    Ruby on Rails running on Leopard?

    Hey!

    I'm a fairly knowledgeable web developer but I've just bought myself a MacBook with Leopard and I want to get started with Ruby on Rails (I know it's built-in )

    What I don't know is how to work and set it up so I can Code it, save it and then run it all locally on my system.

    Hope you can tell me some beginners guides or post some links to some good guides.

    Thanks

    It's relatively quick and painless on Leopard.

    If you want to upgrade to Rails 2: sudo gem install rails

    With the latest Rails install, developing on SQLite is ready to go by default, so at that point just go to your development directory and tap out: rails appname. Then cd into that directory (cd appname), and run script/server and you can then access your app at localhost:3000. Then you're good to go and start developing.

    A lot of the classic Rails tutorials were written for Rails 1.x or earlier and Rails 2 has introduced significant changes to the way Rails operates internally (RESTful routes).

    The following looks to be a well-written tutorial on Rails 2 that might assist.

    Thanks, I've got it working. Just received my invitation to Heroku so I might start coding with that. I'm not sure yet.


    Thanks anyway,
    ChrisGilmore
