#Stripe Ecommerce

##Project Overview

Please create a ticket on github if you have issues. They will be addressed ASAP.

Please look at the homepage for more details. Or take a look at the github page

Stripe Ecommerce.

This is a Rails e-commerce platform. Stripe Ecommerce is a Rails 4 application with the intent to allow developers to create an ecommerce solution easily. This solution includes an Admin for Purchase Orders, Product creation, Shipments, Fulfillment and creating Orders. There is a minimal customer facing shopping cart understanding that this will be customized. The cart allows you to track your customers' cart history and includes a double entry accounting system.

The project has Solr searching, Compass and Zurb Foundation for CSS and uses jQuery. The gem list is quite large and the project still has a large wish list. In spite of that, it is currently the most complete Rails solution, and it will only get better.

Please use Ruby 2.0 and enjoy Rails 4.0.

Stripe Ecommerce is designed so that if you understand Rails you will understand Stripe_commerce. There is nothing in this project besides what you might see in a normal Rails application. If you don't like something, you are free to just change it like you would in any other Rails app.

Contributors are welcome! We will always need help with UI, documentation, and code, so feel free to pitch in. To get started, simply fork this repo, make any changes (big or small), and create a pull request.


Take a look at The Demo. This is a demo of the Ror_ecommerce project. I will try to get a version of stripe_ecommerce up and running soon. This version includes a lot of details with returns and obviously uses stripe. Financial information is also improved with stripe_ecommerce. Additionally stripe_ecommerce has the benefit of having a "coming soon" & Preorder software switch. Feel free to ask me more questions in github issues or directly via email. (my email address is connected to my github account) The login name is with a password => test123

##Getting Started

Install RVM with Ruby 2.0.0. If you have 2.0.0 on your system you're good to go. Please refer to the RVM site for more details.

Copy the database.yml for your setup. For SQLite3, cp config/database.yml.sqlite3 config/database.yml. For MySQL, cp config/database.yml.mysql config/database.yml and update your username/password.

If you are using the mysql dmg file to install mysql you will need to edit your ~/.bash_profile and include this:

export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/mysql/lib:$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH

Run rake secret and copy/paste the output as encryption_key in config/config.yml.

gem install bundler
bundle install
rake db:create:all
rake db:migrate db:seed
RAILS_ENV=test rake db:test:prepare

Once everything is set up, start the server with rails server and direct your web browser to localhost:3000/admin/overviews. Write down the username/password (these are only shown once) and follow the directions.

Environmental Variables

Most users are using Amazon S3 or Heroku. Thus we have decided to have a setup easy to get your site up and running as quickly as possible in this production environment. Hence you should add the following ENV variables:

FOG_DIRECTORY     => your bucket on AWS
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID => your access key on AWS
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID => your secret key on AWS

On linux:

export FOG_DIRECTORY=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

On Heroku:

heroku config:add FOG_DIRECTORY=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
heroku config:add AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
heroku config:add AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

heroku labs:enable user-env-compile -a myapp


Install redis

$ wget
$ tar xzf redis-2.6.12.tar.gz
$ cd redis-2.6.12
$ make


$ curl -O
$ tar xzf redis-2.6.12.tar.gz
$ cd redis-2.6.12
$ make

or with homebrew $ brew install redis

add redis to your PATH (NOTE: if you installed via homebrew, it will already be in your PATH):

 export PATH="/Users/drhenner/redis-2.6.12/src:/usr/lib/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/local/git/bin:/usr/local/heroku/bin:$PATH"

##Easy development setup


Install memcached: You can install from source, or via homebrew

$ brew install memcached

The .env file should look like:


Ask the project manager for the values to fill in xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Processes are managed by the foreman gem.

* First, copy the to
* Then Make any specific local machine changes (executable paths, ports, etc)
* then do $ foreman start -f

##ImageMagick and rMagick on OS X 10.8

If installing rMagick on OS X 10.8 and using Homebrew to install ImageMagick, you will need to symlink across some files or rMagick will not be able to build.

Do the following in the case of a Homebrew installed ImageMagick(and homebrew had issues):

* cd /usr/local/Cellar/imagemagick/6.8.0-10/lib
* ln -s libMagick++-Q16.7.dylib   libMagick++.dylib
* ln -s libMagickCore-Q16.7.dylib libMagickCore.dylib
* ln -s libMagickWand-Q16.7.dylib libMagickWand.dylib


If you would like to read the docs, you can generate them with the following command:

yardoc --no-private --protected app/models/*.rb

####Payment Gateways

First, create config/settings.yml and change the encryption key and paypal/ information. You can also change config/settings.yml.example to config/settings.yml until you get your real info.


Paperclip will throw errors if not configured correctly. You will need to find out where Imagemagick is installed. Type: which identify in the terminal and set


equal to that path in config/paperclip.rb.



Paperclip.options[:command_path] = "/usr/local/bin"


Paperclip.options[:command_path] = "/usr/bin"

##Adding Dalli For Cache and the Session Store

While optional, for a speedy site, using memcached is a good idea.

Install memcached. If you're on a Mac, the easiest way to install Memcached is to use homebrew:

brew install memcached

memcached -vv

##Resque admin

Resque admin is accessible at /resque.

To run ensure that resque jobs run locally use foreman to start the server.
