In order to install the project to be run on your computer (Development/Debug) you need to install ruby, the actual version used by the project is ruby-2.2.2 and postgresSQL Server running on your computer, but the project is much simpler to run with Docker (below).

Then, within the project directory :

  • Install Bundler
    $ gem install bundler
  • Install project dependencies
    $ bundle install
  • Setup the db (Create database, tables, applies migrations and use the seed.rb file)
    $ rake db:setup
  • Run the server
    $ bin/rails server

In order to run the project inside a Docker container, you must install docker, docker-compose, and docker-machine on your machine. Docker allows you to create docker containers from images, docker-compose allows multiple containers to communicate, and docker-machine works with virtualbox to generate a suitable VM for docker. +
! You Do Not Need Ruby, Rails or Postgres Server installed on your machine

Then, within the project directory :

# Docker Machine Setup (first time only, with docker-machine and virtualbox installed)

$ docker-machine create --drive virtualbox <vm-name>
$ eval "$(docker-machine env <vm-name>)"

The env command pipes docker and docker-compose commands to the VM to allow interaction with the container.

On subsequent startups, run
$ docker-machine start <vm-name>
instead of create.

to stop the VM, run
$ docker-machine stop <nm-name>

# First installation

$ docker-compose build
$ docker-compose run web rake db:setup

# Container startup

$ docker-compose up

# Running Tests with RSpec
$ docker-compose run web bundle exec rspec spec
$ docker-compose run web bundle exec cucumber features --tags ~@rufus

If the specs have problems with db access or you make ActiveRecord migrations to change the db schema, be sure to repopulate the test db:
$ docker-compose run web bundle exec rake db:test:migrate

In order to export and restore the DB, please refer to
