Burger Finder

A CLI application to help you find the best burger joints in the Baltimore area. Yum!



I like burgers. And I like to know where the best ones are in my area at all times. So, I build an application to do that.

Welcome to your new gem! In this directory, you'll find the files you need to be able to package up your Ruby library into a gem. Put your Ruby code in the file lib/burger_finder. To experiment with that code, run bin/console for an interactive prompt.

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'burger_finder'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install burger_finder


To start the program run:

ruby bin/start




After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
