Volt Introduction and Docs


This guide will take you through creating a basic web application in Volt. This tutorial assumes a basic knowledge of Ruby and web development.


First, let's install Volt and create an empty app. Be sure you have ruby (>2.1.0) and rubygems installed.

Next install the volt gem:

gem install volt

Using the volt gem, we can create a new project:

volt new sample_project

This will setup a basic project in the sample_project folder. We can cd into the folder and run the server:

bundle exec volt server

Lastly, we can access the Volt console with:

bundle exec volt console
