Lobsters Rails Project
This is a slightly-modified version of the source code to the site operating at https://lobste.rs. It has been modified to make it easier to set up for the purposes of the Keep Rails Upgraded workshop being held at RailsConf 2016.
Most notably, the dependencies have been simplified and the application has been updated to run on and require Ruby 2.2+. Site search will not function with our simplified dependencies, but that is not necessary for our workshop.
Getting Set Up
Prior to the workshop, you should:
- Have Ruby 2.3 installed
- Clone this repository locally with:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org/derekprior/lobsters
- From the
- Verify the test suite passes with
bundle exec rake
If you have trouble setting the application up or you find any of this confusing, please open an issue with as much detail as possible including any stack traces and error messages.
