Install JRuby on Mac OS X
Same idea as the Groovy and Grails posting, most of the steps are the same but here they are. Download JRuby from http://www.jruby.org/, as of writing this the latest release is 1.6.0. I’m downloading the tar file, I believe it the same as the zip file just different format used to compress the files. $ cd Downloads $ tar -xzf jruby-bin-1.6.0.tar.gz Now lets move it to our /usr/share folder and make the needed symbolic link.
Install Groovy and Grails on Mac OS X
Just some steps to get people up and running with Groovy/Grails on Mac OS. Hopefully with this steps you will be able to easily upgrade to any new version that comes out.

Download the newest releases of Groovy and Grails, Groovy can be found at http://groovy.codehaus.org/, and as I’m writing this the Stable Release is 1.
