on the development dependencies install guide page,
would it be a good idea to let the user specify their OS type before seeing the setup instructions ?
ie. rather than giving the commands for all the OS types - one after the other
2.4.2 MySQL and PostgreSQL
To be able to run the suite for MySQL and PostgreSQL we need their gems. Install first the servers, their client libraries, and their development files.
On OS X, you can run:
$ brew install mysql
$ brew install postgresql
Follow the instructions given by Homebrew to start these.
In Ubuntu just run:
$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server libmysqlclient15-dev
$ sudo apt-get install postgresql postgresql-client postgresql-contrib libpq-dev
The suggestion is that, show all the OS types by default. But let the user specify their OS type to filter quickly.
A script which the user can download and just run, will also be nice
