The textilize method


#1

I saw the guy in the 15 min blog video calling a method called textilize
however when i call it rails says it cant find this method. Is this
somehting extra i have to install to ruby… like a gem or somehting


#2

Yes, go to command line, and on windows type:

gem install redcloth

on Unix/Linux/OS X type:

sudo gem install redcloth

Then restart your development server, and you should be ready to go.

It makes you root (superuser). It should have asked for a password,
except if you were already root.
