Topic: SQLite & Locally Installing Gems
I am a rubby noob (came from PHP) and I have been reading the new edition of agile programming with rails. I use the shared host bluehost which supports ruby on rails. Bluehost installs only the required gems (eg. ActionPack, ActionMailer, Rake, etc). So I know I am going to sound dumb but how do I locally install gems (eg. put in vendor directory). How would I go about doing that.
Also I want to learn how to use sqlite. I do not care whether it is sqlite2 or 3 I just would like to use sqlite. I have tried using sqlite (in the depot app from the book) but I get an error during scafolding. Is there any changes I need to make in order to use sqlite?
If it is too difficult please tell me as I don't have a problem using mysql. I just want to be able to more easily distribute my rails applications. Just an upload and maybe edit a few files process. But it would be ideal not to have people need to use SSH.
I will surely be asking more questions. I have heard how awesome rails is. I tried out cakePHP and Symfony but than I just figured why don't I just go with the real thing. So now I just started using rails this weekend and even though I have had a few wierd errors it has simply been a dream. The sheer speed, the scafolding, the way RoR guides you through app making while still giving you control. I am shocked to be able to make an application so fast. So anyways I am in love with rails. Right before I even began to learn rails (although I messed around wit it a few months ago) I got a project to design a dynamic website for a second life magizine (the video game).
