You should also have bundler (minimum
v1.10) to help with tracking and installing the exact gems and versions that are needed.
For development, sqlite3 will be used.
You should check out Ruby on Rails' guides if you are not familiar with the framework : http://guides.rubyonrails.org/

Once successfully completed, this setup script will:
bundlerfor managing your gem dependencies

Set environment variables
Omniauth is used to allow users to log in to the site using GitHub accounts. To use the GitHub API, you must set environment variables for the GitHub 'key' and 'secret.'
You can first obtain this key/secret through your GitHub account.
For image hosting Cloudinary is used. This service gives us the ability to host images with a heroku app. Sign up for a free coludinary account.
To tweet automatically when content is published, you can register an app on Twitter and set the keys to your environment variables. If you choose not to, don't set the variables and the app will simply skip the tweeting feature.
Now you need to set the environment variables on your server. The procedure will depend on your system.
For development, copy
.env.sample file to
.env and fill appropriately the
If using Heroku, you can set the environment variables like this:
heroku config:add GITHUB_KEY=your_key GITHUB_SECRET=your_secret \ CLOUDINARY_URL=cloudinary://your_key:your_secret \ --app Montreal.rb
Start your Web Server
You should be ready to start your webserver using:
$ bin/rails server
By default, your application is accessible at http://localhost:3000 in your browser.
RSpec is used to test the application. You can run all the tests using
or you can run a specific test file (example 1), or a single test (example 2, 17 is the line number of your test)
$ bin/rspec spec/path/to/your/file.rb # example 1 $ bin/rspec spec/path/to/your/file.rb:17 # example 2
You can also use guard to test automatically when you save a file
$ bundle exec guard
PROTIP: install ctags and guard will automatically generate an index (or tag) file of language objects found in source files that allows these items to be quickly and easily located by a text editor.
- ex: macos
brew install ctags && sudo mv /usr/bin/ctags /usr/bin/ctags.bak
- ex: ubuntu
sudo apt-get install exuberant-ctags
This application is automatically deployed to heroku after a successful Travis CI build of the master branch.
