Treehouse Poker: A Rails and TDD demo

I wanted to share a project I created to help me practice TDD with Ruby/Rails. The project is a poker game which deals cards to 5 players and scores the winning hand.

I created a custom Treehouse card skins which are also included in the project. The source Photoshop (PSD) files are high res, so you can print them out on business card stock and hash out your TDD in the physical world.

Fork, share, and enjoy!

Note: I'm not affiliated with Treehouse, this is a personal project I'm sharing. Please direct any questions to me.

It should work, can you be more specific about the problem?

I think James means is there a working demo we can view without running the script on our local machine to see what it looks like.

Ah, my mistake.

I'm sorry, I don't have a live working demo available right now. You will need to run the project to view it.

Okay no problem. Have you looked at Heroku? They have a good free plan that will allow you to host your project as a working demo for Treehouse members to checkout :D

Good work looks like a good project!

Thanks.

I'll check out Heroku. I was having ssh problems with Heroku before and never got it resolved. I'll try again when I get some spare time.

To be honest, there's not a lot to learn from interacting with the application itself. I would encourage people to fork the repo and explore the code & commits. Feedback is appreciated, but not expected.

Best regards, Ed
