This is a Sinatra template starter project it now contains two templates web and api. The web is optimized to have a front end view, while that api is setup for a quick api only setup with no UI.

  • Web template includes bootstrap, JQuery, sinatra flash, http basic auth, and some base CSS/JS.
  • Api template includes https only, gem, and some other helpers for getting going

This is just basically a personal template and won't be trying to support a bunch of configurable use cases, but feel free to use it if you find it helpful

  • NR configured to work on heroku by default
  • GA ready just update views/layout.erb 'UA-XXXXX' with id
  • Foreman setup with (, Procfile.errors, Procfile) foreman start -f

To clone a project


rake clone_web project=web_example


rake clone_api project=api_example

To Run Examples Locally


cd web
foreman start
bundle exec rackup -p 3000


cd api
bundle exec rackup -p 3000


  • Provide better instructions on what to rename and redo
  • Instructions for getting running with Heroku
  • Opposed to generating a Sinatra app have the ability to generate a static site with rake file to upload to S3
  • add figaro to manage environment, add application.yml to gitignore
  • rename all pieces / files of client gem to more appropriate name
  • update better proc files based off churn-site
  • integrate free gemnasium
  • integrate NR or exception_notifier or free heroku error tracker
  • build simplecov into sinatra template from the beginning opposed to adding to projects later
