RailStrap is a Front-end / Back-end template using HTML5 Boilerplate, Twitter Bootstrap and Ruby on Rails (3.2.x) with a powerful authentication system for building ruby on rails websites in seconds.

Quick start

Clone the git repo - git clone - or download it

Execute rake to create the users database

rake db:migrate

if you are having getting the following error: You have already activated rake, but your Gemfile requires rake 0.8.7. Using bundle exec may solve this. try this

bundle exec rake db:migrate

Now start the server in your railStrap folder

rails s

Check at http://localhost:3000


HTML5 Boilerplate

  • HTML5 ready. Use the new elements with confidence.
  • Cross-browser compatible (Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox 3.6+, IE6+).
  • Designed with progressive enhancement in mind.
  • CSS normalizations and common bug fixes.
  • IE-specific classes for easier cross-browser control.
  • A default print stylesheet, performance optimized.
  • Mobile browser optimizations.
  • Protection against any stray console.log causing JavaScript errors in IE6/7.
  • The latest jQuery via CDN, with a local fallback.
  • A custom Modernizr build for feature detection.
  • An optimized Google Analytics snippet.
  • Apache server caching, compression, and other configuration defaults for Grade-A performance.
  • Cross-domain Ajax and Flash.
  • "Delete-key friendly." Easy to strip out parts you don't need.
  • Extensive inline and accompanying documentation.

Twitter Bootstrap

  • Built for and by nerds
  • 12-column grid
  • Responsive design
  • Custom jQuery plugins
  • Cross-everything

Ruby on Rails

  • Security Authentication system
  • Users CRUD

Best pratices

Change the cookie secret token at config/initializers/secret_token.rb

# Be sure to restart your server when you modify this file.

# Your secret key for verifying the integrity of signed cookies.
# If you change this key, all old signed cookies will become invalid!
# Make sure the secret is at least 30 characters and all random,
# no regular words or you'll be exposed to dictionary attacks.
RailStrap::Application.config.secret_token = 'YOUR-NEW-TOKEN-HERE'

Thanks pringles for the tip


The branch master uses SQLITE by default. You can choose another database by changing branches. Rail Strap currently supports:


  • Include supports for redis and mongodb
  • Create a feature to remind the user password
  • Significantly reduce the amount of files from the repository, to be an extension of application and not the entire application.
