Hosting it Yourself

If you want to host this application yourself, you'll need a Linux server with Ruby and MySQL (or MariaDB) installed. Follow the steps below:

  1. Clone the repo:

    git clone https://github.com/seven1m/bible_api
    cd bible_api
    git submodule update --init
    
  2. Install the dependencies:

    gem install bundler
    bundle config --local deployment true # optional, but prefered on a server
    bundle install
    
  3. Create the database and import the translations:

    mysql -uroot -e "create database bible_api; grant all on bible_api.* to user@localhost identified by 'password';"
    export DATABASE_URL="mysql2://user:password@localhost/bible_api"
    bundle exec ruby import.rb
    
  4. Host the app with Passenger

    ... or run bundle exec ruby app.rb if you are just testing.
