Rogue Rails Starter App

This app is the initial project you should start with at the Rogue Rails workshop.


First ensure you have Vagrant and VirtualBox installed.

You should have already received the file. If you do not have it, ask one of the team mentors. Then add the box if you haven't already.

vagrant box add roguerails-box path/to/

Next clone this repository and run this command inside.

vagrant up

This will start up the virtual environment. If you receive an error, you may want to try it again with vagrant halt and vagrant up.

Then you can SSH into the virtual box:

vagrant ssh

This will drop you into the /vagrant directory which is a shared folder allowing you to run the application. Run the following commands in the box to finish setting up the project.

bundle install
cp config/database.example.yml config/database.yml
rake db:create
rails s

From here you should be able to access the application at http://localhost:3000/

You will need to run any other Rails dependent commands (such as rake db:migrate) within vagrant ssh. However, run git commands outside of this (on your local system).
