INSTALL
=======
For now, installation is still pretty long-winded. It's a bit easier if you live within Ubuntu's packages.
1. First you will need to install Ruby-GNOME2, the build tools and some other necessary libraries. On Ubuntu/Debian (tested on Ubuntu 8.04 - 9.04) you may simply do:
$ sudo apt-get install ruby ruby1.8-dev rubygems1.8 libhttp-access2-ruby1.8 rubygems1.8 ruby-gnome2 build-essential libonig2 libonig-dev libgtk2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev libgee0 libgee-dev libgtksourceview2.0-dev libxul-dev xvfb libdbus-ruby
If you are not using Debian/Ubuntu, or have installed Ruby yourself from source, then you should make sure that you have these libraries installed:
1. Ruby, Rubygems, Glib, Gtk, GtkSourceView 2 with development headers
2. Ruby-GNOME2 http://ruby-gnome2.sourceforge.jp/
3. Oniguruma (any version will probably work, tested with 5.9.0) http://www.geocities.jp/kosako3/oniguruma/
4. Libgee http://live.gnome.org/Libgee
5. Ruby DBus git://github.com/sdague/ruby-dbus.git
6. GtkSourceView 2.0
2. Install the required Ruby gems:
$ sudo gem install oniguruma activesupport rspec cucumber hoe open4 zerenity
3. Download Redcar:
$ wget http://cloud.github.com/downloads/danlucraft/redcar/redcar-0.1.tar.gz
4. Unzip the source:
$ tar xzf redcar-latest.tar.gz
5. Build Redcar
$ cd redcar/
$ rake build
6. Now try running Redcar
$ cd REDCAR_PATH
$ ./bin/redcar
The first time Redcar runs it will spend time loading the Textmate Bundles.
This only happens once.
NB. Ubuntu 9.10 users should start Redcar with the --multiple-instance flag, as
there appears to be a bug in the Jaunty ruby dbus package.
INSTALL FROM GITHUB CLONE
=========================
There are instructions on how to get Redcar running from a clone of the github source here: http://redcareditor.com/doc/develop.html
