OVERVIEW

Github High Scores is a fun way to rank Github repository contributors in a 8-bit, 80's-tastic viewing environment.

Installation

git clone git://github.com/leereilly/github-high-scores.git
rvm install ruby-1.8.7-p334 ## didn't have correct version
cd github-high-scores
gem install bundler
bundle
db_use=sqlite_default ruby app.rb

Configuration

You can either use mysql, sqlite or sqlite with default setting

For mysql:

You'll need to set environment variables on your box. Locally, you can set them in your .bash_profile...

export db_use=mysql
export db_user=some_username
export db_pass=some_password
export db_host=some_host
export db_data=some_database

On Heroku, you can do something like this...

heroku config:add db_user=XXX db_pass=XXX db_host=XXX db_data=XXX db_use=mysql

For sqlite:

export db_use=sqlite
export db_path=/some/absolute/path/to/my.db

For sqlite + default:

export db_use=sqlite_default

This then creates a my.db database file in db/

See app.rb for details.

Contribute

Fork + pull.
