So I’m pretty new to Ruby and I really like the idea of it and the
syntax and all of that joy. But I’m having trouble getting up and
running. I got Ruby 1.8.6 installed thanks to
That was easy. But I did a lot I didn’t exactly understand what I was
doing, to give you an idea of where I’m at.
I want to get eruby or erubis working with my local dev apache
install. This is not the install that came with OS X, but with using
MAMP (www.mamp.info). It’s what I use for all of my development in
PHP, which I have been doing for several years now, though not all on
my shiny new mac. So here are my questions:
- What do I need to do to get eRuby or Erubis working with Apache?
- Since I will be eventually moving what I write to a shared hosting
solution, would there be any compatibility dangers of using Erubis?
- How common is it for shared hosting solutions to have eRuby or
compatible setup or how hard is it get them to do that?
- Is there anything I should know about developing web apps in Ruby
when coming from PHP?
Also, I’m not interested in Rails yet. I want to learn Ruby first and
go from there.
I’ve already searched high and low for these answers without much
luck, only small clues. I hope I’m not being terribly annoying asking
this seemingly basic questions.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
