Duplicate RoR applications?

Hi,

I have a simple question for when ruby on rails, say I want to create
two apps and I am currently working on one but essentially the other app
will need exactly the same things up to this stage can I just duplicate
the folder which contains all the files and use it again?

Thanks in advance

Sure, but you do need to consider changing your db names, otherwise you
will
be hitting the same one. Also, if you do not use git, consider using it
as
it can help, and you can fork and branch repos… as well you want to
consider maintenance – will there be shared aspects of the two apps
which
you really just want to update once rather on each instance every time
you
have to make a change…

Probably more than you wanted to hear, but basically, yes, you can dup
the
folder and run from there.

Thanks alot
