Working with the edge source (latest and greatest features)
The source code is essentially a collection of gems. Spree is meant to be run within the context of Rails application. You can easily create a sandbox application inside of your cloned source directory for testing purposes.
Clone the git repo
git clone git://github.com/railsdog/spree.git spree cd spree
Install the gem dependencies
Create a sanbox rails application for testing purposes
rails new sandbox -T -m sandbox_template.rb cd sandbox
Sync the migrations and other assets in your new sandbox app
Bootstrap the database (run the migrations, create admin account, optionally load sample data.)
Prepare the test database (optional - only if you're going to run the tests)
Start the server
Once you have the edge source working (see above) you can run the tests as follows
Change to the directory containing the engine/gem to test
Run the tests
