Is there an "official" rails installation process for Mac (O

Hi,

Just got a Mac and there seems to be a number of methods of installing
Rails. Is there an “official” rails installation process for Mac (OSX)
??? I can’t seem to find such advice/recommendation.

Tks

I would check out Locomotive.

The easy way is Locomotive.
http://locomotive.raaum.org/

If you want to install everything separately, you can follow these
instructions:

which basically will send you to http://hivelogic.com/narrative/
articles/ruby_rails_lighttpd_mysql_tiger

As long as you update your OS X to be current, you should be fine.

tks - sounds like Locomotive would suite me well - Greg

mind if I also ask what the standard (popular) development front end
setup
is? i.e. webbrick, apache, lighty?, mongrel? Is there a combination
that
works particularly well on Mac that I should go for?

If you like compiling from source you can check out my post on the
subject
(basically an up to date version of the hivelogic article, but adds some
additional things like rmagick, etc.)
