Sinatra Bootstrap

A simple Sinatra starting point

Sinatra Bootstrap supports:

What is the purpose of Sinatra Bootstrap?

I created Sinatra Bootstrap in order to have a consistent starting point for my Sinatra projects. I like having Haml, Sass and Compass available to me in every project, likewise jQuery and a few JavaScripts make their way into every production as well. I also include a number of helpful rake tasks. Also, because we compile our

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 git@github.com:USERNAME/sinatra-bootstrap.git

From inside the root of your newly cloned repo, run the following at the command prompt:

bundle install

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.

rake styles:watch

Or you just run compass watch, either work.

Helper Rake Tasks

There are a few helper Rake tasks that will aid you in clearing and compiling your Sass/Compass stylesheets. There is also a task to generate a new project at a specified directory so you can keep your copy of the Serve Bootstrap pristine.

rake -T

rake generate                   # Generate a new project at dir=foo
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
