For this microtut I’m going to assume you have Ruby on Rails installed and now you want to create a project and get a start. Look a the previous post in the series if you haven’t installed Rails yet.
rails new railstest
In this case “railstest” is the name of our project. You can call it whatever you want.
You should see something similar to the following output:
=> Booting WEBrick => Rails 3.2.2 application starting in development on http://0.0.0.0:3000 => Call with -d to detach => Ctrl-C to shutdown server [2012-04-13 11:11:19] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1 [2012-04-13 11:11:19] INFO ruby 1.9.3 (2012-02-16) [x86_64-darwin10.8.0] [2012-04-13 11:11:19] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=55983 port=3000
Pull up your projects start page by copying and pasting the URL from the output above into a browser. In this case mine is http://0.0.0.0:3000 but yours may vary.
If all goes well you should see this page:
