Why use the Bitnami Ruby Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run Ruby Stack in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Ruby Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of Ruby Stack and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Ruby Stack as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Ruby Stack or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami Ruby Stack stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

  2. Bitnami Ruby Stack 5

    Bitnami got me working again

    by Lindsay Morris on

    Nightmare of incompatibilities between ruby, rails, and various gems.

    I spent hours googling around for similar problems (and finding MANY! how can rails developers think this is OK?) and every time I solve one, I hit another one. No end in site.

    Then I got the Bitnami RubyStack; copied my project inot the projects directory: had to run

    bundle install

    rake db:create

    rake db:migrate

    and BANG: running again. Back to real work instead of fighting my own toolset.

    Thank you Bitnami!!!!

    I use RubyStack since November, 2007.

    RubyStack is a perfect bundle of all the needed tools for Ruby on Rails studying, development, deployment. I've been using it for a long time already under GNU/Linux and MS Windows (32 & 64bit). I find it VERY useful. Thanks a lot for a power tool!

  5. Bitnami Ruby Stack 4

    Thanks, but Radiant module not working

    by Ayham Saunders on

    Thanks you very much for all what you have done, I it was really frustrating for me to install rails on my own, your ruby stack worked like a magic.

    I just want to report that I tried to install Radiant module on top of Ruby Stack 4, but this caused the Apache server to crash and stop working, I uninstalled Radiant, and now Apache server is now working again.

    hope that you can fix the problem

    and many thanks :)
