The project

Getting it running

This is a basic Rails (5.2) project without anything added that needs additional steps to get started. There is no database and as a result no rake tasks are required to be ran.

The project can be installed simply with:

bundle install

Followed by running it with:

rails s

This will start a localhost at localhost:3000, just like any other Rails project.

Where to find what

Content

We do not use a database for anything. All content can be found in config/content. Everything is categorised in different .yml files. These files are loaded in at app/helpers/content_helper.rb.

Views

View can be found in app/views. We are using High Voltage to run static pages. We use this for most of our pages. These pages are located in app/views/pages. Most of the content logic is handled in these files. Some more complex pages have their own controllers. An example is the where_controller.rb in app/controllers. This is a super simple filter system that takes 2 parameters /where/[key]/[value] such as /where/ammo-type/heavy. The views can be found app/views/where.

Images

Images are found in app/assets/images. Images are categorised by what they are intended to be used for. All images are ran through TinyPNG to make sure they are properly compressed.

SCSS and JS

SCSS can be found in app/assets/stylesheets and app/assets/javascripts respectively.

SCSS

All SCSS is written according to BEM. Simply said: .parent__child--modifier. Each file is named and categorised according to the parent classed. The CSS properties should be roughly categorised by Box -> Position -> Style -> Font -> Expensive modifier (box-shadow, transform, etc.).

JS

All JS is written in ES6, with no regards to older browsers. We do not use Babel or anything similar to convert our ES6 back to ES5. No frameworks are used, we write in plain JS. No plugins should be used, with exceptions.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
