Setup instructions

Below you'll find setup instructions in case you want to contribute, play with it on your local machine, or setup your own instance for private use or for your organization.

1. Install dependencies

asciinema.org site is a Ruby on Rails application. You need to have following dependencies installed:

  • Ruby 2.0+ (Ruby 2.1 is recommended)

    gem install bundler

  • PostgreSQL 8+ with libpq development headers
    sudo apt-get install postgresql libpq-dev on Debian/Ubuntu
