This is a platform to plan co-created events. It was originally created for Urban Burn Stockholm in 2016 and was then used for The Borderland in 2016 and For Midburnerot 2016. It's being continuously and sporadically developed by a rag-tag team and will probably always be in beta. This version was the adoption of the Midburnerot - Israeli regional winter event. You can see it in action here: http://dreams.midburnerot.com and the original system here: http://dreams.theborderland.se/
To get started
- Install ruby 2.3.1 (or any ruby will probably work).
- Install postgres -
brew install postgresql
- Install imagemagick -
brew install imagemagick
gem install bundler # if needed bundle install bundle exec rake db:migrate
To get all the deps and the database set up properly. To start the server:
bundle exec rails s
Now rails will listen at
localhost:3000 for your requests.
dreams/new to create a new dream and to
/dreams to see a list of camps.
There are tests
Run them with:
bundle exec rspec spec
Currently sqlite is used as the local database. We will stick to this in development but set up Postgres in production. Install sqlite with your favourite package manager and you should be up and running right away.
In development mode mailcatcher is configured to catch emails locally for easier testing.
Users and creations can be administrated with Active Admin. After install, run:
bundle exec rake db:migrate bundle exec rake db:seed
Then naviagte to
Creating your first user
- Navigate to http://localhost:3000/admin/tickets/new
- Enter your phone number and email
- Then create your user with the same phone number and email here: http://localhost:3000/users/sign_up
Ticket ID Import
Ticket ids are imported from a two column csv file of IDs which can be set to any url using
IMPORT_CSV_URL env variable
Rake task is in lib/tasks/import.rake and is run with "bundle exec rake import"
Ticket verifier through TixWise
We've added an optional verification through tixwise - you need to aquire an API from them and then set
TICKETS_EVENT_URL ENV variable to a url such as:
Make sure you change the username, password, token and event id
After any schema changes make sure you run
heroku run rake db:migrate --app=YOUR_APP
Then you might need to restart the instance with
heroku run restart --app=YOUR_APP
To get the mailing system working on Heroku -
- Add Sendgrid as a Resource (this will automatically set SENDGRID_USERNAME & SENDGRID_PASSWORD)
- Update the email from using:
heroku config:set EMAIL_FROMemail@example.com
To set up the image upload make sure to create the S3 user and set the following heroku env variables
From our experience, if the s3 bucket didn't exist - it was automatically created on first time upload in case your user have write access to s3.
Each year we have new dreams.
We need to update each year by setting the
default_event parameter in the
If you just integrated the events be sure to run
heroku run rails console --app=YOUR_APP
Then set all events to your event - for example for midburnerot2016 we call
Camp.all.each do |camp| camp.update(event_id:'midburnerot2016') end
