In an effort to make the install/setup process for Radiant 1.0 as easy as possible I've started working on installers for Ubuntu/Debian and Mac users.
The installers do not assume you have any part of the Radiant requirements installed so you don't even need a working Ruby to get started (actually on Mac you'll have to manually install Xcode but the installer will let you know what to do). Just run two commands and respond to a few prompts and your Radiant 1.0.0 (currently RC4) will be up and running in no time. Once downloaded you can continue using the script to setup new instances and all the dependency installation stuff will be skipped. If anyone has success or failure I'd like to know about it (either here or in the gist comments) so we can make these things work for as many people as possible. Also if you have the sweet bash/sh scripting chops and want to help improve the scripts that would be fantastic. If there is interest I can setup a proper repository to make forking/merging easier but for now gists seem good enough. ## Mac Tested against 10.7 using Homebrew and MacPorts. Complete script http://git.io/radiant-mac-install curl -OL http://git.io/radiant-mac-install.sh bash radiant-mac-install.sh ## Ubuntu/Debian Tested against Ubuntu 10.04, 11.10 and Debian 6. Complete script http://git.io/radiant-ubuntu-install wget http://git.io/radiant-ubuntu-install.sh bash radiant-ubuntu-install.sh ## What the installer does Running the installer will install RVM and all the platform specific dependencies needed to build rubies. Then it'll install Ruby 1.9.3, setup an isolated RVM environment for each Radiant instance, do the `bundle install` dance, run the bootstrap task and create a project specific `.rvmrc` file so the right environment will be loaded when you `cd` into your project. For Mac users who don't already have a package manager it will additionally install Homebrew. New Radiant instances are created in your home directory but you can move the created projects to wherever you want later.
