Founded Rails

A pre-built content management system for your founded x site. Effortlessly deploy to heroku below, email us if you need any setup assistance.

Prerequesites

Before you can deploy you need to setup a typeform, this allows startups to join your network. Follow the guide below and then you can deploy to heroku using a 1-click install.

  1. You’ll first need to create a Typeform account.

  2. Setup a form with the following questions and field types (you can use different wording for the answers):

    Field type Question
    Short text What’s your startup called?
    Number What year was it founded?
    Short text Where are you based?
    Long text What does your startup do?
    Website What is your website?
    Short text What is your twitter username?
    Website URL of your logo
    Short text And your name is?
    Email And your email address?
    Long text Anything else you want to add?
  3. Setting up field mapping

    This is the most complicated part of the setup, open your typeform clicking the View link in the header.

    View the source of your typeform e.g. view-source:https://foundedinireland1.typeform.com/to/yI1dff and search for fields, here you’ll find a mapping between the questions and their typeform IDs. E.g.

    "fields":[{"id":"bp2PAMt5DapV","title":"What’s your startup called?","ref":"4df38107-dea3-491b-9505-c606474da3e8","validations":{"required":false},"type":"short_text"}
    

    In this instance the question is What’s your startup called?, the ID is bp2PAMt5DapV and the database column is name. Your ID will be different and if you used different wording for the questions they will be different too.

    You want to build a mapping of ID to database column, here are the database columns we have mapped to questions.

    Database Column Question
    name What’s your startup called?
    year_founded What year was it founded?
    location Where are you based?
    description What does your startup do?
    url What is your website?
    twitter What is your twitter username?
    logo_url URL of your logo
    contact_name And your name is?
    contact_email And your email address?
    extra_info Anything else you want to add?

    So using the question title you find in the source of your form, take each ID and replace it below pointing to the appropriate database column.

    {"bp2PAMt5DapV":"name","Av0UXopCYUdj":"year_founded","FNOCWDDXiWnM":"location","DfgMjFJccVLN":"description","qIJf9xi70ZP5":"url","umMRGv2QZTuj":"twitter","qTFmXYLSEbPL":"logo_url","d1vBKmaB8ahg":"contact_name","LOk5rkEgVaAM":"contact_email","O6e59hlEzZuc":"extra_info"}
    

    When deploying to heroku set this mapping as the value for the TYPEFORM_FIELD_IDS_TO_NAMES key.

  4. Take note of your form URL by clicking the View button in the top navigation and copying the URL, it should look like:

    https://your-username.typeform.com/to/your-form-id

    Use this for the TYPEFORM_URL property when deploying

  5. Take your form ID from the URL above, it is the last segment of the URL, usually 5-8 characaters long. Use this for the TYPEFORM_UID property when deploying.

  6. In My Account (click your initials in the top right corner) create a personal access token and use it for the TYPEFORM_ACCESS_TOKEN property when deploying.

Using the information above you can now deploy. Please contact us if you run into any problems or require additional features or help setting up.

Deploy

Running the app in development

Ensure you have the correct ruby version (check .ruby-version) and PostgreSQL installed.

# Installs required gems, setups up database and creates .env enviornment file from sample
$ bin/setup

Pull down a copy of the live database

Make sure to substitue your heroku app name and database name from config/database.yml

$ heroku pg:backups:capture
$ curl -o latest.dump `heroku pg:backups public-url -a foundedireland`
$ pg_restore --verbose --clean --no-acl --no-owner -h localhost -d foundedireland_dev latest.dump
