Instant Rails Replacement?

Is there a standalone (non-installable) way to get Ruby to run?
Instant Rails hasnt been updated in a long time. I dont have access to
install Ruby at work, but I want to learn it in my free time. So if
there is something similar to Xampp for Ruby that would be great.

Thanks.

Hi Frank,

I suggest you check out Heroku http://heroku.com/

which is one of the lowest effort ways to learn. They used to have a
web
version of a Ruby environment.

I’ve been using that along with the tutorial, but I wanted to have a
version offline so I can modify files (read, write, load, require)

I can suggest the packages of One-Click Installer, that are 7zip
based:

http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/

Those can be extracted anywhere and add the PATH to command prompt
window for you to gain access to Ruby without installation.

If you need to install gems that requires compilation, you can also
grab the development kit and extract it over the folder you unpacked
Ruby before.

You can find more resources about it here:

http://wiki.github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/tutorials

Of course, this is Ruby, there is no MySQL or apache bundled, but will
be enough for you to get started with Ruby.

FYI: RubyInstaller == One-Click Installer.

Step 1: Unpack JRuby
Step 2: Run JRuby

(needs a JVM installed, but that’s usually not a problem)

I also put JRuby “bin” directory in my path and I set a JRUBY_HOME
environment variable.
