Spree Redirects Build Status

Spree Redirects adds an interface for redirecting old urls to new ones. It's for when you replace an existing site with a shiny new spree site and want to avoid broken links and broken hearts.

To get a better idea of what it does, just follow the Demo instructions below…


Install spree_redirects by adding the following to your existing spree site's Gemfile:

gem 'spree_redirects', '0.2.0'

Or if you want to track the git repo, add this instead:

gem 'spree_redirects', :git => 'git://github.com/citrus/spree_redirects.git'

Now bundle up:


Then run the generator which copies the migration template into your project:

rails g spree_redirects:install

Migrate your database:

rake db:migrate

And boot up your server:

rails s

You should now be up and running at http://localhost:3000!


Clone this repo to where you develop, bundle up and run dummier to get the show started:

git clone git://github.com/citrus/spree_redirects.git
cd spree_redirects
bundle install
bundle exec dummier

This will generate a fresh rails app in test/dummy, install spree_core & spree_redirects, then migrate the test database. Sweet.

Now just run the tests with:

bundle exec rake


You can easily use the test/dummy app as a demo of spree_redirects. Just cd to where you develop and run:

git clone git://github.com/citrus/spree_redirects.git
cd spree_redirects
cp test/dummy_hooks/after_migrate.rb.sample test/dummy_hooks/after_migrate.rb
bundle install
bundle exec dummier
cd test/dummy
rails s

Now log into the admin, click the 'Configuration' tab, then click 'Manage Redirects'. Try adding a redirect for /shop.php that points to /products, then visit http://localhost:3000/shop.php. You should be redirected to /products.


So far it's just me; Spencer Steffen.
