Ruby on Rails autoinstaller

August 16, 2009 at 4:37 am by in

At long last, we’ve just deployed a brand new autoinstaller for Ruby on Rails, the popular Ruby based web application framework.

Ruby on Rails has been supported on scripts.mit.edu for quite some time, but the setup process was entirely manual, and involved many nonintuitive steps. You can now get a working Rails installation up and running for your own application in less than 60 seconds by typing

$ add scripts
$ scripts-rails

from any Athena machine, and following the instructions.

This brings the count of autoinstallable applications up to 12:

advancedbook
django
e107
gallery2
joomla
mediawiki
phpbb
phpical
rails
trac
turbogears
wordpress

You can read more about these applications on our quick-start page.
