I've been googling for a proper and simple installation of Rails on Ubuntu and have used yours because it worked.
But... So many shortcuts. Installation of Curl, Git, Node, Yarn all in one script, no explanation.
Ccould you at least divide and try to explain the installation process? Like dividing the installation of Curl, GIT and explaining the ff:
1) why we need Node and Yarn for RoR?
2) the libraries downloaded.
3) The need for global variables
4) Etc.

So much copy and paste and little explanation.


Very simple to follow. I'm new to Linux in general, so I didn't fully understand it all, but I did get me up and running. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work.

An improvement regarding PostgreSQL setup could be allowing all local connections without password.

The way to do it is edit the configuration file:

sudo gedit /etc/postgresql/POSTGRE_VERSION/main/pg_hba.conf

And change all methods to trust. Restart postgres service.

This way no password must be provided in the database.yml.
I made RoR succesfully on my old pc with ubuntu 16.04 but now i bought new and i installed 9 on it. When i paste curl to my terminal  i have a problem like "there is no python-software-properties package ..." i didn't paste directly because its turkish.
