I run Mac OS X myself. I've installed rbenv via homebrew to take care of my Ruby setup.

 

Rails is just a gem for Ruby, so you'll install that afterwards with

gem install rails 

or create a Gemfile in your project folder to take care of it. A Gemfile could look like this:

source 'https://rubygems.org'

ruby '2.0.0'

gem 'rails'

gem 'actionpack-action_caching'
gem 'asset_sync'
gem 'authlogic', github: 'binarylogic/authlogic'
gem 'bootstrap-sass'
gem 'coffee-rails'
gem 'dalli'
gem 'exception_notification'
gem 'font-awesome-rails'
gem 'highcharts-rails'
gem 'iron_worker_ng'
gem 'jbuilder'
gem 'jquery-rails'
gem 'memcachier'
gem 'newrelic_rpm'
gem 'pg'
gem 'prawn', '>= 1.0.0.rc2'
gem 'prawn_rails'
gem 'rack-timeout'
gem 'rails-i18n'
gem 'sass-rails'
gem 'uglifier'
gem 'unf'
gem 'yui-compressor'

group :production do
  gem 'justonedb'
  gem 'passenger'
  gem 'rails_12factor' # required by Heroku
end

group :development do
  gem 'annotate'
  gem 'better_errors'
  gem 'binding_of_caller'
  gem 'bullet'
  gem 'foreman'
  gem 'hirb'
  gem 'lol_dba' # To find table in need of indexes run 'lol_dba db:find_indexes'
  gem 'mailcatcher'
  gem 'pry'
  gem 'quiet_assets'
  gem 'rubocop'
end

group :test do
  gem 'capybara'
  gem 'capybara-webkit'
  gem 'factory_girl_rails', require: false
  gem 'fuubar'
  gem 'rspec-rails'
end 

Instead of running 

gem install <gem-name> 

for each of these, we can run 

bundle install 

(after we've installed it with gem install bundler).

 

Now everythings is setup and ready.

Have a look here: http://www.nicoschue...x-mountain-lion

 

It's a step-by-step guide I wrote for installing a complete Ruby/Rails environment on OS X. Originally written for Mountain Lion, it also works fine with Mavericks (tested more than once).
