This is just a series of scaffolds and was built during my rides to the brilliant eurucamp. It was just an experiment to see what one can do in little time and to get familiar with devise and cancan (never used them before, so I downloaded the docs and read them on the train). devise and cancan are awesome by the way. It didn't take long.
This is not good code and should never be really deployed. Also it might not work. This is just a bare prototype. I would never write an app in this way for a real application. It's something you can build within a short time, so you can tell your customer to come back in a couple of hours and show him/her a basic version of the app.
What does the app do?
You can create users, users can login etc. Users can create offers (which might be anything). And you have a very rudimentary search based on the title of offers.
What was used to build this?
- Ruby on Rails - well the framework and all the scaffolds
- devise - authentication & views for registration, sig in etc.
- cancan - authorization
- bootstrap-rails - A gem porting Twitter bootstrap to scss and making it available as a gem
- carrierwave - used for picture uploads
Can I check it out?
Sure. It's running on heroku just don't user your real email address, password or anything (well the password is encrypted with bcrypt it should be fine but well, just a toy app).
This isn't code I would actually write in an app. It's a throwaway prototype. There are no meaningful tests or something... it was fun anyway. So if you want to get a sense of my coding please check out other projects. Thank you.
