Continuing the discussion from Are developers creating Ember apps outside the context of Rails?:
After reading this post and talking to a few people on IRC I’m starting to think that quite a few people might get turned off from using Ember just because installing Ruby is a painful process (for them).
The general recommendation I’ve been seeing so far is to use rvm, which seems to bring some issues. I’m personally using rbenv and installing new rubies every couple of days without any issues, but that’s because I’m used to it.
Maybe we could put together a small this is how to get Ruby on your machine so that you can compile Ember kind of tutorial, which would cover all of the things like picking the right version, installing openssl, etc.
