I just have some little experiment with Rails in the past 2days.
Reading and testing from these words I was able to get “interesting”.
Here it goes.
I get ready to install via apt-get here:
prompt$ sudo apt-get install ruby irb prompt$ sudo apt-get install rails mongrel mongrel-doc prompt$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.0 mysql-client-5.0 prompt$ rails rails_pet prompt$ cd rails_pets prompt$ ruby script/generate model pet
Login to Mysql:
mysql> create database rails_pets_development;
prompt$ vi config/database.yml ----- development: adapter: mysql database: rails_pets_development username: root password: db_password_secret socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock ---- prompt$ rake db:migrate == CreatePets: migrating ====================================================== -- create_table(:pets) -> 0.0795s == CreatePets: migrated (0.0797s) ============================================= $prompt ruby script/generate controller pet prompt$ ruby script/generate scaffold Pets
Launch the server:
prompt$ ruby script/server
I point my browser to: http://localhost:3000/
Then later to http://localhost:3000/pets/
So far so good, but little tricky. I need to go around with all these stuff in the next few days. I need more ways to motivate myself learning Rails..maybe a yoga or a night workout will suffice. 🙂
