Tech Books Deals of the Day
This is the source code that runs http://techbooksdotd.herokuapp.com. It's written in Ruby and runs on Sinatra, using Haml for the views. It's pretty simple--look at
techbooksdotd.rb for all controller logic.
You must have Ruby 2.x (last tested using Ruby 2.1.1) and Bundler installed on your machine.
Clone the repo to your local machine. Change to that directory and run:
After Bundler does its work, run:
rackup -p 4567
Now, open a browser to http://localhost:4567 to see the app.
Thanks to Vance (https://github.com/aroc725) for adding Peachpit. This code also was repurposed for InformIT to display the InformIT book's cover instead of the InformIT logo. Also thanks to him for staying on top of various website idiosyncrasies.
