Rucksack

What is it?

Simply put, this is an collaborative organization tool, inspired by a certain other collaborative organization tool.

The key feature is that you have "Pages" which can contain any of the following content (or "widgets"):

  • Notes
  • Lists
  • Separators (or you can call them headings)
  • Files
  • Images

These pages can be edited by yourself and any other user you choose to share it to. You can also re-order and move content between pages.

In addition there are a few complimentary features, namely:

  • Reminders
  • Journals & Status (think Twitter)

What does it look like?

What about a demo?

Currently there is no demo available. However since rucksack takes mere minutes to install, who needs a demo? :)

Sounds great, how do i install it?

Firstly, make a "config/database.yml" file based off of "config/database.example.yml". If you want a quick start, you can use the file as-is since it is already set up to use a local SQLite database.

Next, you'll want to actually install the initial content. You can do this by typing in the following command:

script/setup

Next, run it either by pointing Phusion Passenger to the public folder, or run the local server, e.g.:

script/rails server

Finally, login. The default credentials are:

Username: admin
Password: password

I just upgraded and now it doesn't work!

The most likely explanation is that the database schema has been updated. You'll need to type in the following command to resolve this:

rake db:migrate

Have fun!
