I am getting my new MacBook today and was wondering if the experts on
this list might have some tips and pointers about what they do to set up
their Macs as a RubyonRails dev machine?
I come from a windows background and some of this is essential there.
But in the case of Macs do you recommend,
* installing the OS from scratch
* adding/removing any default applications from the install
* any other system/OS level tuning
I do intend to use the Hivelogic/Geoffrey Grosenbach's tips to get the
Ruby, Rails, MySQL, Mongrel setup done. Suggestions/comments welcome.
This is an updated "version" of Hivelogic's instructions, but uses Mongrel instead of Lighttpd, adds in rmagick and memcache, etc...
It's 99% copy paste too which is nice
