Installing rvm in home directory or system-wide using Rails?

0 votes

Is there any advantages of installing rvm system-wide as opposed to just in the home directory of a user?

Please go through this : System wide RVM will let you use the same installation for all users on the system. But I have seen many junior devs screw up their dev environment by trying a system wide RVM installation but did not follow the instructions correctly. Single user installations look safer and less error prone to me. I like to have Single User RVM installations on my systems because I am more comfortable when I am not sudo-ing too often :)

You shouldn't be using sudo even with system-wide installs-- add yourself to the rvm group!   I install single-user on my dev machine(s), but on my servers I always install system-wide and use a bundle deployment for my apps.

Is it possible to run Ruby and Rails on Mac OS X off of a local folder (without local or system install using RVM, Homebrew, etc.)

Similar to the way one can copy/paste Java installation directory and just run off of it with no dependencies, I'd like to do the same with Ruby/Rails.

The goal is to be able to connect a USB drive to someone's Mac OS X, open terminal, and demo an application (execute "rails server" from the mounted USB drive) without having to install/compile anything.

We recently looked at mongoDB a bit. I was discussing using mongoDB with active record but was told that maybe there are other or better options. Can someone comment on that ?

Also, someone suggested storing a ruby array directly inside of a record where I would have opted for the array to be a separate set of records in active record using has_many and belongs_to .. It seemed to me that how I search on those child records would be a big factor but I soon realized I need to find out what are the options. Do people store arrays and hashes directly in mongo DB fields or is that not the best way to go ?
