Equivalent of Instant Rails in Mac


#1

Hi all,

I have written full ERP Accounting application TooLERP - The Best Small Business ERP
Accounting Software
. I am using Instant Rails to make it available
to windows users. I was wondering if there is an equivalent software
on Mac also? I have heard that Mac OS X comes pre installed with Ruby
on Rails.

For lower versions (Tiger) you can install Locomotive and start using
Rails Apps. Has someone used it? How hard is it ? Please share your
expriences.

Regards,

Try bitnami ruby stack

You might try the Ruby & Rails Developer Bundle from EnterpriseDB
(basically Rails + PostgreSQL stack)

My approach to the same problem for my app (Open Campground) has been to
distribute it as a frozen app both in InstantRails and otherwise. When
frozen you will not depend on Rails or your gems being installed on the
target system. You will just have to have Ruby and the database which
simplifies things a lot.

Have not had any installs on Mac OS but it should work there also.
