This is a collection of rails application templates that are designed to get a rails application with datamapper up and running quickly. Currently, these templates are only compatible with rails3.
If you have rails3 installed on your system, creating a datamapper app on rails3 is as easy as issuing one command.
rails dm_rails3_app -m https://github.com/snusnu/rails-templates/raw/master/dm_rails_master.rb
If you don't have rails3 installed, the following should get you going.
gem update --system # We need rubygems-1.3.6 for the command below to work gem install rails --pre
That's it. Have fun!
Currently, rspec-rails isn't yet fully compatible with rails3 and not yet completely ORM agnostic. Preliminary support is available though.
The project includes a Gemfile that contains one single line of code:
gem 'sinatra', '~> 1.0a', :git => 'git://github.com/sinatra/sinatra.git'
This enables a complete development environment on top pf sinatra simply by running
bundle install bundle exec ruby dev_server.rb
Once the dev server is running, use a local URL when testing the app generation. All files in the project directory are served by sinatra.
rails dm_rails3_app -m http://localhost:4567/dm_rails_master.rb
The sinatra service simply replaces the github URLs with local ones, thus allowing to test the application template without constantly pushing fixes to github. This got annoying.
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
