Rails Installer on Windows

If you are like me, I started my Ruby on Rails development on Windows and I had my issues with installing the stack. I had issues with gems especially the ones with C-extensions. But, things have changed dramatically over the years and things are much smoother now. A great example of getting the Rails stack installed on Windows is: Rails Installer.

The Rails Welcome Kit has everything you need to hit the ground running. In one easy-to-use installer, you get all the common packages needed for a full Rails stack. Download it now and be writing (and running) Rails code in no time. Packages included are:

  • Ruby 1.8.7-p330
  • Rails 3.0.3
  • Git 1.7.3.1
  • Sqlite 3.7.3
  • DevKit
