How do you auto-start your Rails Development Environment?

Hi,

I’m keen in understanding & seeing scripts (applescripts?) for how most
RoR
developers auto-start their environment? [Mac OS X]

Currently I’m:

  • starting Locomotive
  • using this to trigger iTerm sessions (as it sets up the rails paths
    for
    me)
  • iTerm1: server
  • iTerm2: tail -f log
  • iTerm3: autotest (continuous integration - lite)
  • iTerm4: general for Rails/Rake commands
  • using Locomotive trigger startup of TextMate in my project area
  • startup CocoMySql + open connection to database + choose my test
    database

Obviously I want to cut down / automate this so it all happens at once.

Any suggestions / applescript examples etc would be great. Questions
that
come to mind for me:
Q1 - Dropping use of Locomotive - I need to research/find out how to
launch
iTerm sessions and set-up required Rails/Ruby environment variables
myself
so I don’t become reliant on Locomotive. Perhaps I will need to
install a
non-Locomotive version of Rails as a starter?
Q2 - Learn how to applescript starting up multiple iTerm sessions? Any
code
examples available from people?
Q3 - Starting up Textmate via applescript (hopefully should be able to
work
this on out quickly)
Q4 - Starting up CocoMySql via applescript (hopefully should be able to
work
this on out quickly)

Thanks in advance
Greg
