Please do yourself a favor and wait – unless it’s okay to wipe your data every now and then (and I’m serious about this – this isn’t maintainer-sprek for “it’s really unstable”. It’s actually quite stable! But you will need to reset your database eventually.)

The reason is the following: the database schema is still pretty much in flux, and instead of adding more and more Rails database migrations for every little change I make, I currently still work with the original migrations, which is a complete no-go in large-team and/or already-live projects, but neither is IndiePants already live, nor is a large team working on it. \o/

If you want to give it a try, the bundled heroku_bootstrap script is probably the fastest way to get it up and running (well, on Heroku), but please only do this if you want to see if the code is real (it is.) You will lose your data, and possibly your sanity.

We’re about to move into a new apartment, which is going to occupy a major part of my spare time over the next ~5 weeks, so progress will a bit slower than it has been recently. I’m hoping to be able to launch the new Pants some time May-ish.
