An image board.
As this is ongoing project, there will be more changes on requirement as this project goes. Currently this application is developed using:
- Ruby 2.6+
- PostgreSQL 11+
- Bundler gem
- And various other requirement for the gems (check
Gemfile for the list)
On RHEL5 (and 6), it goes like this (outdated list):
Base, EPEL, and postgresql official repositories contain all the requirements.
After initializing PostgreSQL database, create user for moebooru with
postgres# create user moebooru_user with password 'the_password' createdb;
- Initialize database with
bundle exec rake db:reset (there will be some errors reported which is expected)
bundle exec rake db:migrate
- Start the server (
bundle exec unicorn or
bundle exec puma if using JRuby/Rubinius)
config/local_config.rb.example. Additionally, as I move to ENV-based configuration, here's the list of currently supported ENV variables:
MB_DATABASE_URL: sets database connection configuration. Syntax:
MB_MEMCACHE_SERVERS: addresses of memcache servers. Separated by comma.
MB_PIWIK_HOST: sets the host this application will attempt to contact a Piwik installation at. Defaults to false to not use Piwik if unset.
MB_PIWIK_ID: sets the Site ID this application will send analytics data for.
MB_THREADS: sets number of threads this application is running. Currently used to determine number of connection pool for
memcached. Defaults to 1 if unset.
Additional configuration for web server
On setup with separate image servers, additional configuration is required for avatar and inline image cropping to work. Specifically, due to how the image cropping library works, the image servers need to allow CORS for image access from main url.
