I tried setting up a Ruby on Rails project on my nice safe volume called "Data RAID". The set up failed with some strange errors that I eventually tracked down to the space in the path name. It works if I execute it on another volume. I tried setting up a symlink to the directory, which works fine with the cd command, but doesn't help with the set up. Is it possible to get an application to use a symlink or other method that avoids the pathname with a space?
The Terminal command I'm running that errors out is
rails new projectnamae
One other twist is something I set up to specify the location of the gems:
mkdir ~/.bundle touch ~/.bundle/config echo 'BUNDLE_PATH: vendor/bundle' >> ~/.bundle/config
It is with the gems that I'm getting the error.
