What is the best tool for practicing ruby?


#1

I've tried rubyfiddle.com but it doesn't seem to to work right.

I assume I should download and install ruby? Or should I install ruby on rails if I plan to learn that later? I can still type and run basic ruby if I download ruby on rails, right?

Yes.

It does not really matter. You can also install Ruby and later install Ruby on Rails.

I can still type and run basic ruby if I download ruby on rails, right?

Yes. Ruby on Rails is a Ruby framework, so it needs Ruby to run.
