Ruby on Rails Tutorial sample application
This is the reference implementation of the sample application for the 4th edition of Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Learn Web Development with Rails by Michael Hartl.
For general help on the Rails Tutorial, see the Rails Tutorial Help page.
To get started with the app, clone the repo and then install the needed gems:
$ cd /path/to/repos $ git clone https://bitbucket.org/railstutorial/sample_app_4th_ed.git sample_app_reference $ cd sample_app_reference $ bundle install --without production
Next, migrate the database:
$ rails db:migrate
Finally, run the test suite to verify that everything is working correctly:
$ rails test
If the test suite passes, you'll be ready to run the app in a local server:
$ rails server
To check out the code for a particular chapter, first find the branch name using
$ git branch -a
A branch called
remotes/orgin/foo-bar can be checked out using
git checkout foo-bar.
Next, copy the contents of the
Gemfile using a text editor and then use
$ git checkout chapter-branch-name
to check out the chapter branch. Finally, copy the contents into the
Gemfile and run
$ bundle update
At this point, the branch should be working. (You have to copy the
Gemfile contents because it's incredibly hard to keep all branches up-to-date, so only the main one is guaranteed to be current.)
