Ruby on Rails Instructions Released for Leopard

Dan over at Hivelogic released an updated guide for installing Ruby, Rails Gems, Rails, and MySQL. Check out the article here. If there’s anything else that you need to install (like RSpec, Capistrano, SVN) you can do that with the following commands.

To install RSpec just type:

$ gem install rspec

To install Capistrano, type:

$ gem install capistrano

To install SVN it’s a little different, so you’ll have to install with the following command:

$ curl -O http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-1.4.3.tar.gz
curl -O http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-deps-1.4.3.tar.gz
tar xzvf subversion-1.4.3.tar.gz
tar xzvf subversion-deps-1.4.3.tar.gz
cd subversion-1.4.3
./configure –prefix=/usr/local –with-openssl –with-ssl with-zlib
make
sudo make install
Once you have everything is done you should be all set. If you want to check out any other gems, check out this site http://gems.rubyforge.org/gems/.
