You visited a Rails Girls Workshop and now want to join a project group to really learn the way of the code? Or maybe you recently coached at a workshop and now want to do it on a regular basis! If that's the case, this little app is just the one for you!
An overview of who meets when, where, with whom to work on what.
We've had lots of people asking us if this project is open for all to work on and if they can contribute even though they are a) not women, b) not in our project group, c) don't know us, d) some other reason. The answer is of course yes! We are not a closed group and we welcome your PRs. All we ask is that you communicate with us regularly, make clean PRs, test your work, and be nice. If you write some crazy code, explanations are helpful so that we can learn from what you've done and become better coders ourselves in the process. If you have a great idea for a feature & want to implement it, please open an issue, assign yourself to it, and hack away :)
Code of Conduct
Just some general information:
Ruby version 2.0+
Rails version 4.1
Make sure you have ImageMagick installed.
In Terminal run (OS X):
brew install imagemagick
Or for Linux run (or with the package manager of your choice):
sudo apt-get install imagemagick
Get the code
Get the code from this repo
git clone email@example.com:rubycorns/rorganize.it.git
Get all the secrets:
cp config/secrets.yml.sample config/secrets.yml
Install all the gems
Spice up the database
bundle exec rake db:migrate
Note: if running the migrations alters the schema.db file with changes such as unneccessary linebreaks and spaces, and you have not created any of your own migrations to specifically modify it, it's best not to commit the schema file. You can delete the modified file from your local copy by running
git checkout db/schema.rb
Get some data
bundle exec rake db:seed
Run the server
bundle exec rails s
Run all the tests
bundle exec rspec
Note: you will need permission from rubycorns in order to push your branches to this repository. Until you have been granted permission, please fork this repository, and create a branch from your fork.
Create new branch (you should be in the directory of the project)
git branch Name_of_your_branch
Switch to the newly created branch (the same if you need to change to the branch that already exist)
git checkout Name_of_your_branch
Or for lazy people like Tobi (does both steps at the same time):
git checkout -b Name_of_your_branch
Push the new branch to the repository (with some commits or just "bare" branch)
git push --set-upstream origin Name_of_your_branch
Delete local branch
git branch -D Name_of_your_branch
Git: commit your changes
Make changes, then
git add -A
Tell the others what you did
git commit -m "description of changes"
Off to GitHub
Make a pull request
- Select your branch on GitHub.
- Click 'Pull Request'.
- Write a little summary of what you did and alert people if you need help. before merging.
- When you merge and close your branch, please make sure to include a ridiculous gif.
To deploy, run:
git push production master
this will push the current version of the master branch from your local repository to production, run bundler and precompile the assets if necessary, and restart the server.
To set this up, first make that you have ssh access to the production server. If this command works, then you have ssh access. If not, ask someone of the Rubycorns to give you access.
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org echo itworks
Then in your local repository, add a git remote for production:
git remote add production email@example.com:rorganize.it
That should be it.
In case this doesn't work though, ssh into server and try to restart the daemontools service:
svc -t ~/service/autostart
If the app is not working, there might be an error on startup (e.g. a
missing gem), and daemontools tries to start it again and again. Check
ps fuxwww if the pid of the thin server constantly
changes. If that is the case, try to stop the service with
svc -u ~/service/autostart
then start it manually to see the errors on the console, with
or follow the contents of that file to see what it is actually doing. Once fixed, run
svc -u ~/service/autostart
to start the service in regular mode again. See https://wiki.uberspace.de/system:daemontools for more info (in german).
