Coming soon page for your Rails application


Soonish is the quick and easy way to get a beautiful coming soon page up and running for your next Ruby on Rails application.


Include the gem in your Gemfile.

gem 'soonish'

Run bundle install to install the gem.

Run the install script to copy over the views and migrations for the engine.

rails generate soonish:install


By default Soonish will be mounted to the root of your application. You can change the URL where the page will be shown by modifying your routes. If you wanted your coming soon page to be displayed at /soon you would change your routes to the following.

mount Soonish::Engine, at: '/soon'

If you only want the coming soon page displayed for a specific environment you can do the follow in your routes.rb file.

if Rails.env == 'production'
  mount Soonish::Engine, at: '/'
  root :to => 'welcome#index'

You can modify the content of the pages by editing the following files


To turn off your coming soon page just comment out or delete the line in your routes.rb which is mounting the Soonish engine.
