Get it

First of all, use the gem command to install ubiquo:

gem install ubiquo

In order to get an Ubiquo based application you should run the ubiquo command:

ubiquo –mysql myapp

This will generate a fresh rails project using the Ubiquo generator.Now wait until the following tasks ends. After that you will have a ubiquo based project using a git repository with all ubiquo plugins as git submodules.

Once finished you must configure some options manually.

  1. Configure database: Ubiquo provides a simple database.yml configuration based on your choice through the template execution and you may change it. Open the config/database.yml and configure it as you need.
  2. Init the database: Ubiquo needs some initial data. It provides a rake task that initializes the database with that data.rake ubiquo:db:init
  3. Create the admin user: In order to start your first Ubiquo experience you need you user to log in. Run that rake task:

    rake ubiquo:create_user

    It will ask you some information about the user. Answer it and the user will be created.

    This is an example of user creation:

    Enter user login: admin

    Enter user password: *****(admin)

    Enter password again: *****(admin)

    Enter user e-mail: admin@company.com

    Enter your name: Admin

    Enter your surname: Admin admin

    Should this user be active? yes

    Should this user have admin privileges? yes

    Should this user have superadmin privileges? yes

  4. Enjoy it!: At this point Ubiquo installation is finished. Run script/server and point your browser to http://localhost:3000/ubiquo
