I just started working with a new stack today and it involves a lot of techs that I have never worked with (Ruby, Rails).
I was having a hard time to create a new project with Rails 6.x mostly because the
Ruby installed in my Ubuntu via
apt-get was pointing to version
I needed something newer ... And
snapd was there to rescue me.
gustavo@bulls:~$ snap install ruby
gustavo@bulls:~$ ruby -v ruby 2.7.1p83 (2020-03-31 revision a0c7c23c9c) [x86_64-linux]
I finally got the newest version of Ruby and could finally do:
gustavo@bulls:~$ gem install rails ... gustavo@bulls:~$ rails -v Rails 18.104.22.168
snap. Well, here are some advantages of using
railin a separate sandbox preserving your OS packages.
- You can always get the latest version even if your OS do not provide them (don't be angry
- Easy to install/remove without breaking anything :)
Well, here is the blog post from Ruby blog!
Any other tips for today guys?
