A simple Sinatra starting point
Sinatra Bootstrap supports:
What is the purpose of Sinatra Bootstrap?
How do I get started?
First we need to clone Sinatra Bootstrap and run Bundler to get the required gems installed.
If you don't have Bundler installed, run the following at the command prompt:
gem install bundler
To get started with using Sinatra Bootstrap, fork the repo and pull down a copy from your fork to your local machine. It makes sense to store this where you store your other codes, for example:
cd Code/path/to/codes git clone email@example.com:USERNAME/sinatra-bootstrap.git
From inside the root of your newly cloned repo, run the following at the command prompt:
How do I start the application?
After you've ran
bundle install and Sinatra as well as the other required gems are installed, start it up by running this command:
# runs `bundle exec shotgun config.ru` behind the scenes rake start
This will start Sinatra Bootstrap on Sinatra's default port 9393 and will now be able to view the application in your web browser at this URL http://localhost:9393.
You'll also want to open a new terminal window to the same directory and run the Compass watch rake task so we can monitor our Sass files for changes.
Or you just run
compass watch, either work.
Helper Rake Tasks
There are a few helper Rake tasks that will help you to clear and compile your Sass stylesheets as well as a few other helpful tasks. There is also a generate task, so you can generate a new project at a defined location based on the bootstrap.
rake -T rake generate # Generate a new project at dir=foo rake start # Start the application rake styles:clear # Clear the styles rake styles:compile # Compile new styles rake styles:compile:production # Compile new styles for production rake styles:list # List the styles rake styles:stats # Run compass stats rake styles:stats:log # Create a log of compass stats rake styles:watch # Watch the styles and compile new changes
