Build Status Stories in Next

Wheelmap.org is an online map to search, find and mark wheelchair-accessible places. Get involved by marking public places like bars, restaurants, cinemas or supermarkets!

This Repository is the source code of the website Wheelmap.org.

Development Environment

A Vagrantfile is bundled for convenience. It is the easiest way to get started testing or developing wheelmap. It will set up the application entirely and configure it for use inside the box. Please note it imports data for Berlin only to say time.

To use this just navigate into the Wheelmap directory and run vagrant up. After it is completed you can enter the box with vagrant ssh. You'll find a current copy of the repository at /vagrant, cd into it then you can start the server with bundle exec rails server, visit it at localhost:3000.

If you use the vagrant box you do not need to worry about the rest of the setup below It is all done for you.

$ brew install phantomjs   # via Homebrew

$ port install phantomjs   # via MacPorts


$ sudo npm install -g phantomjs-prebuilt

Clone the app from Github:

$ git clone https://github.com/sozialhelden/wheelmap.git --depth 1
$ cd wheelmap
$ bundle install --path vendor/bundle

II. Getting started

Copy the example secrets.yml:
$ cp config/secrets.sample.yml config/secrets.yml
Copy the example openstreetmap config:
$ cp config/open_street_map.SAMPLE.yml config/open_street_map.yml
Copy the example environment variable config file:
$ cp .env.sample .env
Copy the example database config and edit accordingly:
$ cp config/database.SAMPLE.yml config/database.yml
Edit database.yml to reflect your current database settings.
Now lets create the actual database and prepare minimal data:
$ bundle exec rake db:create:all
Then log into the mysql server and pipe the structure.sql file into the database you want to use, for example:
$ mysql -u root wheelmap_development < db/structure.sql
Run the rake task to seed data:
$ bundle exec rake db:seed
And get some POI data into the database:
$ wget http://download.geofabrik.de/europe/germany/berlin-latest.osm.bz2
$ bzcat berlin-latest.osm.bz2 | bundle exec rake osm:import
Install all JavaScript dependencies:


$ brew install node
$ npm install -g npm
$ npm install


$ sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
$ sudo apt-get install -y npm
$ sudo npm install -g npm
