Narratron

What is it?

From the front page:

Narratron is a web-based implementation of the Exquisite Corpse technique for writing stories. Find a story, either by checking out today's public story or by being linked to it by a group participating in making their own, and you'll be shown one of the most recent sentences written in that story—but nothing before that.


> Try to figure out what sentence should come next, send that in, and then follow the story along as it goes. Together we'll make something weird and wonderful.

How does it work?

This is my first Rails app so I'm still working out all the Rails-y specifics, but here's what I know to tell you:

  • Ruby 2.1.2
  • Rails 4.1.1
  • Using rbenv and bundler
  • postgresql in development and production

Got all the stuff! How do I run it?

  • run bundle install to install all the gem dependencies.
  • run bundle exec rake db:create and bundle exec rake db:migrate to get your db set up
  • run bundle exec foreman start to start unicorn.

Can I help?

Probably! If you spot anything small that needs fixing, you're welcome to send a pull request. For anything bigger I'd love to discuss it first—feel free to get in touch with me and we can chat.
