Ruby on Rails

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 1.8.6.25
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.

    I have quiet a few java enthusiasts turned to RoR fans at my end too.
    Am a part of the mangospring team (www.mangospring.com) and we are working quiet extensively on RoR.Infact guess we are one of the very few companies in India doing end to end product development on RoR.
