Frequency is an online Nintendo community that has a discussion board, picture sharing, profiles and a chatroom system to connect gamers.
It's easy to get started, just run the following commands in your command line of choice. First we need to bundle install to get all of the application's dependencies:
Next make sure you have a local instance of Postgres running. If you're on a Mac, the easiest way to do this is to have the Postgres app running.
Then we need to create a new database:
Run all of the pending migrations:
Then install ImageMagick which will allow you to process avatars and images locally.
Create a new user account by signing up, then open the rails console with
rails c. Then type in:
u = User.first u.admin = 'true' u.save
We are using a Heroku labs user-env-compile (https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/labs-user-env-compile) which fixes precompiling assets at deploy time. This means that changing environment variables on Heroku will NO LONGER RECOMPILE THE APP. Hence, the variables you imposed will not be visible in the app yet. This means you need to push separate code to force recompilation.
If asset precompilation ever fails and you have modified any of the assets, you can manually run
heroku run rake assets:precompile
If you ever have to run migrations for a deploy, turn on maintenance mode before deploying:
And then turn it off once deployment is done
We use Oink which lets us test for memory leaks. In order to do this, run:
oink --threshold=1 log/*
or for more detail
oink --format verbose --threshold=1 log/*
Mac users can run an Apache benchmarking tool which lets you force memory leaks to accrue memory usage:
ab -kc 6 -t 30 http://127.0.0.1:3000/
