Comiks Tracker

A simple Sinatra app that will allow you to inventory your comic books - physical and virtual. You can see it in action on Heroku >> Comiks Tracker.

Thoughts

My second official Flatiron project, I decided to make something I could use. We have a ton of comic books in the house, and there are times a certain person attempts to "borrow" an issue permanently. I honestly didn't understand why I needed to this when I could just use Rails, but Sinatra has proven to be a great teacher. I'm way more comfortable with ActiveRecord now. Validations and associations are cool! And I was able to use a bit of bootstrap in the process. Very happy with this project and plan on building out my features a bit more.

Installation, Usage & Development

Clone this repository to your computer and run the following commands in your terminal:

bundle install
rake db:migrate
shotgun

Then navigate to localhost:9393 in your browser to see it in action.
