Rails on Windows
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: June 2009

It's no secret that the entire Ruby on Rails core team uses OS X as their preferred development environment. Because of this, it is very easy to find authoritative information on the web about using Rails on OS X. But the truth is that Windows developers using Rails probably outnumber those using other platforms. A Windows development environment can be just as productive as any other platform.

This is a guide to developing with Ruby on Rails under Windows. It won't teach you how to write Ruby on Rails web applications, but it will show you what tools to use and how to set them up to create a complete Rails development environment.

Poor editing

Comments about oreilly Rails on Windows:

Hello - I tend to like the 'Shortcuts' series, except for this one. Every single code example given in the shortcut was wrong. It was evident that no one proof-read the document and actually tried the examples before publishing. If you want to be frustrated and do some editing of your own, then buy it...
