Spark Starter Kit

Circle CI Maintainability

This is a starting point for all Spree/Rails related projects at Spark Solutions, it contains:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Spree Commerce
  • Webpack via Webpacker gem
  • React with Redux


Install required tools and dependencies

Run setup script



Running rails console

docker-compose run web rails c

Running tests

Before running the test suite remember to fire up docker-compose (if it's not running already):

docker-compose run web bash

And after that you can just use plain normal rspec:

bundle exec rspec

Adding new gems

Update Gemfile and run:

bundle install
docker-compose build

You will need to restart the server if running:

docker-compose restart

Updating gems

bundle update spree
docker-compose build



  • Spree - Spree-specific models, controllers, services
  • SparkStarterKit - all custom-made models, controllers, services specifically for SparkStarterKit application

Using Dependencies system

Rather than writing decorators for Services please use dependency injecton.

Spree Decorators

All decorators should use Module.prepend pattern.

  1. Controllers

    Place them in app/controllers/spark_starter_kit/spree/home_controller_decorator.rb, eg.

    module SparkStarterKit
      module Spree
        module HomeControllerDecorator
          # ...
  2. Models

    Place them in app/models/spark_starter_kit/spree/product_decorator.rb, eg.

    module SparkStarterKit
      module Spree
        module ProductDecorator
          # ...
