1. Install the gem

gem install decko

Watch carefully for errors! 


2. Create your new decko

Then run...

cd mysite 
decko seed create and seed the database

To fire up the default, built-in WEBrick server, just run:

decko server

...and point your browser to http://localhost:3000 (unless otherwise configured).
