-First, you need to instantiate a Sequel database object. Sequel has lots of great docs, but for mysql it looks like this:
+All you have to do is supply Friendly with some information about your database:
- $db = Sequel.connect "mysql://user@server/db_name"
+ Friendly.configure :adapter => "mysql",
+ :host => "localhost",
+ :user => "root",
+ :password => "swordfish",
+ :database => "friendly_development"
-Then, setup the friendly datastore object:
+Now, you're ready to rock.
- Friendly.datastore =$db)
+If you're using rails, set friendly as a gem dependency:
-Now, you're ready to rock.
+ config.gem "friendly"
-If you're using rails, create a file called config/initializers/friendly.rb and put something like this in it:
+...and drop something like this in config/friendly.yml:
- $db = Sequel.connect "mysql://user@server/db_name"
- Friendly.datastore =$db)
+ development:
+ :adapter: "mysql"
+ :host: "localhost"
+ :user: "root"
+ :password: "swordfish"
+ :database: "friendly_development"
-Of course, you'll want to replace user@server/db_name with values that are appropriate for your system. Ultimately, you'll probably want to add a config file, so that your production environment can differ from development and so forth. I will include something like this in a future version of Friendly.
+Of course, you'll want to swap out these values for your own, fill in additional environments, and so forth.
