“The Rails Port”
This repository consists of:
- The web site, including user accounts, diary entries, user-to-user messaging
- The XML-based editing API
- The integrated versions of the Potlatch, Potlatch 2 and iD editors
- The Browse pages - a web front-end to the OpenStreetMap data
- The GPX uploads, browsing and API.
A fully-functional Rails Port installation depends on other services, including map tile servers and geocoding services, that are provided by other software. The default installation uses publicly-available services to help with development and testing.
The Rails Port is a Ruby on Rails application that uses PostgreSQL as its database, and has a large number of dependencies for installation. For full details please see INSTALL.md
