 * review railties after Debian packages are recognizable by Rubygems

Getting Rails 3 into Debian wheezy - coordination page

DISCLAIMER: we don't know if it will be possible to get Rails 3 on wheezy. Nevertheless, this page is being used to coordinate our attempt. -- AntonioTerceiro

TODO list

  • metapackages: ruby-rails-3.2 + rails3

  • Make Debian packages recognizable by Rubygems - this is necessary because of the way Rails uses bundler to declare application dependencies and load them at the right time. It will require overriding the Rubygems path and modifying dh_ruby to install a .gemspec file. WIP - terceiro

    • (./) change gem2deb to install gemspec

    • (./) upload this new gem2deb

    • (./) upload rubygems-integration

    • new upload of rubygems-integration (version 1.1)
    • {*} mass upload of all packages depending on gem2deb

      • see this thread

      • Look out for relevant exceptions:
        • (./) ruby-sqlite3 does not have a gemspec

        • ruby-mysql does not have a gemspec
        • ruby-pg does not have a gemspec
        • (./) ruby-sprockets is 2.4.x, while the actionpack gemspec requires 2.1.x !!!! added a fake gemspec to make the package also provide sprockets ~> 2.1.0 -- according to the upstream sprockets README the dependency should actually be ~> 2.0

  • Package missing dependencies:
    • /!\ jquery-rails (2.0.2) waiting in NEW

    • rdoc not actually needed, provided by ruby

    • /!\ coffee-script-source waiting in NEW

    • /!\ execjs waiting in NEW

      • depends on a Javascript runtime. Node.js might not get into Wheezy, but maybe we can get execjs to work fine under gjs.
      • execjs also supports spidermonkey, but the spidermonkey adapter is marked as deprecated (why is that?)
      • for now, uploaded depending on nodejs -- we need to find a definitive runtime that is going to be available in Wheezy
    • /!\ coffee-script waiting in NEW

      • must be patched to use the existing coffeescript from libjs-coffeescript)
    • /!\ coffee-rails waiting in NEW

    • sass-rails WIP - gramos

    • /!\ uglifier waiting in NEW

  • review ruby-railties-3.2 package
    • stop creating a modified Gemfile
    • recommend all packages used in the default Gemfile. Recommends: ruby-sqlite3, ruby-sass-rails, ruby-coffee-rails, ruby-uglifier, ruby-jquery-rails

  • make sure that installing rails3 with rails (2.3) installed works (i.e. rails and its components are removed in favor of rails3 and its components).
  • also make sure the inverse also works (i.e. installing rails (2.3) while having rails3 installed)
  • bugs
    • master bug preventing the entire rails 3 stack from entering testing: 674518

    • bug links here

Rails 3 testcase

  • Create an empty application
    • the Gemfile must be same as the one created by rails installed via rubygems
    • yet nothing should be downloaded via rubygems/bundler
    • you must be able to boot the application
      • rails console
      • rails server
    • remove public/index.html
    • add a welcome controller and point the root to its index
  • acessing / must work
    • jquery and jquery_ujs must be referenced in the page header
  • rake assets:precompile must work
  • Coffee Script files must be properly compiled to Javascript and run
  • SASS files must be properly compiled to CSS and used

Sample application: testapp.tar.gz

  • the homepage must present "8 products until now."
  • each parragraph must have the rails logo as background in the right side
  • the page background should be yellow
  • there must be an alert saying "Hello from Coffee Script!"
