Rails 3 Hello World
The past while I’ve been busy providing technical consultancy to BT and haven’t had much drive to work on anything on my own time. The itch has returned the past couple of weeks though so I thought I’d see what I’ve been missing in the Rails world and in what better way than getting a basic Rails 3 app up and running.
My environment was already setup for Rails 2.3.* and Yehuda Katz' post served as a guide to get me up to speed with the beta loveliness.
RubyGems 1.3.7 along with Thor and Bundler gems required
My installed version of RubyGems was a couple of point releases behind, so I updated that and installed the necessary gems
sudo gem update –system sudo gem install thor bundler
Clone Edge Rails from GitHub
mkdir -p ~/code/rails/rails git clone http://github.com/rails/rails.git ~/code/rails/rails
Generate a fresh app and install dependencies with Bundler
mkdir ~/code/rails/rails-3-demo cd !$ ruby ~/code/rails/rails/bin/rails new . –dev bundle install
Launch the web server
Browse to http://0.0.0.0:3000 and you’re done!
