Running in development mode
WBlog MUST run in Linux or OSX. I assume you are using OS X 10.
You can run it like a Ruby on Rails project as usual:
- Check dependencies
ruby -v # 2.3.1 postgres --version # 9.x.x
- Clone it
git clone email@example.com:windy/wblog.git
- Install dependencies & configure
gem install bundler bundle install cp config/application.yml.example config/application.yml cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml
database.yml 's content as you need
- Start it
Open browser with
If there is any error found, please check your database's user and password.
- Post the first blog
visit: http://localhost:3000/admin, input your username and password configurated in
then, post a new article.
OK, That's all.
mina as automation deployment tool, uses
puma as the Rack container.
nginx as reverse proxy server.
It will be very fast.
Ruby on Rails project deployment is another topic, I would NOT talk it here.
