Downloading Ruby on Rails on Mac


#1

Hey guys, I am really brand new to computer programming and I have
watched
numerous videos on “where to start programming” and “what language to
learn
first” etc. I watched a video and it talked about how Ruby on Rails was
the
best language (Ruby) to learn first. I am just wanting to know how to
download Ruby on Rails on Mac OS X 10.9.3. If you guys could help me out
that would be awesome! Thanks!

I believe that railstutorial.org has instructions for installing on
OSX (in fact I think the author uses that). As a beginner I suggest
you actually work right through that tutorial (which is free to use
online), then you should understand the basics of Rails.

Great links. I wonder if this list could be setup so that the above
appears on the list home page and new subscribers are automatically
sent that it in an introductory email. That might save us some time
repeatedly responding to the same questions.

Or like a monthly FAQ mailing?

Would that work? Those already subscribed don’t need it every month,
and a new user would not see it immediately so would still ask his/her
question. Unless it was automatically sent to new users of course.

Does whoever manages the list watch it here?

The RailsBridge InstallFest [1] and Introduction to Rails [2] tutorial
documents are pretty good at exactly this sort of thing: getting your
development environment installed and run through of a simple Rails app
to
get you going. These are the scripts we use during the live RailsBridge
events, but I think they’re quite useful in a stand-alone way as well.

Hartl’s RailsTutorial, as mentioned by Colin, is the most comprehensive
set
of tutorials for Rails going at the moment.

This question gets asked a lot, I mean, seriously, a lot. I put up
my
immediate response at [3], but there’s a better one at [4], and if
becoming
a web developer is your goal, the Odin Project [5] has sorted out a lot
of
stuff to follow.
