Notify Me

"Notify Me" is a 2-page web app that collects email addresses.

Here is what Notify Me looks like by default:

Notify Me was designed for Heroku which uses Postgres as the database server, but can be used locally with sqlite. If you like the idea but want to use different tools, feel free to fork and modify Notify Me for your own needs! The intent was to keep it very simple with few dependencies, so it could be modified easily.

Installation and usage

bundle
rackup

Open your browser to http://localhost:9292/.

Customization

Notify Me is intended to be customized. In notify_me.rb you can change the product name, placeholder email strings, Google Analytics account ID and more. Of course you can also edit the markup of the inline templates as well.

Deploying to Heroku

Install the Heroku Toolbelt.

heroku create
heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql
git push heroku master
heroku open

Viewing email addresses with sqlite locally

sqlite3 notify-me.db
select email from subscriptions;
.quit

Viewing emails addresses on Heroku

heroku run console
Bundler.require
require_relative "notify_me"
Subscription.all.map(&:email)

Testing

rake
