Turn to Your Left at the End of the Sky

Starting a Rails Project with Bort

I highly recommend Bort when you’re starting a new Ruby on Rails project. Assuming you’re using MySQL, the following steps are all that are necessary to get started:

  1. Download and unzip Bort into project folder
  2. Edit the database.yml and the settings.yml files
  3. Create the database: mysqladmin -u <username> -p create <db_name_development>
  4. If you’re using Dreamhost: add ‘host: mysql.<dbhostname>.com’ to your database.yml file
  5. rake db:migrate
