- Arbitrary return objects
Get whatever you want back. IDs, URLs, image links, HTML,
- Loads data

See the Soulheart intro page for a step-by-step explanation of setting up a select box that uses Soulheart as a remote data source.
You can instantly deploy Soulheart to Heroku for free! This requires a verified Heroku account—you will have to add a payment method to Heroku but you won't be charged.
To update your Heroku deploy of Soulheart, use the Heroku CLI and redeploy the app:
heroku deploy -a NAME_OF_YOUR_APP_ON_HEROKU
In a Rails app
Soulheart is a gem. It uses hiredis on Ruby MRI. Add these lines to your gemfile:
gem 'soulheart' gem 'hiredis', '~> 0.6.0' # Skip using JRuby gem 'redis', '>= 3.2.0', require: ['redis', 'redis/connection/hiredis'] # Skip if using JRuby
And add this in your routes.rb:
require 'soulheart/server' Rails.application.routes.draw do # .... your application routes mount Soulheart::Server => '/soulhearts' end
You can then access the server when your rails app is running. You can run the Soulheart commands from that directory.
Hote: On Heroku Soulheart uses
rackup to start the server. Because of this, there's a
Gemfile.lock and a
app.json—to make it (and any forks of it) directly deployable. These files aren't in the Gem.
Setting redis url
You can also set the redis url.
# config/initializers/soulheart.rb Soulheart.redis = 'redis://127.0.0.1:6379/0' # or you can asign an existing instance of Redis, Redis::Namespace, etc. # Soulheart.redis = $redis
Tested with rspec. Check out test information at Code Climate.
You can run
bundle exec guard to watch for changes and rerun the tests when files are saved.
Soulheart is a Redis backed Sinatra server. It's tested with the latest MRI (2.2, 2.1, 2.0) and JRuby versions (1.7). Other versions/VMs are untested but might work fine.
It requires Redis >= 3.0
This initially started as a fork of Soulmate to support the features listed, provide demos and make it instantly deployable to Heroku.
It's MIT licensed.
