1 Bootstrap a rails app with just the use of a Refinery CMS extension like refinerycms-blog
First, bootstrap a new rails application:
$ rails _4.2.6_ new blog_test_app
Put just the refinerycms-blog in your project’s Gemfile:
$ gem "refinerycms-blog", git: "https://github.com/refinery/refinerycms-blog"
This will merely pull in refinerycms-core and refinerycms-settings based on the current gemspec dependencies.
Then you can run:
$ bundle install $ rails generate refinery:cms
And all the other normal set up tasks like migrations.
Now, you should have a Rails app with only the Refinery CMS Blog.
Finally, start your application and enjoy the use of Refinery CMS Blog only:
$ rails server
