ROR books seem to be out of date

i am trying to get started on ROR but the texts all seem to be out of
as regards samples that wont run on later IDEs such as aptana studio
,rubymine and so on.github examples are also out of date and wont run.
beginning Rails3 samples appear to also not able to run ,even using
examples .
ruby on rails for dummies is unusable as the IDE radrails is a later
version without the helpfull tabs , also the less is more interface on
aptana studio makes it difficult.
the only progress i can make is using the command line but again samples
wont run when i use them from the ROR books .
i suspect the problem is later versions of the rails and gems s/w.

No one is going to be able to even confirm your suspicions without
your providing actual information.

What “texts”? What “examples”? What versions of Rails, gem, etc.
are you trying to use? What problems are you having? Saying that
some code “won’t run” is a waste of everyone’s time.

You seem to be complaining about the IDEs more than RoR. Give us some
details and we might be able to help you.

You can following this book

I am on chapter 7 now. Everything seems good. I am using Rails 3.2.8
Ruby 1.9.3

I did have problems with Rails 3 in action, on chapter 8. Couldn’t get
scope to work. Either that or rspec didn’t work. Here is my post:

routing errors all the time ,cant get past the welcome sign running on
rails .
in win7 and ubuntu systems
latest gems and ruby of course .
tried everything i can think of using all the books and online material.
nothing past localhost:3000 seems to work ,i just get the routing error
despite checking all the code with the examples .
application controllers look ok ,apps files ok, .erb files ok .route
ok ,public index file deleted
i have plowed thru all the relevant book examples cross checking them to
find an error but i cant .

this is a common message

Routing Error

No route matches [GET] “/hello/world”

Post the url you are trying, the full error message, post routes.rb
and the output of rake routes.

No-one here is telepathic as far as I am aware.


Without knowing what you routing file looks like no one can help you.

Type ‘rake routes’ and see what routes have been defined
