OS X Railsinstaller

These instructions should work on Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion.

Step 1: Run RailsInstaller

RailsInstaller includes Rails, Ruby, Git, and SQLite.

Go to http://railsinstaller.org/ and download the kit.

Don't watch the video! After you download the file, come back to this site!

Click on the downloaded file to run the install wizard. Click Next at each step to accept the defaults. Enter your full name and email when prompted.

Step 2: Open Terminal

Look for Terminal.app inside Applications -> Utilities.

Add it to your dock; you'll be using it a lot. (To add it to the dock, click and hold the dock icon once Terminal is open. Select options -> keep in dock.)

Arrange your windows so that Terminal and your web browser are next to each other. You will want to read from your browser and type into your terminal at the same time.

Step 3: Install KomodoEdit

We'll be using the KomodoEdit text editor during the workshop, though you are free to use a different editor if you prefer. It must be a plain-text editor, such as vi or TextMate. Microsoft Word and other word processing programs won't work.

When in doubt, use KomodoEdit.

Verify successful installation
