It’s been a while since learning basic of Rails. Here comes a good way of testing and building them using the continuous integration tool.
I’ve downloaded CCrb at http://cruisecontrolrb.thoughtworks.com/
It’s very easy, extract it add your app:
1. Add the project from the svn:
prompt> $CCHOME/cruise add rails_project -u svn_url
2. Start CruiseControl:
prompt> $CCHOME/cruise start
3. Point your browser to http://localhost:3333
I was trying to run it at Amazon EC2 and customize the new AMI. So that when I boot an instance it will launch the CruiseControl. And I can check it what projects are having problems during testing and building process. See snapshot:
Hope to do more Rails and EC2 projects next. Probably add more features on this CC using Capistrano..
I just have some little experiment with Rails in the past 2days.
Reading and testing from these words I was able to get “interesting”.
Here it goes.
I get ready to install via apt-get here:
prompt$ sudo apt-get install ruby irb
prompt$ sudo apt-get install rails mongrel mongrel-doc
prompt$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.0 mysql-client-5.0
prompt$ rails rails_pet
prompt$ cd rails_pets
prompt$ ruby script/generate model pet
Login to Mysql:
mysql> create database rails_pets_development;
prompt$ vi config/database.yml
prompt$ rake db:migrate
== CreatePets: migrating ======================================================
== CreatePets: migrated (0.0797s) =============================================
$prompt ruby script/generate controller pet
prompt$ ruby script/generate scaffold Pets
Launch the server:
prompt$ ruby script/server
I point my browser to: http://localhost:3000/
Then later to http://localhost:3000/pets/
So far so good, but little tricky. I need to go around with all these stuff in the next few days. I need more ways to motivate myself learning Rails..maybe a yoga or a night workout will suffice. 🙂
