Full Description


This is the "Invocations" application for the Central Florida Freethought Community

Ruby on Rails

This application requires:

  • Ruby 2.2.2
  • Rails 4.2.1

Learn more about Installing Rails.

Getting Started

To develop the application, you can either setup Rails according to the previous instructions, or just use Vagrant.

Development with Docker


The way to install Docker depends on the platform. If you're on Mac OSX or Windows, you'll want to install Boot2Docker which will run it on a lightweight VM. There are instructions on the Docker site at

Docker Compose

The easiest way to run this on Docker is to use Docker Compose. The docker-compose.yml file is set up to run a web and a db container that are both linked. To build the containers, you can run docker-compose build from the current directory and then you can run docker-compose up to start the containers. On first boot, you will need to run docker-compose run web rake db:setup in another Terminal window. If everything goes well, the app will be accessible at the Docker IP on port 3000, usually

Development with Vagrant

The Vagrantfile provides a way to quickly set up a Vagrant development box with everything needed for the application. To use it,

  1. Install Vagrant,
  2. Install the librarian-chef plugin for Vagrant: vagrant plugin install vagrant-librarian-chef.
  3. Pull down the Git submodules, by running git submodule init and git submodule update
  4. From the project directory run vagrant up to start provisioning the server.

After the virtual Machine is running, you can login to it with vagrant ssh. From the /vagrant directory, run bundle install to pull down the application dependencies.

Configure environment variables

  1. Rename the .env.example file to .env and populate it with your values.
  2. Run rake secret to generate some values for both the DEVISE_SECRET and SECRET_KEY_BASE.

Database setup

To configure the database settings, rename the config/database.yml.example file to config/database.yml, change any necessary values, and then run bundle exec rake db:setup to create the database, perform the migrations, and create the admin user account.
Set up will seed the database and create a new admin user account with the email and password specified in the config/secrets.yml file, which will use the .env variables. This should be fine for development but feel free to change them.

Launch the server

After all of the above, restart the VM and with vagrant reload. To launch the server, log back in run cd /vagrant && foreman run rails server to start the app. Point your browser to http://localhost:3000.


Running tests

Before committing, or at least pushing, be sure your tests pass by running foreman run rspec. If you get an error regarding phantomjs, try manually install it via sudo apt-get install phantomjs -y.
