Suspenders is the base Rails application used at thoughtbot.

Suspenders boy

Installation

First install the suspenders gem:

gem install suspenders

Then run:

suspenders projectname

This will create a Rails 3.1 app in `projectname'. This script creates a new new git repository. It is not meant to be used against an existing repo.

Gemfile

To see the latest and greatest gems, look at Suspenders' template/Gemfile_additions, which will be appended to the default generated projectname/Gemfile.

It includes application gems like:

And testing gems like:

Other goodies

Suspenders also comes with:

  • jQuery for Javascript pleasantry
  • Rails' flashes set up and in application layout.
  • A few nice time formats.

Heroku

You can optionally create Heroku staging and production apps:

suspenders app --heroku true

This has the same effect as running:

heroku create app-staging --remote staging --stack cedar
heroku create app-production --remote production --stack cedar

Clearance

You can optionally not include Clearance:

suspenders app --clearance false

Dependencies

Some gems included in Suspenders have native extensions. You should have GCC installed on your machine before generating an app with Suspenders.

If you're running OS X, we recommend the GCC OSX installer.

We use Capybara Webkit for full-stack Javascript integration testing. It requires you have QT installed on your machine before running Suspenders.

Instructions for installing QT on most systems are available here.
