This book is here to give you the Shopify Platform Developer a leg up in your new (or old) adventure.

Setup

These steps assume you have a working installation of Ruby, bundler, git, and a C/C++ compiler like gcc.

  2. Install the trial version of Prince, an HTML to PDF generator. Check the Prince download page for the version for your operating system. Installation for OS X looks like this:

    $ tar zxvf prince-8.0-macosx.tar.gz

    $ prince-8.0-macosx/install.sh

  3. Clean up the install:

    $ rm -rf prince-8.0-macosx prince-8.0-macosx.tar.gz
