Ruxtape: A Ruby Mixtape
Ruxtape is a ruby-based mixtape that allows you to share personal playlists with your friends or family. You can create playlists for your friends, sharing with them is easy, as they just need to have the link and a flash player in their brower. It is not intended as a way to share music, nor pirate any copyrighted material. Make sure that you have the copyright owner’s permission before sharing your Ruxtape. It was inspired by opentape.
We’ve included all the libraries that you should need along with Ruxtape, so you should not have to monkey around with anything except the following items, listed below:
- Ruby >= 1.8.4
- RubyGems >= 1.1
- a valid OpenID login
Ruxtape has a sample rack adapter included to make deployment quite simple. Of course, it comes with it’s own Camping Server so you can simply type
./camping . from the root directory and Ruxtape will be available on port 3000. You can also copy
examples/example.config.ru to the root directory and use anything that Rack supports. The included rack config file words wonderfully with Phusion Passenger. Deployment should be as simple as copying the Rack config file from
- I’m trying to upload files but they aren’t appearing.
- Make sure that RUXTAPE_ROOT/public/songs is writable by the process that your web server is running as.
All contributions are welcome, simply fork or clone the Ruxtape Repository, make your changes and send a pull request. Our goal is to keep this application simple and so we’re focused on keeping the lines of code ~< 400.
