Build Status Stories in Ready

mBuilder

mBuilder is an ideal tool if you need to build flexible SMS apps and don’t want to spend lots of time building something custom from scratch.

Architecture

mBuilder is a Ruby on Rails application. It uses/depends on:

  • ruby (= 2.0.0-p353) specified in .ruby-version
  • rails (~> 3.2.17)
  • mysql for storing applications logic
  • delayed_job for running periodic tasks
  • elasticsearch (>= 1.1) for storing application data
  • nuntium for sending/receving sms messages. more
  • guisso (optional) in order to integrate with InSTEDD's Single Sign-On. more
  • resourcemap (optional) in order to read/write data to resourcemap collections. more

Setup

  1. Checkout
  2. Setup rails project as usual. $ bundle && rails db:create db:schema:load
  3. Configure Nuntium (optional).
  4. Configure Guisso

Configure Nuntium (optional for dev)

A config/nuntium.yml already exists that uses a development account binding to nuntium.instedd.org . Usually this is enough for developping/testing mBuilder in an isolated scenario.

If you want to use a nuntium gateway to send/receive real SMS you will need to setup a nuntium application with a public mbuilder hostname. Or host your own Nuntium server.

Configure Guisso

Guisso, Use InSTEDD Single Sign-On

A config/guisso.yml needs to be create. InSTEDD applications aim to work with a Single Sign-On servise at http://login.instedd.org . A guisso.yml can be downloaded after an application is configured at the Single Sign-On server.

The most common scenario for development is to setup an application with hostname local.instedd.org:3000 and add the entry 127.0.0.1 local.instedd.org to your /etc/hosts. This will allow cookies at *.instedd.org to be shared between login and mBuilder.

Yet mBuilder can be hosted with any hostname.

Use local stored users

All InSTEDD application are also able to run isolated from a login server. In this mode users are managed by devise

Development

Docker development

docker-compose.yml file build a development environment mounting the current folder and running rails in development environment.

Run the following commands to have a stable development environment.

$ docker-compose run --rm --no-deps web bundle install
$ docker-compose up -d db
$ docker-compose run --rm web rake db:setup
$ docker-compose up

To setup and run test, once the web container is running:

$ docker-compose exec web bash
root@web_1 $ rake

Deploy

powered by capistrano. $ HOSTS=<server> cap deploy.

Configuration files are symlinked in a shared path. check symlink_configs task.
