# updated as of Ruby Reports 0.6.1
rope is a simple tool that comes with Ruport that will drop a directory structure for you and generate some boilerplate code / config files. To try it out, just type rope myprojname on the command line.
Once you do this, you should see something like this:
bash-3.1$ ls my_proj_name/
Rakefile app config data log output sql templates test util
This has given you a rake file, a simple config file(config/ruport_config.rb), hooks for Ruport's logging system, and a two simple applications.
The first is util/build.rb . This will eventually enable generating all sorts of components for Ruport, but right now can be used to generate report files.
ruby util/build.rb report my_report
Now when you run rake test, you'll see something like this:
1) Failure:
test_flunk(TestMyReport) [./test/test_my_report.rb:9]:
Write your real tests here or in any test/test_* file.
So you have a test already for your report, and your report file has been stowed in app/reports, waiting for you to begin working on it. This has put in the necessary boilerplate to set up a Ruport Report, hooked into the default configuration file, and enabled logging to work out of the box.
you can point this script at an SQL file and run it. This will respond by printing the results as text to STDOUT. This is a good way to check that your configuration file is hooked up properly and also a way to check if any query files you have are working. You can also provide SQL on STDIN, if that is helpful to you.
