This project is meant to help set up a fresh Ubuntu ennvironment for rails _development_. There are some other rails on ubuntu repos, but they are targeted more as server setups, this is targeted at development. Everytime I have to set up a new machine I can never remember exactly which packages and gems to install. So I wrote this for myself, but I thought others might find it useful as well. If you find errors or have specific improvements just add an issue on github. You'll notice that there are only command line flags for a couple things. That's because I haven't invested much time into making this a great general script for everyone. I plan on making the script a little more flexible. The current usage is like this: dev-rails-on-ubuntu [-rdoc-ri] [-no-mysql] [-h,--help] -h,--help Show this help -rdoc-ri By default gems are installed without documentation ("--no-rdoc --no-ri"), this option enables documentation -no-mysql This flag disables the MySql install Step by step how to use these scripts: -Click the "Download" link at the top of the github page and download a .tar -Open a terminal and go to the directory of the downloaded .tar -Extract the .tar.gz file, enter directory, and run shell script tar -zxvf bracken-dev-rails-on-ubuntu-*HASH*.tar.gz cd bracken-dev-rails-on-ubuntu-*HASH* ./dev-rails-on-ubuntu.sh -Complete the prompts as they appear The following Ubuntu packages are installed: Base files: build-essential ruby ruby-dev ri rdoc openssl libssl-dev libopenssl-ruby irb Git: git git-core git-completion gitk MySql: mysql-server mysql-client libmysql-ruby libmysql-ruby1.8 libmysqlclient15-dev Sqlite: sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev libsqlite3-ruby These gems are installed: rails mysql sqlite3-ruby rspec rspec-rails cucumber capistrano wirble An .irbrc that adds irb auto-completion and syntax highlighting is added as well. (if one doesn't already exist)
