Spree is a complete open source commerce solution for Ruby on Rails. It was developed by Sean Schofield under the original name of Rails Cart before changing its name to Spree.


Running from sources (latest and greatest features)

  1. Clone the git repo

    git clone git:// spree
  2. Create the necessary config/database.yml file

  3. Install the gem dependencies

    rake gems:install
  4. Bootstrap the database (run the migrations, create admin account, optionally load sample data.)

    rake db:bootstrap
  5. Start the server


Running the Gem

  1. Install spree Gem

    sudo gem install spree

    NOTE: This may take a while. The gem currently includes a frozen version of Rails 2.0.2

  2. Create Spree Application

    spree <app_name>
  3. Create your database and edit the config/database.yml to taste.

    rake db:create

    You can skip this step if using sqlite3 as your database.

  4. Bootstrap

    cd <app-name>
    rake db:bootstrap
  5. Launch Application
