Gemfile, add the following dependencies:
gem 'fastercsv' # Only required on Ruby 1.8 and below gem 'rails_admin'
$ bundle install
And then run:
$ rails g rails_admin:install
This generator will install RailsAdmin and Devise if you don't already have it installed. Devise is strongly recommended to protect your data from anonymous users. Note: If you do not already have Devise installed, make sure you remove the registerable module from the generated user model.
It will modify your
mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/admin', :as => 'rails_admin' # Feel free to change '/admin' to any namespace you need.
Note: Your RailsAdmin namespace cannot match your Devise model name, or you will get an infinite redirect error. The following will generate infinite redirects.
mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/admin', :as => 'rails_admin' devise_for :admins
Consider renaming your RailsAdmin namespace:
mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/rails_admin', :as => 'rails_admin' devise_for :admins
See #715 for more details.
It will also add an intializer that will help you getting started. (head for config/initializers/rails_admin.rb)
$ bundle exec rake db:migrate

Start the server:
