Ruby On Rails For Mac Os

admin

We recommend Ruby 2.2 or newer for use with Rails. Rails requires Ruby 1.9.3 or newer.

I have downloaded Lion and looking to install Ruby on Rails I have been scanning the web for a way to do this but can't seem to find a easy way, could anyone point me in the correct direction. RubyMine- Best IDE for Ruby (Commercial Version) RubyMine is a full featured IDE for Ruby. 1 In your browser, go to Atom Installer and click the Download for Mac button. Atom is a free, powerful code editor that can be used for programming many different computer languages. It works well with Ruby. Depending on the settings of your browser, the Atom download archive may automatically uncompress or a zip file may be placed in your Downloads folder. This note assumes that Ruby on Rails has already been properly installed and the purpose is to replace the default DB engine SQLite with PostgreSQL. Install PostgreSQL As shown in the official Postgres download instructions here, there are few ways of installing PostgreSQL on Mac OS.

Source: Compile it yourself
Windows installer: Ruby, popular extensions, editor
OS X 10.5+: Included with developer tools
(then do gem update rails)

We recommend managing your Ruby installation through rbenv. It’s an easy way to run multiple versions for different applications and update when a new release is made.

With Ruby installed, you can install all of Rails and its dependencies through RubyGems on the command line:

New versions of Rails can be installed the same way.

Create your application skeleton and start the server:

You’re running Ruby on Rails! Follow the instructions on http://localhost:3000.

TextMate on OS X has long been the favored Rails editor, but the classic editors are still going strong. See VIM for Rails and Emacs for Rails. For a full-on IDE, check out JetBrains RubyMine.

Ruby On Rails For Mac Os

I've been ignoring Ruby on Rails for a while now. Oh, I knew I'd have to look at it sooner or later, but you know the old saying about old dogs and new tricks. You may have also seen a dog or two being dragged across a floor when they didn't want to go somewhere; that's pretty much the image you should have of me and Ruby on Rails.

The July 2006 issue of Linux Journal has been kicking around the edges of my desk for a few days. Part of the reason I had been pushing it aside is that the cover theme is Ruby, Ruby, Ruby. 'Fahh, fahh, fahh', I grumbled to myself as I once again moved this issue somewhere where it couldn't stare at me with that accusatory 'you haven't even OPENED me' look.

Last night, sometime after we had eaten dinner and before settling on the porch with a Corona, I picked up the magazine and started thumbing through it. I read the letters, perused 'diff -u', skipped 'At the Forge' and 'Cooking with Linux', and then thumbed to Reuven Lerner's 'Introduction to Ruby'.I probably made a face as I started reading, but then..

Hey, this isn't so bad. Mac OS X 10.4 has ruby and irb (interactive ruby) installed by default, so I was able to just type 'irb' and follow along with the examples. Hmm.. I'm starting to like this 'ruby' thing. Suddenly I don't feel like I'm being dragged across the floor trying to dig my nails into linoleum. No, this dog likes Ruby! Give me more!

So what the heck: let's go for the Rails! I found hivelogic.com/articles/2005/12/01/ruby_rails_lighttpd_mysql_tiger(link dead, sorry)Building Ruby, Rails, LightTPD, and MySQL on Tiger, which is an excellent guide to getting this all installed. One minor glitch: I had some trouble with Ruby Gems. Unfortunately,I'm not sure what finally got it working, but ultimately it started behaving. I tried installing it manually, but couldn't get by a 'No such file to load -- rubygems (LoadError)'.The Hivelogic docs mention that and say it's a PATH problem, but that wasn't the case for me. I did some web searching and found that Ruby can be quite confused as to what the real problem is when it gives this error, but I still couldn't nail it down. Because I was multitasking while investigating this, I had gone ahead and installed MySQL; strangely it seems that Gems started working after that.. I can't imagine why.

Anyway, the final step was to have Rails create a skeleton app. I did 'rails try_rails; cd try_rails; ruby script/server' and then pointed Firefox at https://localhost:3000 - and there it was, Ruby on Rails up and running and ready for me to use.

Well, it's ready. I'm not. I have quite a bit more reading and futzing about to do before I can do anything useful or fun.But at least it's all installed, and I have a reason to read more of this month's Linux Journal.
