http://ironruby.net/Documentation/Rails has been updated to show instructions for running Rails 2.3.5 on IronRuby, including using the official activerecord-sqlserver-adapter (v2.3). Thanks to Ivan for his work on ironruby-dbi!
The steps are extrememly simple now. Assuming you have IronRuby installed and a Rails app you'd like to run on IronRuby:
1. Install Rake, Rails, and IronRuby SQLServer
igem install rake rails ironruby-sqlserver
2. Add the following to the top of your app's config/environment.rb:
3. Connect to SQLServer in config/database.yml:
4. Migrate the database and start the server:
And that's it! The documentation link above also has a walk through setting up IronRuby, Rails, and SQLServer, and shows a basic Rails "scaffold" running.
Coming soon are updated instructions for running rack-based web applications in IIS on IronRuby.
Let me know if you have any questions,
