Rda(Rails Development Assist) is combined with lots of useful commands which can help you to setup your development enviroments and tools more quickly.
- Set up RVM for your rails application
- Deploy your rails application to Nginx (rails_env is set to development by default)
- Release your rails application
gem install rda
Or simply add rda to the Gemfile
And then, you should run
rda init under the root of your application.
After you run
rda init successfully. You will see a generated file
.rda under the root of your application and it contains options
Set up RVM
rda rvm setup
First of all, this command will check whether the RVM is installed. If RVM is installed, it will create a .rvmrc for the application with the content which looks like:
if [[ -s '/path/to/rvm/environments/ruby-1.9.3-p286@app_name' ]]; then . '/path/to/rvm/environments/ruby-1.9.3-p286@app_name' else rvm use ruby-1.9.3-p286@app_name --create fi
And then, it will create a config file to set up load paths of your applications.
# config/setup_load_paths.rb if ENV['MY_RUBY_HOME'] && ENV['MY_RUBY_HOME'].include?('rvm') begin require 'rvm' RVM.use_from_path! File.dirname(File.dirname(__FILE__)) rescue LoadError raise "RVM gem is currently unavailable." end end # If you're not using Bundler at all, remove lines bellow ENV['BUNDLE_GEMFILE'] = File.expand_path('../Gemfile', File.dirname(__FILE__)) require 'bundler/setup'
After setting up RVM, you need to trust the rvmrc by:
rvm rvmrc trust
Or you can set
rvm_trust_rvmrcs_flag=1 in ~/.rvmrc or /etc/rvmrc.
If RVM is not installed, this command will do nothing but exit.
Discard RVM settings
rda rvm discard
This command removes the
config/setup_load_paths.rb from your rails application.
rda nginx setup
Please make sure that you have the write permission to config your nginx, or you can run:
rvmsudo rda nginx setup
It will try to create
sites-enabled to save the configs of rails applications.
- sites-available saves the configs of the rails applications.
- sites-enabled saves the link to the rails applications.
Next it will set Nginx to include the configs under
sites-enabled. It means that only the applications configured under
sites-enabled will be loaded.
Now you should deploy your applications with a new command of rda.
rda app deploy
It will create a config file for your application under
sites-available and create a link to the config file under
sites-enabled. After all, it will create a local hostname for your application in
rda app restart
This command touches
tmp/restart.txt to restart your rails application, For detail, please visit http://bit.ly/ztKA07
Release your rails application
You should create a
VERSION under your application root path.
rda app release
