MetricFu is awesome! Metrical strives to make it a little bit easier to get working.

  • Don't make MetricFu or any metrics part of the dependencies of your project; so you don't need to add anything to your Gemfile.

  • You can run MetricFu in any project:

    $ gem install metrical
    $ cd /path/of/your/project
    $ metrical
  • Per project configuration can be done in a simple .metrics file in the root directory of your project. In here you can configure MetricFu as you normally would. Example: do
      config.graph_engine = :gchart

For more information on configuring your metrics, please visit the MetricFu homepage. Any configuration options you see there can be done in the .metrics file.

And that's all there is too it. If you have any suggestions, ideas or bug fixes, please drop me a line, or make a github issue.
