First steps

What to do once you can run your app locally and deploy it to Heroku.

Create a real administrator for the app

Once launced, don't forget to create one or more real administrator of the website.

By default, there are 2 users inside your app :

  • An admin, with login "admin@example.com" and password "Mysecret+1234"
  • A customer, with login "customer@example.com" and password "Mysecret+1234"

Create a new administrator, with a real e-mail, and delete the 2 default users, for security purposes.

Extend the customer /profile pages

Don't rely on Rails scaffolders. We have tried to modify them, in order to match Bootrails views and controllers, but it quickly appeared to be very inefficient. Too much small differences between screens made impossible to generalise this approach.

Instead, find the screen that is close to your need, and copy/paste/modify views and controllers accordingly.

Note that app/views/shared/_profile_secondary_nav.html.erb contains the navigation between profile items.

Extend the /admin pages

Again, don't rely on Rails scaffolders, and copy/paste existing views and controllers according to your needs.

Note that app/views/shared/_admin_nav.html.erb contains the navigation between admin items.
