Installing

Quick Setup

If you're already familiar with ruby and have rvm/rbenv/direnv/etc, this project is pretty much set up to work from a fresh checkout:

git clone https://github.com/activate/ActivateHub.git
cd ActivateHub
bundle install
bundle exec rake db:setup # same as bundle exec rake db:create db:seed
bundle exec rails server -blocalhost

There are additional things you can set up, such as switching from SQLite to PostgreSQL, setting up multi-tenancy, obtaining a Google API key for displaying maps, a DISQUS key for testing comments, etc.

Some of these feature are currently undocumented, see: https://github.com/activate/ActivateHub/issues/66.
