Getting started creating Turbine Ruby Data Applications has just gotten easier with the init support for Ruby!

Since Turbine Ruby is currently in Developer Preview, to participate, you'd need to sign up here and a member of our team will follow up to discuss the steps to get the feature enabled.

Once you've been granted access, simply install Meroxa CLI v2.12.0 and run meroxa apps init my-ruby-app-name --lang ruby --path path/to/my-ruby-app to generate an example application.

Upon running this command, a directory named my-ruby-app-name will be created in the indicated path (path/to/my-ruby-app).

The content of the directory will include:

my-ruby-app-name
โ”œโ”€โ”€ Gemfile
โ”œโ”€โ”€ app.json
โ”œโ”€โ”€ app.rb
โ””โ”€โ”€ fixtures
โ””โ”€โ”€ demo.json

Install the necessary dependencies with: bundle install.

You can run the application locally with: meroxa apps run.

$ meroxa apps run
got records: [#<TurbineRb::Record:0x00000001005da038 @key="1", @timestamp=<Google::Protobuf::Timestamp: seconds: -62135596800, nanos: 0>, @value={"message"=>"hello"}>]
+---------------------------------------+
| Destination demopg/collection_archive |
+-----------------+---------------------+
| INDEX | RECORD |
+-----------------+---------------------+
| 0 | {"message":"hello"} |
+-----------------+---------------------+
| RECORDS WRITTEN | 1 |
+-----------------+---------------------+

After building your desired data application, you can deploy it to Meroxa with: meroxa apps deploy.
