Setup hanami with postgresql

hanami web framework is a new ruby framework for developing web applications. I’ve been following the guides at but I want to use postgresql as the database and rspec as the testing framework. Here are the steps I did:

hanami new bookshelf --database postgresql --test rspec
bundle install

Create a database for development and test environment.

sudo su - postgres
createuser --pwprompt username # change 'username' to your username createdb -O usernamebookshelf_hanami_development
createdb -O username bookshelf_hanami_test

Edit .development and .test environment config files


Prepare database.

hanami db prepare

Start developing!
