Rails Wizard is a web-based wizard to walk you through the first steps of creating a Rails application. The first hours of a Rails project can be frustrating: you feel as though you've done all of this before in a slightly different context. Rails Wizard aims to get all of the repetitive startup cost out of the development process, letting you focus on getting awesome fast.

All you have to do is choose from the various options below and click "Create Template" at the bottom of the page. We'll automatically build a custom Rails template and give you the command-line instructions you need to get it up and running.
