Setup instructions

Api is run through Ruby on Rails app. The Angular app is hosted on Bitballon here:, as gh-pages does not support node modules. The API is in a Rails app that is deployed on Heroku here:


BandsInTown API used to seed database with 1000 unique concerts sorted by soonest date. We chose to pre-seed the database with API data so that users would be allowed to submit new events. Google Maps API to render maps with venue locations Rails version 5.0 Two factories: Concert and Comment $state, $stateParams, $scope, $location

Ruby on Rails gems

  • httparty - used to convert API data from its url
  • figaro - used to conceal API key information
  • rack-cors - used to allow for cross-origin-resource-sharing between the rails and angular portions of the application
