Besides installation means, the setting up should be pretty the same on Windows.

The project uses the following tools with following versions. We will explain you how to get them :

Here's how to get a [http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html development environment] up and running. This is where any new pod runner should start, as well as anyone looking to contribute to diaspora*.

==== Step 1: Get the sources and install the tools ====

==== Step 1: Run the script and follow the on screen instructions. ====
  
The diaspora* project uses git and Github to manage sources. You can clone them with the following command :
+
  bash <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/diaspora/diaspora/master/script/install.sh)
  
    git clone https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora.git
+
Alternatively you can also try an experimental install script (written in Ruby): [https://github.com/Raven24/diaspora-install see here]
  
Then, to get the tools, you must use the packaging command-line tool of your distribution : <tt>apt-get</tt>, <tt>urpmi</tt>, <tt>yum</tt>, etc...
+
==== Step 2: Run the development server ====
Ruby should be in every decent distribution repo :
 
  
  # On Mageia/Mandriva :
+
  rails s
  urpmi ruby
 
  # On Ubuntu/Debian :
 
  apt-get install ruby
 
  # On Fedora/CentOS :
 
  yum install ruby
 
  
The other tools might or might not be prepackaged by your distribution. On Mageia/Mandriva Linux, you should do the following :
+
then visit 'http://localhost:3000' in your browser.
  
  urpmi ruby-RubyGems
+
==== Step 3 (for developers): Run tests ====
  urpmi ruby-rails
 
  urpmi ruby-rvm
 
  urpmi ruby-rspec
 
  urpmi ruby-bundler
 
  
Your distribution might have a different naming scheme for ruby packages. If they are not named the same way than on Mageia/Mandriva, you can search them with the following :
+
  rake
 
 
  # On Fedora/CentOS :
 
  yum search rvm
 
  # On Debian/Ubuntu :
 
  apt-cache search rvm
 
 
 
If you can't find any of these, you should be able to get all the required tools with RubyGems.
 
Please refer to the [https://rubygems.org/pages/download following page] to see how to install and use it.
 
 
 
It is better to use the tools packaged by your distribution than these installed by gem if they exists.
 
At least, you should have the <tt>rvm</tt> and <tt>bundler</tt> gems installed.
 
 
 
==== Step 2: Setting up the environment ====
 
 
 
Once you have <tt>rvm</tt> and <tt>bundler</tt> installed, place yourself in the diaspora source directory and type :
 
 
 
    # Will install the correct version of ruby
 
    rvm install 2.1.2
 
    # Will use the correct version of ruby by default
 
    rvm use 2.1.2 --default
 
 
 
the <tt>--default</tt> option will make ruby use the version by default in every shell. Without this option, you will have to type <tt>rvm use 2.0.0-p481</tt> each time you want to start the diaspora server.
 
 
 
Then, install all the required bundles :
 
 
 
    bundle update
 
  
One last step : configure all the config files ! Move to ''./config'' and copy all the ''.example'' files renaming them by removing the ''.example'' part.
+
==== Step 4 (for everyone): Party! ====
You should have three : ''diaspora.yml.example'', ''database.yml.example'' and ''schedule.yml.example''. Or you can do it with one command-line... because it's cool !
 
  
    for file in `ls *.example`; do cp "$file" `echo "$file" | sed s/.example//`; done
 
 
Then, edit the file ''database.yml'' to set the credentials to your database. by default, it is using mysql, but you can set postgres.
 
You just have to comment the line <tt><<: *mysql</tt> and uncomment <tt>#<<: *postgres</tt>
 
 
If you want to work on the XMPP chat, please also follow the instructions [[Vines|there]].
 
 
==== Step 3 : start the server ! ====
 
 
    ./script/server
 
 
and go to the page [http://0.0.0.0:3000 http://0.0.0.0:3000]
 
 
==== Step 4 : Run tests ====
 
 
  rake

Quick Start

Here's how to get a development environment up and running. This is where any new pod runner should start, as well as anyone looking to contribute to diaspora*.

This script assumes you have a basic Rails setup installed.

Step 1: Run the script and follow the on screen instructions.

 bash <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/diaspora/diaspora/master/script/install.sh)

Alternatively you can also try an experimental install script (written in Ruby): see here

Step 2: Run the development server

 rails s

then visit 'http://localhost:3000' in your browser.

Step 3 (for developers): Run tests

 rake

Step 4 (for everyone): Party!

Main installation guides

Want a production setup? Having trouble with the installation script? Want to install diaspora* the slow way?
