## Setup instructions

### Install Ruby and Rails
To develop for Schedules, it is required that you have an up-to-date versions of Ruby and Rails installed. Soon, development will switch to using Docker, but for now, use [this installation guide]( to get started.  

### Clone the schedules workspace
We're first going to clone down a copy of the schedules codebase from [](,
the SRCT code respository, with SSH.

**a)** Configure your ssh keys by following the directions at:


**b)** Now, on your computer, navigate to the directory in which you want to download the project (ie. perhaps one called `development/SRCT`), and run

    git clone

Run `cd schedules/` to enter the cloned directory, and `cd schedules/` once more to enter the Rails environment.

### Install dependencies
To install the project dependencies, run the `bundle install` command.  

### Database
To populate your local database, run `rake db:migrate:seed`. This sets up your local database and loads it with data from the Excel speadsheet(s) of GMU courses. **NOTE:** This may take a while!

### Development server
To start a local development server, run the `rails server` command. The server should now be available at `localhost:3000`.
