Yesterday I picked up a new white Apple MacBook. My 12 inch Apple PowerBook was getting a little old. Different features were starting not to work. I figured it was time for a change.
I knew that one of the first things that I wanted to do was install Ruby on Rails and MySQL.
Dan Benjamin has the BEST instructions for how to setup Ruby on Rails and MySQL.
I’m somewhat command line phobic. All you have to do is copy and paste the instructions that Dan has written out and it just works.
Go check it out.

Ruby on Rails is gaining popularity. However, where I work its hard to bring in open source to the corporate world (not even PHP) 😦 We are still stuck using ASP.
You’ll love the Macbook.
YAY For the macbook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that’s awesome!!! *cheers* welcome to macbook land and a world without a separate video webcam thing haha
Hey Justin. You’ve probably got everything installed at this point, but I thought you might like to know that Sakuzaku has a script to automatically download and install the software mentioned in Dan’s Hivelogic tutorial. (Actually, it follows the tutorial almost verbatim.)
