Setting up the app

These instructions assume that you are using RVM, rbenv, or something else that is compatible with .ruby-version.

  • gem install bundler
  • bundle install
  • Create config/database.yml (see config/database.yml.example)
  • Create config/config.yml (see config/config.yml.example)
  • rake db:create
  • rake db:schema:load
  • rake db:migrate

You can now run rails server and navigate to /admin/users/ to manually add politicians. Alternatively, you can load politicians in bulk from a CSV spreadsheet using the rake politicians:import_csv CSV=myfile.csv command. See twoopsters.csv as an example of the format to use. If you use the politicians:import_csv task you should then use the politicians:reset_avatars task as well. This will download the avatars currently in use by each politician.
