Welcome to TOKYO Rails

The TOKYO Rails Meetup Group is for web engineers who are using, or are interested in learning more about the Ruby on Rails framework. You can find out more or join at http://tokyorails.org

This goal of this github project is to make a simple website for the group that can serve as a learning tool we can collaborate on, as well as a real site we can use as a focal point for group activities.

What Can I Do?

Since this is a community project, any ideas/features that are useful to others are welcome.

We're using http://trello.com to organize user stories. some initial stories are added to get us going so please email tokyorails@gmail.com if you want to get access.

The first milestone is to get to a point where we can have the tokyorails.org domain resolve to our own site rather than meetup.com

Getting Started

It's recommended to use the amazing rvm so either install:

http://beginrescueend.com/rvm/install/

or if you already have it installed, make sure you are up to date

$ rvm get latest

An .rvmrc file is checked in to the repo. To use this, install the following ruby and create a gemset

$ rvm install ruby-1.9.3-p0
$ rvm gemset create 'rails31-ruby193'

Next fork the repo and clone your fork to your dev machine:

$ git clone git@github.com:[your github name]/tokyorails.git

We're using capybara-webkit which depends on QT. To install QT, refer to the article here (OSX/Linux):

https://github.com/thoughtbot/capybara-webkit/wiki/Installing-Qt-and-compiling-capybara-webkit

The project uses ImageMagick for image manipulation

To install on Debian based Linux distributions:

$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick

To install on Mac:

If you don't have homebrew installed, do that first:
https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/wiki/installation

$ brew install imagemagick

To install on Windows:

http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows

The project uses bundler, so if you dont have this installed already:

$ gem install bundler

Then simply bundle install and you should be good to go:

$ cd tokyorails
$ bundle install

If bundler fails because of problems regarding the 'pg' gem then you can either install the relevant libraries required on your system or use:

$ bundle install --without production

The 'pg' gem is for Postgresql database support which is only needed on production in Heroku, not our development environments

We're using OmniAuth to authenticate with Meetup.com using their OAuth2.0 API. In order to test this locally, you need to add a couple of environment varibles to ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc as follow:

export MEETUP_KEY=dge0tlogc6cf2rfb2b0pppovg3
export MEETUP_SECRET=jkh9u2gk5krj4ki42f5v75cel8

Testing

To run the tests:

$ rspec spec
