I'm a flatiron school bootcamp student. I've noticed that no one in the first and second modules seems to know how to start a new program from the terminal. So here we are.
Open your terminal and type the following in the directory of your choice:
mkdir new_folder cd new_folder bundle init touch config.ru
bundle init makes a new gem file and
touch makes a file
At this point you can open your files in your IDE and edit as you usually would. Don't forget to run
git init to create a new local repository and commit often!
