Downloading and Installing Hobo
The standard mechanism for installing Hobo is to use gem:
gem install hobo
Hobo 2.0.0 is not yet released in final form. The code is finished, but the documentation is not yet complete. So we recommend installing it instead:
gem install hobo --pre
This command will also install the Hobo prerequisites Hobo Support, Hobo Fields and Dryml as well as Mislav’s will_paginate, if you do not already have them installed. The three Hobo prerequisites may be used independently without Hobo, so you may wish to install either or all of them instead of Hobo.
There are additional gems that are almost always used with Hobo. The Hobo generator will install these gems automatically, but for reference, a full Hobo application will include Hobo Rapid and Hobo jQuery. The generator will also let you pick a theme. There are currently two major themes available: Hobo Bootstrap and Hobo Clean. There are two minor variants of theme: Hobo Clean Sidemenu and Hobo Clean Admin. The generator will also install one or both of the toolkits: Hobo jQuery-UI and/or Hobo Bootstrap-UI. The toolkits are nominally optionally, but recommended.
If you wish to download the gems directly, you can get them from RubyGems.org.
