Local installation

Before installing Consul and having it up and running make sure you all prerequisites installed.

  1. First, clone the Consul Github repository:

    git clone https://github.com/consul/consul.git
  2. Go to the project folder and install the gems stack using Bundler:

    cd consul
    bundle install
  3. Copy the environment example configuration files inside new readable ones:

    cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml
    cp config/secrets.yml.example config/secrets.yml

    And setup database credentials with your consul user in your new database.yml file.

  4. Run the following Rake tasks to create and fill your local database with the minimum data to run the application:

    bin/rake db:create
    bin/rake db:setup
    bin/rake db:dev_seed
    RAILS_ENV=test bin/rake db:setup
  5. Check everything is fine by running the test suite (beware it takes some long minutes):

    bundle exec rspec
  6. Now you have all set, run the application:

    rails s

    Congratulations! Your local Consul application will be running now at http://localhost:3000.

In case you want to access the local application as admin, a default user verified and with admin permissions was created by the seed files with username admin@consul.dev and password 12345678.

If you need an specific user to perform actions such as voting without admin permissions, a default verified user is also available with username verified@consul.dev and password 12345678.
