Ruby on Rails on a Macbook

Hi,

I want to run ror on a macbook. Do I need to update Ruby? Can someone
point me at some (reasonably easy!) guidelines to making a macbook Ruby
on Rails loaded?

Thanks in advance.

This provided all I needed to get started on my mac book:

Thanks for the links. Locomotive looks interesting. Is there any reason
I shouldn't just use it?

I tried Locomotive and it really didn't seem to work so well. Dont know
why? Then I installed, Ruby and Rails as per the instructions, then
console didn't work. But then I installed it with Darwin Ports, now
lifes all good.

I'd recommend Ports for sure.

Weird. Locomotive is about as simple as you can get for Rails development.

Me too. Macports is great. And you can switch to Mongrel/Lighty/Apache/nginx whatever the next great thing is (and this seems to change frequently with rails) at your own pace.

I just came across an announcement that Darwin Ports is shutting down[1]. I’m not sure what this means to those of us who have relied on Darwin Ports over time (Fink?).

Anyone have any thoughts other than building each component individually?

fear not, while the opendarwin project is closing down, darwinports[1]
is not - in early september, it moved to a new host[2] and was renamed
macports[3]. james duncan davidson's invaluable article[4] was updated
to reflect the naming change, uses mongrel instead of lighty and
probably some other things as well.
