Best pratices

Change the cookie secret token at config/initializers/secret_token.rb

# Be sure to restart your server when you modify this file.

# Your secret key for verifying the integrity of signed cookies.
# If you change this key, all old signed cookies will become invalid!
# Make sure the secret is at least 30 characters and all random,
# no regular words or you'll be exposed to dictionary attacks.
RailStrap::Application.config.secret_token = 'YOUR-NEW-TOKEN-HERE'

Thanks pringles for the tip


RailStrap has a Vagrant file to create your own Virtual Machine for development.

To get started you need to have Vagrant and Virtal Box instaled.

After that you just need to start your VM:

vagrant up

After that you have a Ubuntu server to work, but this server isn't configured to work with rails yet! :( So i'm leaving here one virtual box image with Ruby 2.0.0 (rbenv) and Rails 4 pre-configured.

To install this server just follow this steps:

  • Download the server image here: link
  • Place the image that you downloaded in railStrap repository
  • In railStrap directory run vagrant box add railStrapMachine virtualbox
  • Run vagrant box list and this new machine should be in that list
  • Now in Vagrantfile change"precise32" to"railStrapMachine"
  • To get your machine up run vagrant up

And its done ! Your vagrant vm now has Ruby 2.0.0 and Rails 4 ready to go.
