Ruby on rails first app creating problem

HI Guys
I started to learn ruby on rails, i used http://railsinstaller.org/ to
get
all the stuffs i need and check it up the ruby,rails,bundler and gem
version in cmd to be sure everything is fine.
then i tried to create my first app using “rails new firstapp” and this
message appears.

Rails on windows has given me nothing but trouble and is a general pain
in
the ass.

Please post the entire error message.

While you can develop in Windows, most developers I know use Mac or
Ubuntu. If you want to get serious about Rails development, consider
switching.

Yes. you wont find any performance issues between a MAC and UBUNTU. But
i
personally like MAC :slight_smile:

You can easily use debian or Archlinux on a virtual machine on windows
with virtualbox. Forget windows with rails.

thanks for reply, is ubuntu fine for rails developing?

Yeah, if you can’t seem to set up an Ubuntu virtual machine or you’re
unable to get a Mac, I’d recommend jumping on one of the many online
services… To name a couple:

  • https://www.nitrous.io - Jump on the free plan.
  • https://www.digitalocean.com - For about $5 a month, you could have
    your
    own online dev server. Just make sure you turn off your server when not
    developing with it so you’re server isn’t used for someone’s malicious
    agenda.

Personally, I would recommend Digital Ocean or a similar service so you
have the experience of working with the command line and using ssh.

Hope that helps bud!

Vagrant+Virtual Box is a nice option for a windows development
environment.

I use OSx at my office and windows at home.
On both machines, I run Rails on a vagrant box with Ubuntu.

There’s a good tutorial here:
