Ratpack project template

You have just created a basic Groovy Ratpack application. It doesn't do much at this point, but we have set you up with a standard project structure, a Guice back Registry, simple home page, and Spock for writing tests (because you'd be mad not to use it).

In this project you get:

  • A Gradle build file with pre-built Gradle wrapper
  • A tiny home page at src/ratpack/templates/index.html (it's a template)
  • A routing file at src/ratpack/Ratpack.groovy
  • Reloading enabled in build.gradle
  • A standard project structure:
    <proj>
      |
      +- src
          |
          +- ratpack
          |     |
          |     +- Ratpack.groovy
          |     +- ratpack.properties
          |     +- public // Static assets in here
          |          |
          |          +- images
          |          +- lib
          |          +- scripts
          |          +- styles
          |
          +- main
          |   |
          |   +- groovy
                   |
                   +- // App classes in here!
          |
          +- test
              |
              +- groovy
                   |
                   +- // Spock tests in here!

That's it! You can start the basic app with

./gradlew run

but it's up to you to add the bells, whistles, and meat of the application.
