A ready to deploy LocomotiveCMS package.

We at Bitaculous really like LocomotiveCMS, it's our favorite tool for developing websites, it's awesome. That's why we built LocoRoco, so you can easier start using LocomotiveCMS on your server.

If you want to run LocomotiveCMS without setting up a server, check out LocomotiveHosting, a first class hosting solution from the team behind LocomotiveCMS. This also supports the development of LocomotiveCMS.


The team behind LocomotiveCMS for creating LocomotiveCMS.

Sony Computer Entertainment for creating The Real LocoRoco, an awesome platform video game.


At Bitaculous we use the following stack to run LocomotiveCMS, that's why this package is made for:

Getting started

  1. Download the LocoRoco master or a specific release

  2. Unpack the file

  3. Install all dependencies with Bundler

    $ bundle install
  4. Create the application configuration

    Copy resources/config/application.yml to config/application.yml and adjust properly

  5. Start Unicorn

    $ unicorn_rails

That's it, LocomotiveCMS should run on.



Use the rspec bin stub to run the specs:

$ ./bin/rspec

or via Guard:

$ guard -g spec

Spring (Rails application preloader)

$ ./bin/spring status

$ ./bin/spring rspec

$ ./bin/spring start
$ ./bin/spring stop


First deployment

  1. Create configurations

    Copy resources/config/deploy.rb to config/deploy.rb and adjust properly

    Copy resources/config/environments/sample.rb to config/environments/<stage>.rb and adjust properly

    Copy resources/config/deploy/sample.rb to config/deploy/<stage>.rb and adjust properly

    Copy resources/config/unicorn/sample.rb to config/unicorn/<stage>.rb and adjust properly

  2. Setup shared and releases directory on stage

    $ cap <stage> deploy:check:directories
  3. Copy configurations to stage

    Copy config/application.yml to ~shared/config/application.yml (on stage)

    Copy config/environments/<stage>.rb to ~shared/config/environments/<stage>.rb (on stage)

    Copy config/unicorn/<stage>.rb to ~shared/config/unicorn/<stage>.rb (on stage)

  4. Check that the required files and directories exist on stage

    $ cap <stage> deploy:check
  5. Adjust LocomotiveCMS initializer (config/initializers/locomotive.rb).

  6. Adjust CarrierWave initializer (config/initializers/carrierwave.rb) if assets are hosted on Amazon S3 (optional).

  7. Continue with Regular deployment

$ cap <stage> unicorn:stop

Restart Unicorn (USR2 + QUIT)

$ cap <stage> unicorn:restart
