After long hesitation, I tried installing Ruby on Rails and to wet my hands with some Rapid Web application development with Rails. As noted in various web articles and documents on web – installation and configuration is very smooth.
1. Download the Ruby installer for Windows from here. I had downloaded version 188.8.131.52
2. Once Ruby is installed, we can use gem to download & install rails framework.
gem install rails –include-dependencies
This works. I am not sure what is gem yet. I understand its some sort of packager and installer for ruby platform. But not sure how it works yet. Once rails available on my ruby platform, I just need to use some simple commands to create working web application in mins.
Looks very interesting at first look.
