Welcome to The Rails 3 Way

This is a sample application that will help you follow along in the book.


  • Assuming OS X 10.6.4
  • Lots of Rails, RSpec, and Bundler things are in flux, as well as Ruby 1.9.
  • This app should work under Ruby 1.8.7-p299 and Ruby 1.9.2.rc1
  • You need mysql 5.1.41 if running Ruby 1.9.2.rc1 (to avoid seg faults)


For now:

  • gem install bundler --pre
  • gem install rails --pre
  • gem install rspec-rails --pre
  • gem install ruby-debug#19 #remove the comment before '19' if on Ruby 1.9
  • bundle install
  • rake test && rake spec #to run the tests
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
