@everetteallen This should now be ruby 2.0.0 compatible, though I've actually only tested it on 2.2.0.
I'd be interested to hear about your experience setting this up. How did you hear about this project? It happens that I'm actually moving just outside Apex in a couple weeks.
So was able to build out gems under 2.0.0.x on OS X and get the software up. Odd thing is the default page (see screen shot) does not show that the track is not connected even tho I have not even plugged in a USB/serial adaptor! (I am away from the track at work today).
I found the project on a routine google search since I look for a good way to do races every year.
I am a little surprised that the unplugged notice doesn't come up, but it's not just you. I confirmed that that notice comes up when it was plugged in and then gets unplugged; I'll open a new issue to address that.
We used this successfully in this year's derby on a raspberry pi. It's not speedy, but it's very workable. I would recommend using the recently-released Raspberry Pi 2 (quad core, 1G RAM) for best performance. We have an image that you might possibly use. We set it up to broadcast a "derby" ad-hoc Wi-Fi network and serve the app on http://derby.net on that local network. It worked out very well. I had considered starting a business selling preconfigured pinewood derby devices using Raspberry Pi devices. Email me if that sounds interesting to you.
Have you set an admin password? If so, the derby controls won't appear until you log in from the welcome page using the Run the Race button. Does anything at all appear on the Dashboard page after entering contestants? I would expect the initial lineup to be shown. If not, something else is wrong.
To get started without plugging in an actual track sensor, see this section of the readme for running the mock sensor: https://github.com/nilbus/pinewood-derby#running-for-testing--development.
What track sensor does your pack own?
Ok so I have no admin password set. I have attached a screen shot of the Dashboard after adding contestants... no buttons but then there is no track.
My RPi2 is in shipping and I may have it today. I would be interested in the distro you have and giving it a try with our MicroWizard K2, 3 lane track (http://www.microwizard.com/k2page.html).
On canned devices not sure how profitable the market is but will try to drop separate email.
