rorus

version 0.2

rorus is a command-line tool to simplify basic start/stop operations of a Ruby On Rails Unicorn Server.

rorus does not require sudo or init.d.


Summary

$ rorus [ start | status | stop ]

License

rorus is released under the GPLv3 license. THIS SOFTWARE COMES WITH ABSOLUTELY NO GUARANTEES OR WARRANTIES.


Installing

The following steps will install rorus to a Linux/UNIX system, using the directory /home/user/bin.

This guide assumes some familiarity with Linux/UNIX systems and basic programming.

Pre-installation

Before installing the rorus file, be sure the filesystem has a directory for it, and the directory is in the PATH.

  1. Make a directory in your home folder for executable scripts. For example:

$ mkdir bin

  1. Add the directory to your PATH by editing your .bashrc file (or other shell initializer). For example:

    • Add it to an existing statement:

    $ export PATH="(/any/number/of/preexisting/paths/here):/home/user/bin"

    • Or use an additional statement:

    $ export PATH="$PATH:/home/user/bin"

Installation

Add the file, change or confirm the application variables, and verify rorus is executable.

  1. Transfer the rorus file to /home/user/bin.

  2. Open the rorus file with a text editor, and change the following variable:

    • line 18: app_dir
      the root directory for the rails application
  3. With the text editor still open, verify the following default values, and make changes if needed:

    • line 19: config_file
      the config file for the unicorn server

    • line 20: pid_file
      the PID file created by the unicorn server

    • line 21: server_start_cmd
      the command used to start the unicorn server

  4. Save the rorus file.

  5. Make the rorus file executable.

$ chmod 744 rorus


Usage

To start the rails application:

$ rorus start

To show the status of an application, including process IDs for a running server:

$ rorus status

To stop a running application:

$ rorus stop


Troubleshooting

This section is still being developed in response to in-use cases.

  • /home/user/bin/rorus: bundle: not found
    • Be sure that your $PATH environment variable includes the directory for ruby and ruby gems.
    • If you are using chruby, be sure that a Ruby has been selected.

Tested with chruby, Rails 6, and Ubuntu 18.04
