Generators{#generators}

Picky offers a few generators to have a running server and client up in 5 minutes. So you can either get started right away

or, run gem install

gem install picky-generators

and simply enter

picky generate

This will raise an Picky::Generators::NotFoundException and show you the possibilities.

The "All In One" Client/Server might be interesting for Heroku projects, as it is a bit complicated to set up two servers that interact with each other.

Servers{#generators-servers}

Currently, Picky offers two generated example projects that you can adapt to your project: Separate Client and Server (recommended) and All In One.

If this is your first time using Picky, we suggest to start out with these even if you have a project where you want to integrate Picky already.

Sinatra{#generators-servers-sinatra}

The server is generated with

picky generate server target_directory

and generates a full Sinatra server that you can try immediately. Just follow the instructions.

All In One{#generators-servers-allinone}

All In One is actually a single Sinatra server containing the Server AND the client. This server is generated with

picky generate all_in_one target_directory

and generates a full Sinatra Picky server and client in one that you can try immediately. Just follow the instructions.

Clients{#generators-clients}

Picky currently offers an example Sinatra client that you can adapt to your project (or look at it to get a feeling for how to use Picky in Rails).

Sinatra{#generators-clients-sinatra}

This client is generated with

picky generate client target_directory

and generates a full Sinatra Picky client (including Javascript etc.) that you can try immediately. Just follow the instructions.
