Feel free to clone and use this for building a similar site for your own city! The code should run on pretty much any Ruby 1.9.x environment - hamburg.io is hosted on Heroku.
The code assumes the following environment variables to be set:
MONGO_URL- the connection URLs to your MongoDB database. (Heroku will set these variables for you if you're using one of the available MongoDB addons.)
TWITTER_SECRET- used for authenticating against Twitter. You'll get these by creating a Twitter API application at dev.twitter.com.
NEW_RELIC_LOG- Heroku will set these automatically once you add the New Relic addon to your app.
