    Set up

    Assuming that Ruby is already installed on your machine, you need to install bundler gem to install other required gems so that you can run the test server.

    $ cd test
    $ gem install bundler

    Once bundler is installed, run bundle install which install required gems (mostly sinatra)

    $ bundle install
    Fetching source index for
    Using rack (1.4.1)
    Installing rack-contrib (1.1.0)
    Using rack-protection (1.2.0)
    Using tilt (1.3.3)
    Using sinatra (1.3.2)
    Using bundler (1.0.21)

    Once all the required gems are installed, run the following command

    $ rackup
    >>> Serving: ~/dataset/test/../
    >> Thin web server (v1.3.1 codename Triple Espresso)
    >> Maximum connections set to 1024
    >> Listening on, CTRL+C to stop

    Open the test page on the browser

    open http://localhost:9292/test/index.html


    • Any new functionality must have tests and ensure all current tests still pass. All tests are located in the test/unit directory.
    • We use cowboy's grunt library to build all our final dependencies. You will need to install grunt per the instructions here: Dataset uses grunt 0.4.
