Last week I made my first attempt to get rails installed and up and running on my Mac via the instructions on Rails website.
DID NOT WORK.
I had sooo much trouble until a friend of mine pointed me in a new direction. So I thought I would share the steps that I took to get rails and Git source control up and running with a fully working application shell in under 15 minutes.
Step 1: Install Homebrew – http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/
Step 2: Install RVM – http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/
Step 3: Follow instruction in Chapter 1.2 from Railstutorial.org – http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ruby-on-rails-tutorial-book#sec:up_and_running
Easy as that!!
If your interested in learning rails, I would seriously suggest taking this route to geet you started and ready to code.
