You must have the following things installed before you can proceed.
First thing we'll want to do is make the app work on our local machine, so we can adjust the aesthetic locally.
Clone the app to your local machine with
git clone email@example.com:soundcloud/soundcloud-competition.git
Run the following commands:
bundle install rake db:setup rails s
Then adjust the aesthetic as needed. Images can be found in
/app/assets/images and the theme related stylesheet is located at
/app/assets/stylesheets/theme.css.scss. Note: The text will be adjusted via an admin once your app is deployed.
Once you're satisfied with your app adjustments, we can get it deployed to Heroku via Git.
Register a new SoundCloud application for your Competition here. Note: We'll need to revisit this page once the app is properly deployed to add our app callback url.
Add the newly created app key and secret to
Create a new app on Heroku
heroku create app_name --stack cedar
Commit all the adjustments and then push them to your newly created Heroku app
git add . git commit -m "first heroku push" git push heroku master
Then setup your database and turn on caching
heroku run rake db:setup heroku addons:add memcache
Open your app
Head back to your SoundCloud apps and click edit next to your app. Using the url of your newly created Heroku app, add the following callback url to your SoundCloud app:
Finally, claim the Competition admin by visiting
yourapp.herokuapp.com/admin. You can adjust all of the Competition text from here.
