Some notes for creating first application using Michael Hartl's book "Ruby on Rails Tutorial 2nd edition"

Using rails to generate a first application:

user$ mkdir rails
user$ cd rails
user$ rails new first_app

At this point the bundler failed and I still had problems after the edits were made to the Gemfile indicated in the book

user$ gem install execjs

This installed gem execjs v2.2.2

root# yum install sqlite-devel

Everything now worked except jquery-rails was changed to v2.0.1 as v2.0.0 has been yanked

Rails server:

root# yum install nodejs

 server now works...

mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('newpwd');
