This app lets you inform people about the status of services you provide and projects you're responsible for.
Clean installation has a superuser account with
admin:admin credentials; be sure to change it after first login.
While Rails can be installed on many operating systems, we've include detailed instructions for installing on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Configuration of Linux Instance
You'll need to first download and install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. To do this, go to Ubuntu.
Installing Rails on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
After you've installed Ubuntu, follow the instructions below (which were adpated from digitalocean)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install curl nodejs git libxslt-dev libxml2-dev
\curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable
rvm install 1.9.3
rvm use 1.9.3 --default
rvm rubygems current
gem install rails
Now that you've intalled Ruby and other packages, you will install CanaryBoard on this instance.
git clone https://github.com/stelligent/canaryboard.git
bundle exec rake db:setup
bundle exec rake db:test:prepare
bundle exec rspec spec/
- Launch and web browser and type http://[hostname]:3000
- Login to the application using the default credentials (
After your CanaryBoard Rails app is up and running, you can use the examples here:
- set-indicators.rb - You can customize set-indicators.rb (making the appropriate changes to API_URL and API_KEY)
- update-indicators.rb - You can customize and update-indicators.rb (making the appropriate changes to API_URL and API_KEY).
- You can also view api-usage-example to update the status indicators for projects and services
(Note: if you're having trouble running the scripts, you may need to run them as
sudo. It shouldn't be necessary but has gotten some people around issues.)
For more information, you can read the Agile DevOps: Build a DevOps dashboard from IBM developerWorks on using CanaryBoard.
