[Ironruby-core] Updated Rails instructions

Console2 is the first thing I install on a new machine. Yeah, a updated console in windows would be nice, but it's not something I see changing in the future, so I'm fine using something that is good.

I believe console 2 defaults to shift + click and drag to select, and auto-copy on release. I do agree with the request for a better console in windows, though.

copying text from console 2. Copy is broken AFAICT.
Where do we submit a request to microsoft to finally include a console that allows you to copy paste with a keyboard shortcut from a console window, tabs would be nice too.
I've wanted to get that for 15 years now.

right click the console window and select view > console window

That gives you the cmd window and you can use mark,....

Then to your rails problem. Does your database exist?

For item 2. Does anything show up in log/develpment.log?

I just noticed the instructions are using ironruby-sqlserver though you note in your email that you are supporting activerecord-sqlserver-adapter. Is ironruby-sqlserver a wrapper, or would you just need to swap your adapter?

I'm also running into other problems:
1) I verified that I have the correct access (unless rails needs access?), but irake db:migrate produces the following error:
2) Trying to open the environment settings from the default page for the Rails app produces this message:

Any help is appreciated. I'm stumped. And if anyone knows how to copy text from Console2, I would appreciate the tip.

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:

require 'rubygems'
require 'ironruby_sqlserver'

3. Connect to SQLServer in config/database.yml:

 mode: ADONET
 adapter: sqlserver
 database: app123_development
 integrated_security: true

4. Migrate the database and start the server:

irake db:migrate
ir script\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.
