ABOUT THE PROJECT
DigGov provides a platform for people to share their opinions about politicians and their political performance. It was my final project for my Masters in Computer Science.
The website application was built using RoR and Bootstrap, which when combined allowing for rapid prototyping. What I like about Rails is that I could use libraries (gems) to speed up the development.
By default, Ruby on Rails uses SQLite for its database management. The application has to use Postgres for its production environment as required by Heroku, but keeping SQLite for the development environment.
