git clone [email protected]:your-github-username/bostonrb.git cd bostonrb
For local development, install the required gems, minus the production and staging gemspecs
bundle install --without production staging
Setup the development database (uses sqlite)
cp config/database.example.yml config/database.yml rake db:create && rake db:migrate && rake db:seed

Compile all the assets
Run the server
The site is deployed to Heroku and takes advantage of their Varnish layer by setting far future expires HTTP headers.
Just use the set the video_url attribute on the presentation to the video's actual URL and everything is parsed.
The one exception is Blip.tv. You must use the src value from the video's embed code instead of the video's URL.
This app is built and maintained by members of the BostonRB community
