# # routes.rb # mount Crowdblog::Engine => '/blog_admin'
Your Rails App should implement the "client facing" pages. Read posts from the Crowdblog::Post model.
The gem includes a very basic Devise implementation. We use it in combination with this gem to authenticate via our Google Apps accounts.
Take a look at this code as an implementation example.
Testing: Use with caution
If you are using it as a 'vanilla' installation, that is, without a lot of customizations, you can use some specs that are included with the gem to make sure your blog behaves properly.
Add this on your spec_helper, right after you require
require 'crowdblog/rspec' require 'database_cleaner'
Your are going to need DatabaseCleaner to use truncation strategies for your data. Add these lines to spec_helper.rb:
Rspec.configure do |config| config.use_transactional_fixtures = false config.before(:suite) do DatabaseCleaner.strategy = :truncation DatabaseCleaner.clean_with(:truncation) end config.before(:each) do DatabaseCleaner.start end config.after(:each) do DatabaseCleaner.clean end end
Now, create a crowdblog spec:
# # spec/integration/crowdblog_spec.rb # require 'spec_helper' describe "Crowdblog" do it_behaves_like "a crowdblog" end
And run your specs. It should test Crowdblog properly.
