Submitting an Issue
We use the [GitHub issue tracker](http://github.com/dannymcc/BaseApp2/issues) to track bugs and
features. Before submitting a bug report or feature request, check to make sure it hasn’t already
been submitted. You can indicate support for an existing issuse by voting it up. When submitting a
bug report, please include a [Gist](http://gist.github.com/) that includes a stack trace and any
details that may be necessary to reproduce the bug, including your gem version, Ruby version, and
operating system. Ideally, a bug report should include a pull request with failing specs.

Configatron vs. Settings
Previously, site settings were stored in the database. Now, you have two options for storing configuration settings.
1. Configatron config/config.yml
All default configuration options that are not ‘user changeable’ should go in config/config.yml. This uses the Configatron gem (frozen in vendor/gems).
To retrieve the site name you may use ‘configatron.site_name’ everywhere in your code.
2. Settings in database
It’s still possible to store user changeable settings in the database model Setting.
Note: As long as there are no Settings in the database, the ‘Settings’ tab for the administrator is hidden. Once you add a Setting to the database through a migration (or otherwise), the Settings tab will show up.
1. At the command prompt:
- bundle install
- rake db:migrate
- rails s
2. Go to http://localhost:3000/
3. Administration username and password are as follows:
