Updating Ruby and installing Rails

Step 1

Search for "Git Bash". Once it's open, type:

curl http://installrails.com/update_rubygems.rb | ruby

When the download is complete, you can exit Git Bash.

Step 2

Next we'll download Node.js. Follow the download instructions at http://nodejs.org and accept all of the defaults.

Step 3

Search for "Command prompt with Ruby and Rails." You'll be using this a lot, so you should pin it to your taskbar. In the command prompt type:

gem install rails --no-ri --no-rdoc
