Using the Hyperstack Installer

In the directory of your existing or newly created Rails app:
  • add gem 'rails-hyperstack', "~> 1.0.alpha1.0" to your Gemfile
  • run bundle install
  • run bundle exec rails hyperstack:install
Note: if you want to use the unreleased edge branch your gem specification will be:
gem 'rails-hyperstack',
git: 'git://',
branch: 'edge',
glob: 'ruby/*/*.gemspec'
HOWEVER currently we are doing weekly alpha updates, you should not need to do this.

Start the Rails app

  • bundle exec foreman start to start Rails and the Hotloader
  • Navigate to http://localhost:5000/
You will see an empty page with the word "App" displayed.
Open your editor and find the file /app/hyperstack/components/app.rb
Change the 'App' to 'Hello World' and save the file.
You should see the page on the browser change to "Hello World"
You are in business!
If this does not work, please contact us on slack, or create an issue on github.

Installer Options

You can control what gets installed with the following options:
bundle exec rails hyperstack:install:webpack # just add webpack
bundle exec rails hyperstack:install:skip-webpack # all but webpack
bundle exec rails hyperstack:install:hyper-model # just add hyper-model
bundle exec rails hyperstack:install:skip-hyper-model # all but hyper-model
bundle exec rails hyperstack:install:hotloader # just add the hotloader
bundle exec rails hyperstack:install:skip-hotloader # skip the hotloader
Note that the :webpack and :skip-webpack options control whether the installer will add the webpacker Gem. If webpacker is already installed in the Gemfile then the installer will always integrate with webpacker.
