Create a New Host Application

If you're starting a new project or need an app to learn or experiment, use the rails executable with a Workarea app template to create a new app.

Viewing the App

Start an application server to view the app in a browser. For example, start the default Rails server:

$ cd path/to/your_app
$ bin/rails server

With the server running, browse the app at http://localhost:3000.

Preparing the App for Your Team

If you're creating an app for a new project, initialize a new git repository for your application. Be sure to commit your Gemfile.lock file so that your Ruby dependencies are locked down for everyone on your team.

Update the app's README with any notes or setup instructions specific to your app.

Then push your repository to Stash or another source code host so that your team members can clone the source.
