Install rails on OSX mavericks? any good tutorials?
Hey, I'm having a hard time installing rails and all that other stuff like github, RVM, Homebrew and so on, all the things they say to install in the ruby on rails tutorials. The reason why I'm struggling with this is because the tutorials are so old, so its not the same on the website anymore, so any tips are very welcoming, and does anyone know of any tutorials from 2014 for mavericks? TY!

Hi Anders. Sorry to hear your having troubles. Not to be negative, but this is why I have come to stay away from Ruby/Rails. It requires us to alter our systems in way we probably don't yet understand. I have read up on using the Terminal so i understand the usr/local/bin thing etc. But I still don't like it. Homebrew just want's to run your file management, which I don't like. I'm sure once a person is used to it, its great, maybe. As for not updating the videos thats pretty bad. Here is a guide I found for you. Hopefully this will help you. I think a new Rails setup, including Homebrew, is best done without Nodes package manager installed, or any other items in your usr/local/bin directory. http://www.createdbypete.com/articles/ruby-on-rails-development-setup-for-mac-osx/
