How to Run a Rails App in Production Locally
View running_app_in_production_locally.markdown
  1. Add gem 'rails_12factor' to your Gemfile. This will add error logging and the ability for your app to serve static assets.
  2. bundle
  3. Run RAILS_ENV=production rake db:create db:migrate db:seed
  4. Run rake secret and copy the output
  5. From the command line: export SECRET_KEY_BASE=output-of-rake-secret
  6. To precompile your assets, run rake assets:precompile. This will create a folder public/assets that contains all of your assets.
  7. Run RAILS_ENV=production rails s and you should see your app.

Remember to clobber your assets (rake assets:clobber) and re-precompile (rake assets:precompile) if you make changes.

Changing Your Command Prompt

First, make sure you're at the home directory by typing cd.

Next, type nano .bash_profile. Copy and paste this into the window:

# get current branch in git repo
function parse_git_branch() {
  BRANCH=`git branch 2> /dev/null | sed -e '/^[^*]/d' -e 's/* \(.*\)/\1/'`
  if [ ! "${BRANCH}" == "" ]
You can’t perform that action at this time.
