hello everyone, i’m just starting out my adventure on rails with mac osx
and have so far done both the rolling on rails tutorials from onLamp,
and have tinkered around a bit myself playing with scaffold etc.
I downloaded and printed the excellent four days on rails tutorials pdf
and as excited to see that i got to have a play around with the code
that the scaffold generates (as in the onLamp tutorials you don’t get to
see this, you just re-define aspects of it) i was also however, scared
to see that it requires a different version of rails to the version i am
using and wasnt sure how well it would all fare up.
When i first started to get into the idea of developing ror i looke
around for a nice solution to develop in, i concluded that a combination
on textmate / locomotive & terminal was best.
Since starting the four days on rails tutorial however, i have had
nothing but problems, and am starting to think that it is in fact down
to my development enviroment…
So ruby on rails experts (on mac) i’m asking you this:
What is the best set of tools for developing / learning ruby on rails on
mac os x 10.4???
my current list:
locomotive (chose for 1 click set-up)
manual ruby / rails install
mysql 5 (point something)
cocoa mysql (beta) for mysql gui
what do you guys use? what was you learning toolset? why can’t i do this
bloody four days on rails tutorial? (it just wont do script/generate
scaffold category on page 9)
