Hurl was created for the Rails Rumble 2009 in 48 hours. Now Hurl is an open source project for your enjoyment.
- benatkin forked hurl to work on Heroku & CouchDB.
- localtoast forked it to make it single user.
- brianjlandau changed some of the copy & removed the examples and added HTTP Basic auth for creating and deleting hurls.
Hurl requires Ruby 1.8.6+
First download hurl and cd into the directory:
git clone git://github.com/defunkt/hurl cd hurl
Or download the zip.
Next make sure you have RubyGems installed.
Then install Bundler:
gem install bundler
Now install Hurl's dependencies:
First get a CouchDB database and get the url, including auth. I got my DB from Cloudant.
git clone git://github.com/vigetlabs/hurl.git cd hurl heroku create my-clever-name --stack cedar heroku addons:add cloudant:oxygen git push heroku master
Now you can go to http://my-clever-name.herokuapp.com/
