When all tests succeed on Travis CI, the application is deployed to Heroku. Click the badges for detailed info.
The uptime of the deployed applications can be tracked here.
Errors that occur while using the deployed master branch on Heroku are logged to the Errbit error catcher, you can sign in with your Github account.

Local Setup

  • bundle install Install the required Ruby gem dependencies defined in the Gemfile
  • cp database.sqlite.yml database.yml Select database config (for development we recommend SQLite)
  • rake db:create db:migrate db:seed Setup database, run migrations, seed the database with defaults
  • rails s Start the Rails development server (By default runs on localhost:3000)
  • rspec Run all the tests (using the RSpec test framework)

Setup using Vagrant (Virtual Machine)

If you want to use a VM to setup the project (e.g. when on Windows), we recommend Vagrant. Please keep in mind that this method may lead to a loss in performance, due to the added abstraction layer.

vagrant up # bring up the VM
vagrant ssh # login using SSH
cd hpi-swt2
echo "gem: --no-document" >> ~/.gemrc # disable docs for gems
bundle install # install dependencies
gem install pg # required for Postgres usage
cp config/database.psql.yml config/database.yml # in case you want to use Postgres
cp config/database.sqlite.yml config/database.yml # in case you want to user SQLite
exit # restart the session, required step
vagrant ssh # reconnect to the VM
cd hpi-swt2
rails s -b 0 # start the rails server
# the -b part is necessary since the app is running in a VM and would
# otherwise drop the requests coming from the host OS
