Why use the Bitnami Ruby Stack?

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

  • Up-to-date

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

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Ruby 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 or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

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

    I concur with @Lindsay Morris. It was a nightmare trying to figure it all out only to not work! This was easy.

    Up to date?? Not the case but works somewhat...

    by Stephen Smith on

    Downloaded the latest for Windows (2.2.6) but it actually installs 2.2.5p319. What's going on? Also, 2.3.3 is the latest for Windows AFAIK? As soon as you do 'gem install my_gem' you immediately get an SSL error. Google the error and you'll find the fix - basically an update to rubygems from 2.4.x to 2.6.x will fix it. The rubygems page says 2.4.x is broken on Windows, so why use 2.4.x?. The purpose of this stack is to install a working ruby infrastructure on Windows - almost a complete fail in my opinion if the gem command doesn't work (ruby works so I gave a point for that). For new users who aren't technical this might be a deal breaker. Documentation is out of date as well - postgresql gets installed but not mentioned in readme file (partial mention but incorrectly titles it as MySQL). Overall, love this idea of a pre-installed stack but c'mon guys, make sure the 'gem' command works, keep the docs up to date, and don't say 'up to date' if your product versions are not. Details, details, they're important. :-)

    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 :)
