I built FlatCollab for my fellow students at the Flatiron School - we have a number of group projects as part of the curriculum, but since we online students are scattered across different countries, time zones, and schedules, it's not always easy to find partners.
FlatCollab is a Rails app that aims to address this by providing a sort of virtual bulletin board, where students can sign up through Github or with an email address and post about the project they'd like to find a partner for. Once a student chooses a partner, the two of them get access to a versatile task list for the project, with the ability to divide up the work involved and decide who's going to do what.
Hopefully, the process of finding a partner and working on a project together will be a little easier.
Clone the repository and run
bundle install to install the required gems and dependencies,
rake db:create to create the database, then
rake db:migrate to run the migrations. Run
rspec to run the test suite.
To see a local version of the app, run
rails server, then navigate to
localhost:3000 in your browser. Make your changes in
flat-collab/app and refresh the page to see them in action.
