Poll: Which distro do you use for Rails/Ruby development?


#1

Good afternoon,
I’ve two quick questions for the Ruby/Rails community.

  1. Do you use Linux for Ruby or Rails development?

  2. If you use Linux, which distro do you normally use to develop?

Thank you for your input. :slight_smile:

Windows, although as soon as I scrape some extra cash together I plan on
getting a Mac.

Never thought I’d hear myself saying that!

I use CentOS as a development platform with RadRails running on a
Windows XP work station.

I have also installed a full ruby (1.8.4 RC1) + rails (1.1) that I run
under cygwin (because cygwin gives me a real shell under Windows) on my
laptop. I didn’t tried with the cygwin version of ruby but I should…

    Mac for development. Linux for hosting.

hehe… Trust me… You will love using TextMate and iTerm for
development. It absolutely rocks.

But for jokes… Here is a chart of what to expect.

But in reality. Switching to Mac those 2 years ago was the best thing
that ever happened to me. I love not having to spend 10% of my
personal time just keeping Windows working and virus free.

I had a small working app with three models and one controller. I
decided to add a table_name_prefix to the tables because I am
planning to deploy to a shared hosting environment where multiple
rails apps will use the same database.

I added this to config/environment.rb:

ActiveRecord::Base.table_name_prefix = ‘teemss2_’

I deleted the existing tables and the file db/schema.rb and ran rake
migrate again. Doing rake

I now have the same set of tables in the db with a prefix on their
names BUT when I try and execute a controller

database name: teemss2_development
table_name_prefix: teemss2_
table name: activities

I would think that Active Record should be trying to load:

teemss2_development.teemss2_activities

Instead it is trying to load:

teemss2_development.activities

which doesn’t exist.

I’m sure I shouldn’t have to refer to the actual table_name_prefix in
my controllers. In fact I don’t see how I can.

I’ve been looking at the rails source for clues and I’ll try a simple
smaple app from scratch using table_name_prefix to see if the
controllers work and what if any differences I can find.

Here the stack trace:

Instead here
Mysql::Error: #42S02Table ‘teemss2_development.activities’ doesn’t
exist: SHOW FIELDS FROM activities

hehe… Even though MacOS is much simpler in use than Windows, it is a
bit of a shock moving into it. You keep looking for the start button.

If you wait till the 1st of june you can get ubuntu dapper. Comes with a
new gedit that has snippets support and a plugin engine(big potential ie
svn). And with xgl/compiz you’ll see all the effects that make osx
pretty like it is.
