Sinatra Bootstrap

A simple Sinatra starting point

Sinatra Bootstrap supports:

What is the purpose of Sinatra Bootstrap?

I created Sinatra Bootstrap in order to have a consistent starting point for my Sinatra projects. I like having Haml, Sass and Compass available to me in every project, likewise jQuery makes its way into every production as well. A number of helpful rake tasks have also been included.

How do I get started?

bundle install

How do I start the application?

Start the app by running:

rake s

This rake command runs bundle exec shotgun config.ru behind the scenes for you and starts the app on Sinatra's default port 9393 and will now be able to view the application in your web browser at this URL http://localhost:9393.

You'll also want to open a new terminal window to the same directory and run compass watch to watch the Sass files for changes.

Helper Rake Tasks

There are a few helper Rake tasks that will help you to clear and compile your Sass stylesheets as well as a few other helpful tasks. There is also a generate task, so you can generate a new project at a defined location based on the bootstrap.

rake -T

rake css:clear         # Clear the CSS
rake css:compile       # Compile CSS
rake css:compile:prod  # Compile CSS for production
rake generate          # Generate a new project at dir=foo
rake s                 # Run the app
