Initializing our application¶
Let us create a new rails app by running the following
$ rails new mpesa-app --database=postgresql --skip-test
From the command we are very explicit that we want our database to be postgresql (rails default database is sqlite3) and we are also skipping setting up test since will be using rspec, the default test is ussually minitest.
Like I have said we be using RSpec for our test, along side we will use cucumber for behavoir driven development
Worry not we will discuss cucumber in a bit for now just know it just like RSpec helping user in testing but this case from the user's perspective.
$ cd mpesa-app
Let create our databases: local level(our computer) we can both test and development database. Run this command to create them.
1 2 3
$ rails db:create Created database 'mpesa_app_development' Created database 'mpesa_app_test'
Let run the server at the development environment like so:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
$ rails server => Booting Puma => Rails 188.8.131.52 application starting in development => Run `rails server --help` for more startup options Puma starting in single mode... * Version 4.3.1 (ruby 2.6.3-p62), codename: Mysterious Traveller * Min threads: 5, max threads: 5 * Environment: development * Listening on tcp://127.0.0.1:3000 * Listening on tcp://[::1]:3000 Use Ctrl-C to stop
When visit localhost:3000 you should see
It work works properly therefore let us add our changes to git and push them like so:
1 2 3 4 5
$ git add . $ git commit -m "initial commit" $ git push origin master
