That's it. Now you're ready to change the world. Here's to making a dent in things together!
Make sure you install rubytree gem's older version, not just the latest: rubytree -v 0.7.0 We're running Ruby 1.8.7 in dev and production
If you encounter an error like “uninitialized constant ActiveSupport::Dependencies::Mutex”, then you need to get the correct rubygems version. Currently this is 1.3.7.
Platform workstream: bettermeans.com/projects/2/dashboard
IRC: #bettermeans irc.feenode.net
mailinglist: email@example.com (or build in workstream forum)
We are working on using bundler to wrap up the dev environment. To learn more about it check it out here: gembundler.com/
Our tests are broken. Help us write great tests and catch up on our testing environment!
capybara-webkit depends on a WebKit implementation from Qt as explained in github.com/thoughtbot/capybara-webkit/wiki/Installing-QT
The bettermeans projects is renamed to “LOCAL BETTERMEANS” to avoid confusion with the production dashboards.
All passwords in included dev db are set to: “password”
All private workstreams are removed.
