Description Rob Cakebread (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-04 22:28:27 UTC
Ruby on Rails is a full-stack, open-source web framework in Ruby for writing real-world applications with joy and less code than most frameworks spend doing XML sit-ups.

Hi Rob. I don't know why you're waiting to commit this stuff, so I just wanted to give you a little heads up that I've tested Rails and all the related ebuilds on my local machine and they seem to work fine so far.

Hi Michael, the reason I was holding off was that I remembered we had webapp-config, which I'm not familiar with, and that rails should probably install individual apps with webapp-config. It s so easy to just use "rails /var/www/localhost/htdocs/myapp", but I thought I'd better give webapp-config a shot first. Also I'm writing up some brief docs/pkg_postinst on using rails with apache, lighttpd and webrick. I'll try to get it in to cvs today.

No worries. I didn't intend to rush you, I was just curious what exactly is stopping you from the commit. Your reasons seem fine, so take your time and let me know if you need some testing done.

Added to CVS without using webapp-config. After studying it, I don't see any reason to use it to install a development rails app. After we have actual rails apps that need to be put in portage we can look at using webapp-config.
