Guess I'll learn Rails some where else

From day one I had issues with Jason class. Just can't get it right. Today I can't open a subl folder after all the trouble I've gone through it's not worth it to me.

Here's a Textmate tutorial: http://hiltmon.com/blog/2013/11/09/textmate-2-basics/

The info you need is in the section that says "mate and rmate"

What subl folder? I explained to you that subl is a custom command that opens up Sublime Text software. You can set it up yourself if you want (there are tutorials online for this) or just work in whatever environment you want.

When Jason shows us the 'touch simple_methods.rb, right after that he opens 'subl simple_methods.rb' that opens a new window where he writes BankAccount class, do you follow? I can't do that. I have textmate which I down loaded when I started the course, tried using the mate and was having trouble Running it on the terminal.

So like I said, you can simply open your text editor (normally, not through the terminal) and then open your rb file in it, ignoring the whole thing Jason just did. he did it because this is his setup and he can't expect everyone to have the same setup ;). Using Workspaces will make it all easier for you.

One more question for you that is: What is (or where can I find) the Simple Workspace console combo just like Treehouse teachers use? I have Textmate. Thank you so much.

Here's the combo that allows you to use just the browser, you don't need to use any text editor or terminal of your own operating system. http://teamtreehouse.com/workspaces

Thanks David. This tutorial just exposed me to a world that I never thought possible.
