Thanks and support, Rob! Really – that’s great. That project deserves
to live into the 2.0 times.

I USE IT AND I LOVE IT.
GO ROB GO. GO ROB GO.

This is good news for me. I love the accessibility of InstantRails.

Thanks everyone. If there are things you would like to see please let
me know.

I want to get a new version out with Rails 2.0 as Curt mentioned and
then plan toward Ruby 1.9 once its released.

The one thing that would be really nice would be a pre-configured
version of Subversion bundled. I know the other all in one Rails
stack has that but it would be great to see that packaged with Instant
Rails.

I use Instant Rails as a tool to get other developers in our IT
department interested in Ruby and Rails development and there is
nothing like having an easy installation of all the key components
available to them so they don’t get frustrated and can hit the ground
running.

Excellent news that IR will live on.

Nathan,

Thank you for the input. I will keep these in mind and see what
others feel they need as well.

I can say Ruby and Rails, along with MySQL will be key pieces in
upcoming releases along with maintaining any existing software in
Instant Rails… As you know, you can always add your own gems to your
Instant Rails instance anyway. I was thinking Capistrano myself.

Just wanted to chime in! Thanks so much for your efforts to keep Instant
Rails alive. I use it every day for development and I was really unhappy
that we were going to lost it.

Here is what I would like to see:

  • Ruby 1.8.6 (and then 1.9)
  • Rails 2.0.1
  • Latest MySQL
  • RMagick Gem
  • json_pure Gem
  • Mocha Gem
  • Mongrel
  • Capistrano 2.1

This is my basic must-have list that I always hoped would be part of
Instant Rails out of the box.

WE LOVE ROB. WE LOVE ROB.
ya, Capistrano would rule.

Please give Rob your thanks and support!

Thanks Rob!

That project deserves to live into the 2.0 times.

FYI, I’ve been using Instant Rails 1.7 and already successfully
upgraded it to Rails 2.0.1 (after upgrading gem to avoid the well-
known Zlib errors on Windoze)

Great news!!! I totally agree with Nathan regarding what to include
in Instant Rails!

Best regards, Ricardo Sazima

I looked at the tortisesvn. It looks cool, and I like it.
It does require installation. Instant-rails does not.
I would think to put CAPISTRANO with INSTANT-RAILS,

The problem will come in, is when, somebody says “do you do
CAPISTRANO”, you had better say, ‘YES, I certainly do!’.

I like the feedback and will take it all into consideration. I want
to get those things in there that make the most sense, the ones with
the most hands raised.

I think Capistrano would be a good one for sure.

I am planning on compiling a list and asking for assistance from the
community as to the importance of each.

Thank you.
