Bleeding edge Solidus
If you want to use the bleeding edge version of Solidus, you can require the Solidus GitHub repo's master branch:
gem 'solidus', github: 'solidusio/solidus'
The master branch is updated frequently and may break. Do not use this branch on a production system.
Manually run migrations
When you run the
spree:install generator without arguments, it runs
migrations, adds sample data, and seeds your database:
rails generate spree:install
You can use command arguments to skip any of these steps of the generator:
rails generate spree:install --migrate=false --sample=false --seed=false
If you want to perform these tasks later, you can use these commands.
bundle exec rake railties:install:migrations # installs migrations bundle exec rake db:migrate # runs migrations bundle exec rake db:seed # seeds your database bundle exec rake spree_sample:load # loads sample data
If you use
solidus_auth_devise for user authentication, you can also install
and run its migrations, then seed the database separately:
bundle exec rake solidus_auth:install:migrations # installs solidus_auth_devise migrations bundle exec rake db:migrate # runs solidus_auth_devise migrations bundle exec rake db:seed # seeds your database

includes. You can disable this in your project's
config/environments/development.rb by changing the following configuration
Rails.application.configure do config.assets.debug = false end
You can gain some extra speed by enabling
Solidus admin. First, add the
turbolinks gem to your project's
gem 'turbolinks', '~> 5.0.0'
Then, enable Turbolinks in the backend by appending these lines to the
Note that Turbolinks can break your custom Solidus extensions or other customizations you have made to the Solidus admin. Use Turbolinks at your own risk.
