Setting Up HireMe

We have included a bootstrap script that sets up the application. Below are the instructions to get you up and running:

  1. Clone the repo and cd into the hire-redux directory

  2. Run sh script/bootstrap in terminal for an automated setup process. If you'd rather run the steps manually you can reference this script for the correct steps

  3. In the script, you will be prompted to update the application.yml file in the app/config directory and add your Crunchbase API key and Gmail username and password (a Crunchbase API key can be obtained here

  4. If you'd like to change your database setup from the default (SQLite3) you can change the settings in the database.yml file located in app/config

  5. In the script you will be asked if you want to add an example dataset. This will add several users, and the ability to login with an example student and admin account:

    example student email: student@example.com
    example student pass: student
    example admin email: admin@example.com
    example admin password: admin
  6. You're ready to go!
