This is a Rails 3.1 app that is deployed to Heroku. Get the app running on your box with:

rails server

Done! There's no database requirement (in fact, ActiveRecord is not loaded at all!) so setup should go smoothly.

Linux Could not find a JavaScript runtime.
for a list of available runtimes.

To fix this error either install node.js (with: sudo apt-get nodejs)


Include 'therubyracer' in your Gemfile.
