rake db:setup
⛔ WARNING: Sidekiq testing API enabled, but this is not the test environment.  Your jobs will not go to Redis.
rake aborted!
ActiveRecord::NoDatabaseError: FATAL:  database "loomio_development" does not exist

It's loading the rails app through environment.rb and failing in models/membership.rb on `update_counter_cache` . Not sure why it won't create the db first..

Hi @Alan, how about if you run:

createdb loomio_development
