Rails tests codecov

Accounts is a plugin for Spina, a content management system built in Ruby on Rails. Designed to be used with spina-admin-conferences and spina-admin-journal, it provides an admin interface to manage public user accounts with devise.


The plugin adds a single menu to Spina's primary navigation, which allows you to manage a devise user stored as PublicUser.


From scratch

Make sure you have a working installation of Ruby on Rails 6.1. You can find a setup guide here.

Then run:

$ rails new your-app --database=postgresql
$ cd your-app
$ bin/rails db:create
$ bin/rails active_storage:install

Add this line to your new application's Gemfile:

gem 'spina', '~> 2.0'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Run the Spina install generator:

$ bin/rails g spina:install

And follow the prompts. Once this is complete, follow the instructions below.

For existing Spina installations

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'spina-admin-conferences-accounts', '~> 0.1'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

You'll then need to install and run the migrations for the journal:

$ bin/rails spina_admin_conferences_accounts_engine:install:migrations
$ bin/rails db:migrate

You can then start a local server to test that everything's working.

$ bin/rails s

You can manually populate the database from within the app, or alternatively you can use seed data for testing. A sample seeds.rb file can be found here.
