=============== HOW TO RUN =============== I use the swiftriver daemons approach from http://wiki.github.com/ajturner/swiftriver/installation You can kick off the polling daemons in lib/daemons by running: RAILS_ENV=development script/daemons start OR RAILS_ENV=development ruby lib/daemons/poll_twitter_ctl start =============== HOW TO INSTALL =============== Also see the /about page on the site for other details that may be relevant. 1) You will need postgres and postgis. These are used for spatial queries and for full text search as well as ordinary database storage. It is unlikely you'll get this running on mysql easily. You'll need the world borders in the database - see this url: http://blog.newsplore.com/2009/02/22/spincloud-labs-political-boundaries-overlay-in-google-maps-part-1/comment-page-1 There are some gotchas - shp2pgsql requires UTf8 support enabled. So if you are making it from the freebsd ports for example you need to do a 'make config' to enable that. You may want to also make sure that postgres is built with GEOS - not sure if this is needdd however. Also the utf8 encoding is bizarre. You may want to try encode as latin1. Basically Make a spatially enabled database like so: createuser -p # name angel password angel createdb -O angel angel createlang plpgsql angel psql -d angel -f /usr/local/share/postgis/lwpostgis.sql psql -d angel -f /usr/local/share/postgis/spatial_ref_sys.sql wget http://mappinghacks.com/data/TM_WORLD_BORDERS-0.2.zip unzip TM_WORLD_BORDERS-0.2.zip shp2pgsql -E LATIN1 -d TM_WORLD_BORDERS-0.2.shp world_boundaries angel > wb_dump.sql psql angel < wb_dump.sql # you will want to do postgres grants on these tables to the angel owner 2) There are a pile of gems that are required: gem install GeoRuby # used by: script/plugin install git://github.com/fragility/spatial_adapter.git gem install sanitize gem install tsearch2 gem install json-pure gem install ... 3) There is a settings.yml file that has pile of third party requirements such as keys from metacarta. 4) There is some test data to seed the database - you can load it like this: rake db:migrate:redo rake db:seed 5) I like to use passenger phusion - it is optiona. 6) type "script/server start" to run the application. it will appear on port 80 and you can use a web browser to see it. 7) Use compass to rebuild the css
