To install Publify you need the following:
- Ruby 1.9.3 or 2.0
- Ruby On Rails 3.2.16
- A database engine, MySQL, PgSQL or SQLite3
- Unzip Publify archive
- Rename database.yml.yourEngine as database.yml
- Edit database.yml to add your database name, login and password.
$ bundle install $ rake db:create $ rake db:migrate $ rake db:seed $ ./script/rails server
You can now launch you browser and access to 127.0.0.1:3000.
In order to install Publify on Heroku, you’ll need to do some minor tweaks.
Just add the Heroku Postgres plugin to your app. When deploying, Heroku will write the database configuration so you don’t have to do anything.
You need to setup Amazon s3 storage to be able to upload files on your blog. Set heroku config vars.
$ heroku config:set provider=AWS \ aws_access_key_id=YOUR_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID \ aws_secret_access_key=YOUR_AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY \ aws_bucket=YOUR_AWS_BUCKET_NAME
Replace the default
cp Gemfile Gemfile.heroku.
Heroku may also need the Ruby version to be declared. You may add
ruby "1.9.3" after the source to use the latest Ruby version.
Heroku will also boot your app on Webrick, the default Ruby web server, which is rather slow. Just add thin to get some free speed.
Heroku needs Gemfile.lock to be in the Git repository. Remove
Gemfile.lock from .gitignore and add it
git add .gitignore
