BitParrot.co

This is the code for the website BitParrot.co.

I conceived, designed, and built this myself. I did it because I was tired of tracking all the "bits" I needed to track in separate places so I built this "parrot" that does it for me.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See deployment for notes on how to deploy the project on a live system.

Prerequisites

  • Postgres (OSX users can run brew install postgresql)
  • bundler (gem install bundler)
  • Ruby 2.3.1 (or whatever version this app is currently using, check the Gemfile)
  • Any environment variables you prefer to setup and use.

Installing

  • bundle install
  • (start your Postgres db)
  • rake db:create (TODO: create seed data)
  • (remember to migrate which in a Rails 5 app is raila db:migrate)

To create an initial admin user, fire up rails c and do the following:

u = User.create(username: "Whatever", password: "foo123456", email: "[email protected]", password_confirmation: "foo123456")
u.activate!
u.is_admin = true
u.save

Running the server

  • rails s

Running the tests

There are pre-seeded rspec tests. To run these it is 'rspec spec' from your command line.

More about the tests

These pre-seeded tests include feature, model, and policy tests. See the RSpec folder for details.

Deployment

Since this is a Ruby application, deploying it to Heroku is easy.

Built With

  • Ruby
  • Rails 5
  • HAML

And the usual suspects including:

  • Html
  • CSS
  • Javascript
