What is it?!
A buzzword EXTRAVAGANZA!
MongoMapper (on or off MongoHQ)
Sass (through Compass)
Environment-aware Configuration Management
Most config is in config/harmony.yml
You'll want to create a free account on MongoHQ.com, a free account on SendGrid.com, and a free account on Chargify.com. For Chargify, make sure you enable API Access.
Install it. Use it. You'll be happy. The .rvmrc file in the repo will tell RVM to switch to Ruby 1.9.2 when you `cd` in
It works. Use it. RVM can be used to install: ruby-1.9.2-p0
What can I say? I'm a fanboy. If you want to run your own server, then you can figure out the config. If you don't want to deal with that, check out the free accounts on MongoHQ.com. On my laptop over wifi connecting to a free DB in MongoHQ, I had /users/sign_in response times of ~300ms. When I turned on safe mode on the User model, that went up to 400ms. Fine by me. (Safe mode stayed on by default, btw).
Check out config/initializers/mongodb.rb
VERY impressed with Devise. Everything “just works.” Very sensible defaults.
Check out config/initializers/devise.rb
200 emails a day for free. Perfect for testing. 1/1000th of a cent per email ($10/mo for 10k emails) is a good deal.
I hooked it up to Devise in config/initializers/sendgrid.rb
The level of IMPRESSED I was at Devise doesn't hold a candle to Chargify. These guys know what the hell they are doing.
Go create an account. www.chargify.com. If you've used PayPal, your JAW WILL DROP when you see how awesome their API is implemented and documented.
I pulled a config thing from an @jnunemaker gist somewhere and @angilly-ified it.
config/harmony.yml & lib/harmony.rb
Sass through Compass
If you still writing raw CSS: QUIT IT. Use Sass. It no understatement that it CHANGE YOU LIFE.
Do what you want with this. Clone it. Fork it. Create issues. Whatever.
