Railcar: an isolated Rails environment Jump to Story

You've probably heard about Yehuda Katz’s Tokaido project based on his Kickstarter campaign to make it simpler for beginners to setup and install a Rails environment for development on OS X. The project has inspired Jeremy McAnally to create Railcar, a MacRuby application which creates an isolated environment for you with Homebrew, rb-env, Ruby, and some default packages. All of this is isolated from the rest of your system. The project isn't near a public release, but if you want to get involved with helping the project Jeremy is looking for assistance with development, or donations to help fund development.
