RubySource: Rails Development 101: RVM

By Glenn Goodrich



This post marks the first in a series to help you start from nothing and end with a Rails application. Although there are many posts/series on this subject, I feel like basic Rails tutorials, especially in the wake of Rails 3.1 changes, fall into a more-the-merrier category. Even so, this series will focus on setting things up in a proper manner (for those systems that support it) and will fly a little lower than the typical 50,000 foot level of many tutorials. Here are the items you will have learned by the end of the series: Setting up Ruby Version Manager (RVM) to maintain sandboxed development environments Installing Ruby 1.9.2 Installing Rails 3.1 Creating a rails application What Rails IDEs exist, and their pros/cons Creating a resource for your application to create/retrieve/update/delete Modifying a view template What to do next This series ends where a lot of single post series end, but my goal is to make sure that you have much more information when you get to the end
