To see the available commands: >> crowd --help # Edit the configuration files to your satisfaction, add AWS credentials, # and then load the CloudCrowd schema into your configured database. >> mate ~/config/cloud-crowd/config.yml >> mate ~/config/cloud-crowd/database.yml >> crowd load_schema # Write your actions, and install them into the 'actions' subdirectory. # CloudCrowd comes with some default actions as an example. # To launch the central server (make sure that you include its location # in config.yml), either: >> crowd server # or: >> thin -R config.ru --servers 3 -e production start # Any server that supports Rack should work with the rackup file. # Then, to spin up 10 workers: >> crowd workers start -n 10 # To spin up workers remotely, install the 'cloud-crowd' gem, and copy over # your configuration directory. # At this point you can visit your server console at localhost:9173 to # view all of your workers, ready for action.
