The RailsBridge Documentation Project
This is a Sinatra app, deployed at http://docs.railsbridgeboston.org. The RailsBridge documentation project is home to a few subprojects, including the RailsBridge installfest instructions, which leads students through the various complicated setup instructions for getting Ruby, Rails, Git, etc. installed on their computer (whatever combination of computer, OS, and version they happened to bring to the workshop!), as well as the RailsBridge workshop "Suggestotron" curriculum.
Each subproject (a "site") comprises files stored under the "sites" directory; for instance, the installfest instructions are located at ROOT/sites/en/installfest, while the intro rails curriculum can be found under ROOT/sites/en/intro-to-rails. (The "en" means "English" -- see "Locales" below.)
These files can be in any of these formats:
(If multiple files exist with the same base name,
.step is preferred over
To set up your environment, run:
To run the server:
rake run fails (say, because
rerun doesn't work on your system), try:
Then open http://localhost:9292 in a web browser, and verify that you can navigate the installfest slides.
To serve sites from "sites/en", use
rake run or a vanilla deploy.
To server sites from another locale (say, "es" or Spanish)...
Run Localized Site Locally
$ SITE_LOCALE=es rake run
The server listens on
Now you have to set up subdomain mappings for the site. If you have Pow, run:
$ echo 9292 > ~/.pow/railsbridge # works for any subdomain
If you don't have Pow, add the following line to
127.0.0.1 es.railsbridge.dev # works for single subdomain
Now you can access
http://es.railsbridge.dev:9292 for debugging.
Running on a Server
Just make sure the server responds to a locale subdomain:
Note that in this mode, links are not rewritten, so if they fail you will have to manually add the parameter again.
Only organizers and invited collaborators are allowed to deploy the app.
To do so, run:
git push heroku master
