Goal: quickly create an RVM-backed rails app.
This assumes you have RVM Setup like I do.
I will typically start a new project off like so to create a new rails app (courtesy of RailsApps):
cd ~/railsprojects mkdir palette cd palette rvm use ruby-2.0.0@palette --ruby-version --create gem install rails rails new . git init git add . git commit -m "Initial rails generation" rails s
To see a fancier start to a project using RailsApps’ Rails Composer, visit their page or look at the post: MongoMapper with Rails QuickStart.
