TagFlow is a tag-oriented task/issue/ticket/bug tracking Rails application for agile teams. It is multi-lingual and adaptable to you and your team's work style.
Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. Ruby originated in Japan during the mid-1990s and was initially developed and designed by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto.
Ruby supports multiple programming paradigms (including functional, object oriented and imperative), and features a dynamic type system and automatic memory management; it is therefore similar in varying respects to Python, Perl, Lisp, Dylan, and CLU.
In its current, official implementation, written in C, Ruby is a single-pass interpreted language. As there is currently no specification of the Ruby language, this implementation is considered the de facto reference. As of 2008, there are a number of alternative implementations of the Ruby language, including Rubinius, JRuby, YARV, and IronRuby, each of which takes a different approach, with JRuby providing just-in-time compilation functionality.
The language was created by Yukihiro Matsumoto, who started working on Ruby on February 24, 1993, and released it to the public in 1995. "Ruby" was named as a gemstone because of a joke within Matsumoto's circle of friends alluding to the name of the Perl programming language.
As of December 2007, the latest stable version of the reference implementation is 1.8.6. Apart from the reference, several other virtual machines are being developed for Ruby. These include JRuby, a port of Ruby to the Java platform, IronRuby, an implementation for the .NET Framework produced by Microsoft, and Rubinius, an interpreter modeled after self-hosting Smalltalk virtual machines.
Configure the database: edit/create config/database.yml for your environment. Depending on your environment, you may need to create the development and production databases (but not the tables) and grant a user access to them. For example in mysql:
GRANT ALL ON tagflow_development.* TO railsUser;
The tables need to be created and initialized. The right way to do this is "rake db:migrate". There are many wrong ways including "./script/runner db/schema.rb" This will create the tables, but not setup the Admin (superuser or root user) and Anonymous user. The latter is not needed, the former is. User 1 has super powers.
If you want the default site language to be something other than English, change the value of $SITE_LOCALE in config/environment.rb. The two default users both start with the default locale.
Install the Globalite plugin:
../../script/plugin install http://globalite.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/
mv trunk globalite
Optionally install the RSpec plugin (if you intend to do development or submit patches, do this.)
./script/plugin install svn://rubyforge.org/var/svn/rspec/tags/CURRENT/rspec
./script/plugin install svn://rubyforge.org/var/svn/rspec/tags/CURRENT/rspec_on_rails
If running Rails 2.0, install the classic_pagination and acts_as_tree plugins:
./script/plugin install svn://errtheblog.com/svn/plugins/classic_pagination
./script/plugin install http://svn.rubyonrails.org/rails/plugins/acts_as_tree
To check your installation, run:
And if RSpec is installed:
If they run, you're ready to go!
