Ruby on Rails and OpenSolaris

I've been meaning to look at Ruby / Ruby on Rails for some time now, well ever since I heard there was a DTrace provider for it. After seeing that RoR version 1.0 had been released that made now a good time to take a look.

What is RoR 1.0
  • Ruby 1.8.2 an interpreted language - a 3.6M tarball  compile yourself
  • RubyGems 0.8.11 - ruby package manager (written in Ruby) - 160K tarball
  • Rails - web application development framework  (written in Ruby picked up from http://www.rubyonrails.org and installed on your machine)
The default behavior of ruby and gem is to install the binaries, libs and man pages in /usr/local so you will need to have write permission there.

I followed the install instructions it all went very smoothly all the gnu tools required ship with Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris in /usr/sfw/bin (make sure it's in your PATH)

Now it's time to see what RoR can do!
