
SECRET_TOKEN=secrettoken
DEVISE_SECRET_KEY=secrettoken

Install the gems

$ bundle install

Deploying to Heroku

  1. Sign up for a Heroku Account
  2. Install the Heroku Toolbelt

Create a new Heroku app

$ heroku create {APP NAME}

Install the Heroku config plugin if you don't already have it installed

$ heroku plugins:install git://github.com/ddollar/heroku-config.git

Push the configuration to Heroku. NOTE: If you have already written config vars to Heroku, they will not be overwritten unless you pass the --overwrite flag as well.

$ heroku config:push

Deploy the code to Heroku

$ git push heroku master

Migrate the database

$ heroku run rake db:migrate

Launch the app!

$ heroku open

(Optional) It is highly recommended to install the Papertrail addon to create searchable logs should you run into issues. The "choklad" level is free.

$ heroku addons:add papertrail:choklad
