Ruby-Doc.org: Documenting the Ruby Language Ruby Gem Management with RVM and Bundler When I started learning Ruby, managing gems was a huge problem to the point I would make fun of it. Now I use RVM which helps you install multiple versions of ruby on one computer. Not only does it do that, but it makes gem management a breeze as well! Here I will outline how to install and configure RVM as well as manage your gems with RVM and the Rails 3 bundler. Installing RVM Install RVM by running this in terminal. Then drop this into your ~/.profile file. Run it with . ~/.profile in terminal. Installing Ruby 1.9.2 Use RVM to install the version of ruby you want. You can make double-sure by typing ruby -v and checking what version is currently loaded. Gem Management with RVM Now that we are up and running on ruby 1.9.2 lets talk about managing your gems. RVM has “gemsets” which allow you to organize different sets of gems. Create the global gemset. rvm gemset create global rvm gemset use global Install gems here that will be used in projects like bundler and passenger. bundle install

jarmo/require_all Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Learn Rails by Example | Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial book and screencasts | by Michael Hartl Michael Hartl Contents Foreword My former company (CD Baby) was one of the first to loudly switch to Ruby on Rails, and then even more loudly switch back to PHP (Google me to read about the drama). Though I’ve worked my way through many Rails books, this is the one that finally made me “get” it. The linear narrative is such a great format. Enjoy! Derek Sivers (sivers.org) Founder, CD Baby Acknowledgments The Ruby on Rails Tutorial owes a lot to my previous Rails book, RailsSpace, and hence to my coauthor Aurelius Prochazka. I’d like to acknowledge a long list of Rubyists who have taught and inspired me over the years: David Heinemeier Hansson, Yehuda Katz, Carl Lerche, Jeremy Kemper, Xavier Noria, Ryan Bates, Geoffrey Grosenbach, Peter Cooper, Matt Aimonetti, Gregg Pollack, Wayne E. About the author Michael Hartl is the author of the Ruby on Rails Tutorial, the leading introduction to web development with Ruby on Rails.

You have probably heard about Ruby, and you might be wondering—what is all the fuss? For starters, it’s written in a very easy-to-use, intuitive manner. For beginners who have tried teaching themselves a programming language, there are many obvious barriers like the syntax and semantics of a language. Ruby is widely deployed ranging from applications in simulations, 3D modeling, business, robotics to web applications and security. So how might you go about to learn Ruby, now that you are convinced that it is valued by the software community? Learn ruby with code(love) Though the usual suspects like Codecademy and Learn Ruby the Hard Way are good resources to learn Ruby, there are a bunch of other resources including Try Ruby, Ruby Koans, Ruby Warriors and many more.
