Some notes installing the "spree_fancy" theme for spree eCommerce

Note: The operating system is Linux Fedora Core 20
Note: This was performed on a rails app called "shop"

I started by adding a new line to the Gemfile using the emacs editor

edit the Gemfile:

user$ cd /home/<username>/rails/shop
user$ emacs Gemfile

A line was added below the other spree lines see the line in red below

gem 'spree', '2.4.3'
gem 'spree_gateway', github: 'spree/spree_gateway', branch: '2-4-stable'
gem 'spree_auth_devise', github: 'spree/spree_auth_devise', branch: '2-4-stable'
gem 'spree_fancy', github: 'spree/spree_fancy', branch: '2-4-stable'

Then the following:

user$ bundle install --deployment
user$ bundle exec rails g spree_fancy:install

This created a couple of errors where I had to edit a couple of files - then:

user$ bundle install --no-deployment
user$ rails s

Take a look at the new store (image coming soon...)

Uninstall spree fancy:

Simply reverse what you did:

user$ bundle exec rails destroy spree_fancy:install

Remove the line from the Gemfile - then:

user$ bundle install
