This skeleton uses the followin libraries:
Compass for fast layout development
RSpec for testing
Extlib (with monkey-lib) for sane ruby extensions
Alternate directory structure
Instead of the usual app/ structure known from Rails, Merb or other Monk skeletons, this project uses a different project structure:
for controllers/helpers: routes/ for views: views/ for models: lib/project/
Models should be written in a way to be reusable and viewed as a stand-alone library (hence them being in lib)
This skeleton can be used with monk, priest or as stand-alone. It does not depend in any way on monk, but plays well with it.
Run this to create a new project called example_project:
git clone git://github.com/rkh/gerippe.git example_path cd example_path bin/project rename example_project
If you have dependency issues, you can install those either as git submodules:
Or globally as gems:
There after you'll be able to create routes and such:
bin/example_project create route pages page/:name
monk add gerippe git://github.com/rkh/gerippe.git monk init example_path -s gerippe cd example_path dep vendor --all monk create route pages page/:name
Priest is an extended monk version (github.com/rkh/priest).
priest add gerippe git://github.com/rkh/gerippe.git priest init example_path -s gerippe --keep-remote cd example_path rake vendor:install:submodules priest create route pages page/:name
Note: You can also add –keep-remote to the “priest add” line, so it will be default option for every “priest init” of gerippe. However, this will cause the gerippe skeleton entry to be unusable from the original monk command line tool, as monk and priest share the same config file. Future versions of monk will be able to cope with priest's extended config entries. If you just use priest this should not cause any problems.
Custom Monk tasks
monk name # displayes the projects name, currently Project monk rename NAME # changes the projects name to NAME monk create TYPE NAME [ARGS] # generate routes and such monk types # lists types available for monk create
Note: “monk” can be replaced with “priest” or “bin/PROJECT_NAME”
Create forks for different ORMs.
