Rust Shell

README.md

Meal, Ready-to-Eat: A Web framework for the Rust Programming Language, built with Mongrel2 and Elasticsearch.

Installation

Install for users of MRE:

% cargo install mre

Install for developers:

% git clone https://github.com/erickt/mre
% cd mre
% make deps
% make

% If you want to run the tests
% make test && ./mre

Running the Examples

First, make sure Mongrel2 is installed. Next, initialize and start Mongrel2:

% cd examples/helloworld
% m2sh load --db config.sqlite --config mongrel2.conf
% m2sh start -host localhost

In another shell, build and run the Hello World example:

% make example-helloworld
% cd ./examples/helloworld && ./helloworld

The Hello Everyone example needs a little more setup before it can run. It uses Elasticsearch, so follow these instructions to get ES running. Then, create the example's index:

% ./examples/helloeveryone/create-index

Start up Mongrel2:

% cd examples/helloeveryone
% m2sh load --db config.sqlite --config mongrel2.conf
% m2sh start -host localhost

And in a separate shell, build and run the example:

% make example-helloeveryone
% cd examples/helloeveryone && ./helloeveryone

The Blog example is built the same way, just replace helloeveryone with blog.
