Introduction

mvpkit is a tool for quickly building prototypes and rapid ideation. This stack is built entirely for speed of development.

If you are looking for a landing page tool, there are plenty of them out there.

It combines two fast (and not necessarily long term) web technologies to test your ideas and (in)validate them quickly.

Heroku

To setup deployment for heroku, first create the project:

heroku create PROJECT

Then setup the stack:

heroku addons:create heroku-postgresql
heroku buildpacks:set heroku/ruby
heroku buildpacks:add --index 1 heroku/nodejs

And deploy:

git push heroku master

Extras

Google Sitemaps

If SEO matters to you, you'll want to turn on google sitemap generation.

Setup

Edit config/sitemap.rb with your own custom routes.

Updating

Run rake sitemap:refresh in production to update Bing/Google with changes to the sitemap.

Scheduling

Put this in a cron task or in Heroku Scheduler.

rake sitemap:worker

If you're on heroku:

heroku addons:create scheduler:standard
heroku addons:open scheduler

And add the following task: rake sitemap:worker. Your choice on the frequency but I usually use daily

SEO

Meta Properties

All meta fields are controlled via the page object. Set attributes on this in order to get meta properties populated. This is best done at the controller level.

Available Properties

Property Description Inheritance
page.title
page.description
page.author
page.og_url
page.og_type
page.og_title page.title
page.og_description page.description
page.og_image
page.twitter_card

Helpers

Geolocation

By default, Geolocation of the session will automatically happen.

You can access the session's geolocation in request.location.

To test geolocation locally, set SPOOF_IP=true in your .env.

For more info see Geocoder.

Bootstrap

row_groups_of

Makes a series of row/col div elements based in group count.

<% row_groups_of(3, [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]) do |i| %>
  <div class="panel panel-default">
    <div class="panel-heading">
      <h2 class="text-center"><%= i %></h2>
    </div>
  </div>
<% end %>
