Voteline

Voteline is a real-time voting application that shows voting history as a function of time.

Dependencies

Voteline was developed on Ruby v2.1 and Rails v4.1. Several gems were utilized to make development easier:

gem 'devise'
gem 'draper'
gem 'lazy_high_charts'
gem 'bootstrap-sass'
gem 'font-awesome-rails'

Installation

  1. Clone the repository.

  2. Create a /config/secrets.yml file with with your private keys for development and test. Make sure your private keys for your production environment are stored in environment variables.

    development:
      secret_key_base: 3acf07
      devise_secret_key: 3ef655
    
    test:
      secret_key_base: 6035fd
      devise_sceret_key: 8701cb
    
    production:
      secret_key_base: <%= ENV["SECRET_KEY_BASE"] %>
      devise_secret_key: <%= ENV["DEVISE_SECRET_KEY"] %>
  3. If deploying to Heroku, add your production keys to your environment variables: $ heroku config:set SECRET_KEY_BASE=1234abcd

  4. If deploying to Heroku, pick an email provider. Sendgrid is easy: $ heroku addons:add sendgrid:starter

  5. Copy the following mailer settings to your config/environment.rb file:

    ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
      :address        => 'smtp.sendgrid.net',
      :port           => '587',
      :authentication => :plain,
      :user_name      => ENV['SENDGRID_USERNAME'],
      :password       => ENV['SENDGRID_PASSWORD'],
      :domain         => 'heroku.com',
      :enable_starttls_auto => true
    }
  6. Add the sendgrid username/password details in environment variables:

    $ heroku config:set SENDGRID_USERNAME=<sendgrid_username>
    $ heroku config:set SENDGRID_PASSWORD=<sendgrid_password>
  7. Deploy. $ git push heroku master.

  • Poll admins
  • Realtime updating (websockets perhaps?)
