VoteATX is a voting place finder application for Travis County elections.
It is provided in two projects:
voteatx-app – The front-end application. github.com/open-austin/voteatx-app
voteatx-svc – The back-end web service (this project). github.com/open-austin/voteatx-svc
This program has been tested with Ruby vesions 1.9.3 and 2.0. It requires Sqlite3 database with Spatialite extensions.
Important: For more information on setting up Spatialite on your system, see: github.com/chip-rosenthal/findit-support#spatialite-support
Once the package is downloaded (and Spatialite has been installed), run:
$ bundle install
For development, you can run the application from the command line:
$ bin/voteatx-svc Starting VoteATX::Service ... CONFIGURE: environment = development CONFIGURE: root = /home/chip/Workspace/voteatx CONFIGURE: public_folder = /home/chip/Workspace/voteatx/public CONFIGURE: database = /home/chip/Workspace/voteatx/voteatx.db [2013-10-19 16:24:20] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1 [2013-10-19 16:24:20] INFO ruby 1.9.3 (2012-04-20) [x86_64-linux] == Sinatra/1.4.3 has taken the stage on 4567 for development with backup from WEBrick [2013-10-19 16:24:20] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=4838 port=4567
If you get an error such as:
SQLite3::SQLException: libspatialite.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (Sequel::DatabaseError)
that means your Spatialite library could not be located. You will need to specify the Spatialite library location when you start up the service. Use a command such as:
$ SPATIALITE=/usr/lib64/libspatialite.so.5.1.0 bin/voteatx-svc
Then, browse localhost:4567 to see the running application.
The application has been deployed using Phusion Passenger (mod_rails) under Apache. The “config.ru” file is used in production.
README-API.md describes the web services API
README-data.rdoc provides information on setting up the database.
Additional documentation can be produced by running: rake rdoc
