I am now making use of the InstantRails package that has everything:
Ruby, Gem, Rails, Apache, Phpmyadmin, mySql, plus RadRails with some
- First, I install InstantRails to the folder D:\InstantRails,
- Next, I install Ruby1.8.4 into the folder D:\InstantRails\Ruby,
- And then I install Rails using command
â??Gem install rails â??remoteâ?
- Next I install MySQL 5.0 into D:\Program Files\MySQL\
- Then I delete the contents of D:\InstantRails\MySQL and move similar
contents from mySQL 5.0 folders to D:\InstantRails\MySQL
- As some file couldnâ??t be moved, I re-install the mySql 5.0, using
- I also amend the â??use_ruby.cmdâ? and save it into D:\Windows\System32
Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin;%PATH%
- After that I install RadRails into D:\InstantRails\
- And also set the Ruby Interpreter and Rdoc and Ri as Curt suggested
With this combination, I can now use the latest versions of Ruby, Rails,
and MySQL, and at the same time, make use of RadRails, and with it
Webrick, and Apache, and phpMyAdmin.
So I can use command line codes, migration codes, and also GUI.
I think I would stick to these for a while, at least at the development
stage When I come to the production stage, I would learn to install the
other software packages.

Let’s say I adopt the sqlite.
What other packages do I need?
yes if you use radrails
not neccesary (use ues webbrick or mongrel, it’s mudh simpler)
SQLite Database Browser
(unfortunatly for sqlite/radrails/windows there is no easy to installl
driver for the integrated radrails database browser, but you can browse
objects directly via console, it’s kind of commandline, super simple,
will love it)
Trolltech’s QT (Not free)
why do you think you need need that ?
