First RoR Project

I went ahead and uploaded my first RoR project to github: http://github.com/jeffa/RoR-Depot

This project is simply the example web app from Agile Development With Rails (4th ed.). I am sticking very closely with the instructions but i am using Twitter Bootstrap instead of the author’s stylesheets. I am also using Travis CI so i am getting some experience with basic deployment issues: http://travis-ci.org/jeffa/RoR-Depot

I have a few issues to solve before i should move on, such as obtaining fine control over which stylesheets and javascripts are included and which order they are included in; discovering a proper way to call rake db:migrate – right now i am using a hack:

This works and even though bundle install will be implicitly called (again), the build process is aware this instruction has already been run and does repeat the instruction. But it’s a hack. There is a proper solution … 🙂
