Obtvse uses some ruby 1.9 syntax, so please make sure your ruby -v shows at least 1.9, and please use 1.9 on your host as well!

If you are new to Rails development, check out guides for getting your development environment set up for Mac and Windows.

git clone git://
cd obtvse
bundle install
rake db:migrate

Edit config/config.yml to set up your site information. To set up your admin username and password you will need to set your environment variables.

Start the local server:

rails s

Go to, to administrate you go to /admin

For production, you will want to set your password in config.yml or with environment variables (preferred). On Heroku this is simply:

heroku config:add obtvse_login=<LOGIN> obtvse_password=<PASSWORD>

Or in your shell (~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc for example)

export obtvse_login=<LOGIN>
export obtvse_password=<PASSWORD>

Here's a quick guide for installing on Heroku.


  • Easy deployment
  • Draft preview and post save history
  • Lots of refactoring, cleanup and refinements
