Running a Ruby on Rails Application



Hi there,

I am trying to run an existing Ruby on Rails project that exists on Github. I’ve forked the application, and then cloned the fork onto a C9 space. I have installed the bundles and run their setup file. I have entered the command “rails server” to start up the server and it says:

=> Booting Puma
=> Rails 5.1.4 application starting in development
=> Run rails server -h for more startup options
Puma starting in single mode…

  • Version 3.10.0 (ruby 2.4.2-p198), codename: Russell’s Teapot
  • Min threads: 5, max threads: 5
  • Environment: development
  • Listening on tcp://localhost:8080
    Use Ctrl-C to stop

Giving me the impression it is listening and working. I clicked “Run application” button at top, and clicked the link to see the application but it says no application is running.

I am not very experienced with Ruby on Rails so no questions are too obvious if you think you can help me.

Thank you
