Setting up RubyMotion

Key Concepts

  • managing Xcode versions with xcode-select
  • the motion command line tool
  • motion update and the changelog
  • motion repo and the RubyMotion template repository

Before we get started, you will need to set up your Mac for RubyMotion/iOS development. You can either watch and work through the steps with the video, or download the preparation.pdf file, read the *entire file*, and then go ahead and follow the instructions contained therein for installing Xcode and RubyMotion.

Even if you have installed RubyMotion and Xcode before, it's a good idea to read this document, and download / update to the latest, greatest versions.
