Hey Guys out there,

i have the idea to make an shell via website in rails, like the tryruby
thing. But not to only execute ruby commands. I want it to be like the
system shell an execute commands like in the shell of the system itself.
I have read that i can execute commands, but to get the output completly
seems not quite easy.

You mean you want to use SSH to connect to servers?

No. I want to install ruby and rails on these servers. It would be
something like console redirect, but that donw´t work. So i want it make
in software to get something like an shell. The Core is to execute all
commands avaible in the shell an get all outpout from these things. So
an generelly aproach where fantastic, but others ideas to aproach this
would be great!

Greetings Kaji

You want to build a server administration tool using Ruby on Rails - so
the tool would have a web-based GUI?
Is that it?
