more cribs on ruby :)

why cant rails have a port/package system like free/net/open BSDs.
Today i started playing with rails and had to download activesupport, activerecord, rack, actionmailer, actionwebservice and actionpack seperately.

this was what i was going to say, then i realized there is a include-dependencies switch too. they seem to have thought of that. i guess this is the basic funda of ruby. they already have thought of what you will do and have devised the defaults for you.

i am not too sure if this idea of videos for quick tutorialsis a good idea (at least for techies). Maybe i will get used to it.

It does. It's called RubyGems. You can read more about how to install Rails using RubyGems on

I will assume you are THE David Heinemeier Hansson. Yeah I saw RubyGems. It is exactly what I was referring to. I will be plugging away on rails and ruby for sure. Have a good time in Chicago.
