Lila Shell is a simple chat app that serves as an example of using roda-message_bus.
A demo site is available at http://lilashell-demo.jeremyevans.net
The server is written in Ruby, so the first step is installing Ruby.
After installing Ruby, install the dependencies:
gem install -g Gemfile
The server requires a PostgreSQL backend. It's recommended you set up an application specific server and database, and you can use the bootstrap rake task to do that (be sure to read it first to see what it does):
You need to set the following enviroment variables:
LILA_SHELL_DATABASE_URL :: PostgreSQL database connection URL LILA_SHELL_SESSION_ECRET :: session secret, >=64 bytes
One way to set this is to create a .env.rb file in the root of the repository containing:
ENV['LILA_SHELL_DATABASE_URL'] ||= 'postgres:///?user=lila_shell&password=...' ENV['LILA_SHELL_SESSION_SECRET'] ||= '...'
You can then run the server (via unicorn or another rack-compatible webserver):
You can run all test suites using the default rake task:
For the web tests, you need to setup a test database, but the bootstrap task described in the Setup section takes care of that.
