RoR makes you more productive?
I must disagree. Granted my environment may not have been the best, but I can follow directions and this is just absurd.
Ive got the following installed on this machine:
Fedora Core 6
Ruby Version 1.8.4
Gems Version 0.9.0
Rails Version 1.2.3
Everything said it installed fine. I start a new project (in fact i follow the exact directions laid out in the book "agile web development with rails" by the pragmatic programmers series, same guys who did the pick book.
blamo i get all the files, looking good. I create a controller:Code:rails demo
No problems there either. I go into the file and add a hello method. I then create a template that has some html in it like so:Code:cd demo; ruby scripts/generate controller Say
no problems there either. I start up the webserver called WEBrick, go to my ip at port 3000 and I get the welcome to RoR page (yea and apparently im on rails )Code:vi app/views/say/hello.rhtml
I then go to where I should see my page served:
and this is what i get from the WEBrick log:Code:http://myipaddress:3000/say/hello
I was under the impression this was supposed to help me be more productive. With all the hubabaloo about rails, id expect a little more out of it than this. Ive already wasted 2 hours getting to this point .. the 'gems' interface is a piece of ... also.
