Newbie question: how do I install this Ruby package?

Hello everyone.

I have a very basic question. I am completely new to Ruby, and I have no
idea how to figure this out.

I’d like to install this open source package on my site server:

https://github.com/flores/yet-anothe...ent-calculator

How can I do that?

Any help is really appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

Fab.

$ gît clone
https://github.com/flores/yet-another-nutrient-calculator.git

Or click on “download zip” button , right side or the github Web page.

Yes, I have downloaded the .zip archive, but then? How to use those
files?

Thanks!

semms to be a sinatra application.

gem install sinatra
gen install thin
gem install sinatra-r18n

rackup
== Sinatra (v1.4.6) has taken the stage on 6050 for production with
backup from Thin

then
go to http://localhost:6050

Thank you very much Regis for your reply and information, that’s exactly
what I guessed by searching around… but once I setup Sinatra and a
server/daemon is created on port 6050, how can I call that port from the
standard port 80 of the index.html of my domain name? via .htacces??

Thank you again.

Best,
Fab.

The application Sinatra is a HTTP server. so no need of apache.
you can change the port with -p option.
(must be root for port 80)
So :

sudo rackup -p 80

Or you can make a redirection in you apache configuration :

#with mod_rewrite
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule “^/nuts/(.+)” “http://mydns:6050/
