Instant Rails 1.0

I almost forgot to blog about this (I’m not used to blogging about my own stuff)…

I just released Instant Rails 1.0. Instant Rails is a one-stop Rails runtime solution containing Ruby, Rails, Apache, and MySQL, all preconfigured and ready to run. No installer, you simply drop it into the directory of your choice and run it. It does not modify your system environment. It even includes the Rails-based blogging software Typo preinstalled as a sample application (thanks to David Morton for doing this).

This initial version of Instant Rails is a fork of EasyPHP and, consequently is Windows-only.

Fortunately, I got four other people excited enough about this project to join me in developing Instant Rails 2 which will be cross-platform.
