I’ve got a small, a large and a really large web application development projects in my head and I’m thinking about using Ruby on Rails to do at least the small and large.

I’m running under Tiger and found that you really need to look at How To Install On Tiger to get it working.

Specifically you need to do the mysql fix mentioned in the comments

sudo gem install mysql — –with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql

If you don’t you won’t be able to get the tutorials working.

Rails interests me for two reasons. I like Ruby’s object orientedness and the model/view/controller pattern it uses reminds me of WebObjects. I may use WO for my really big project, which may be a year out.
