Provisional creates a new Rails project, using a standard Rails 2.3 application template, and checks it into a new SCM repository.
In the future, Provisional may be expanded to create production and staging environments, set up continuous integration, and automate other tasks that are usually performed at the beginning of a project.
Provisional requires Rails 2.3.0 or greater.
Provisional is only tested on Mac OS X. It should also work on Linux. It is not tested or supported on Windows.
sudo gem install provisional
Options: --name, -n <s>: Name of the project --scm, -s <s>: SCM to use (default: git) --rails, -r <s>: Path to rails generator script (default: first occurrence of rails in $PATH) --template, -t <s>: Rails template to use (default: viget) --version, -v: Print version and exit --help, -h: Show this message
The SCM option can be one of the following (“project_name” refers to the value of the –name option):
git: creates a git repository in the project_name directory
github: creates a git repository in the project_name directory, creates project_name on GitHub using the specified credentials, and adds it as origin (see section below about required Git configuration)
(Subversion and Viget-specific SCM's were removed in Provisional 2.0.0. They may return at a later date.)
The template option can be either a literal path to a template file, a URL for a template on a remote server, or the name of one of the templates found in lib/provisional/templates (without the .rb suffix.) The default viget template does the following:
freezes rails from currently installed gems
installs gems: mocha, factory_girl, shoulda
installs plugins: hoptoad_notifier, jrails, model_generator_with_factories, viget_deployment, vl_cruise_control
installs a .gitignore file to ignore logs, temp files, sqlite3 databases, rcov reports, and database.yml
generates Capistrano configuration with viget_deployment
copies database.yml to database.yml-sample
removes public/index.html, test/fixtures, prototype, and script.aculo.us
creates a SCM repository and checks the application in (pushing to origin if the github SCM is used)
To use GitHub, you will need to place your GitHub username and token in your Git configuration as described here: github.com/guides/local-github-config
