GeminaboxPlus is a ready-to-go application for Geminabox (https://github.com/cwninja/geminabox) installs. ==== WHY? ==== Reindexing tasks are handled by Resque offline so you don't have to wait around for your browser to timeout on hosts with a lot of gems. ==== REQUIREMENTS ==== The requirements are a running Redis installation with a special key in the default database, and two (optional) environment variables: REDIS_HOST: (defaults to localhost) GEMINABOX_DATA: (defaults to /var/www/data) Redis::Directory (https://github.com/wiecklabs/redis_directory) is used to organize your Redis connection. You'll need to add the following key to database 0 on your redis install: redis-cli -h redis.example.com -n 0 hset services resque '["redis.example.com"]' The value can be a cluster of other Redis servers, allowing you to organize your Redis clusters and load-balance if necessary. ie: redis-cli -h redis.example.com -n 0 hset services \ resque '["redis1.example.com:9200", "redis2.example.com:9201"]' Once that's done just start up your server. ==== EXAMPLE WEBSERVER ==== I use JRuby 1.7 (HEAD) on OpenJDK 7u2 running the following: rack (1.3.6) jruby-rack (1.1.1) trinidad (1.2.3) I left them out of the Gemfile (and use system gems for these) so you can choose your own application-server (or run under MRI) If you want to run my setup (it's fast, I recommend it!) then just start the server up with: jruby -S trinidad ==== 2-MINUTE SETUP ==== Assuming you have Homebrew (https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew) on OSX and a JRuby installation, here's how you'd quickly get GeminaboxPlus running on localhost: brew install redis redis-cli hset services resque '["localhost"]' jgem install rack -v1.3.6 jgem install jruby-rack -v1.1.1 jgem install trinidad -v1.2.3 git clone git://github.com/sam/geminaboxplus.git cd geminaboxplus bundle install --path vendor QUEUE=reindex bundle exec rake resque:work & GEMINABOX_DATA="$(pwd)/data" jruby -S trinidad Now just copy your .gem files into $GEMINABOX_DATA/gems and run: curl http://localhost:9292/reindex To get all your gems loaded. The web side of the app itself isn't the fastest if you have a lot of gems (ours takes 8s to load ~2400 gems) but that only matters if you're hunting for a specific Gem in the list. The gem indexes should be fast once generated so there'll be no slowing down your workflow!
