Looking to learn something new?
Installing Rails Mac
I am unable to install rails on my mac. I am using 10.9 , but was unable to install with 10.8 either. The examples in the tutorial do nothing for me. I followed this. It is also not working. Particularly when I try to install rails I get
"Unable to require openssl, install OpenSSL and rebuild ruby (preferred) or use non-HTTPS sources". I checked that OpenSSl is installed and it is. I re-installed X-Code, and the dev tools. Re-installed ruby via rvm multiple times via various suggestions online. I installed OpenSSl manually and re-installed ruby. Nothing I can find online will work for me. Kind of new to this. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. :)

Because you just started your rails journey I would recommend:
- install homebrew http://brew.sh/
- install RVM - http://portertech.ca/2010/03/26/homebrew--rvm--awesome/ RVM provides you with small ruby environment where you can start goofing off a bit without causing any damage to 'system' ruby and gems. BTW. Ruby version provided with OSX is pretty outdated. Go for "latest but stable" one.
