The most frustrating part of learning to code has been the amount of time I have to spend dealing with installations and getting things running. I want to code, not google error messages to figure out why I can’t install a gem or plugin.
I took a little break for the past couple weeks. This morning I started again. Continuing on with the Odin Project rails section, I’m going to be working through Hartl’s Rails Tutorial.
I have gotten used to using my local setup, with sublime text and the command line. But wouldn’t you know it, when I tried to create a new rails app, I got ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. %&*$@#!. This worked last month. I tried this a couple different ways, tried installing an updated version of rails and tried again. Still no dice.
I believe the problem is with JSON v 1.8.2, just leaving that as as note if I ever try to come back to fix this. But whatevs! I’m done with this.
The Hartl’s tutorial recommends using Cloud 9 for the tutorial. I gave it a try and so far it’s been easy enough. If it can solve my problems with various installations I will be happy.
