A simple implementation of PusherApp with Ruby on Rails
Ruby JavaScript


Getting started locally

$ bundle install

Edit config/database.yml and then set up the database

$ rake db:setup

Add some Pusher credentials in config/initializers/pusher.rb

Start the server

$ rails s

Visit http://localhost:3000/ in two browsers and start chatting.


If something isn't working it's most likely the Pusher credentials:

  • Take a look at the Rails log for any Pusher errors
  • Enable javascript debugging on line 20 of app/assets/javascripts/chat.js
