OS X Leopard to have Ruby on Rails

Aug 09, 2006

I received a jubilant email today from Shawn that contained a link to this article officially announcing that Mac OS X Leopard will indeed be shipped with Ruby on Rails pre-configured.

For anyone who's followed these great directions to get RoR up and running on a Mac knows that it takes a fair amount of time and a good bit of focus to get everything correct. Having everything pre-installed will save many people a great deal of aggravation.

On top of having Ruby and Rails in the box, they've promised other packaged goodies like Mongrel, a Ruby alternative to Apache that I've heard is much more efficient.

It's not like I needed another reason to look forward to the OS X update, but now I'm truly excited to get my hands on Leopard.
