    I implemented this change request.

    Please help to test by installing a new alonetone on localhost using the guideline in README.markdown

    feel free to change the wording in README.markdown. English is not my mother language :D

    Ok, I'll have to try this out.

    I pulled it into master for now, and I'll try to setup another local copy and see how it goes.

    The only thing I changed is that I commented out the rmagick requirement - I use imagescience, so when that requirement is there, I can't load alonetone (I don't have rmagick)

    Also, I added back the haml plugin - it is used for pages_controller and I get an error without the plugin.

    I would say we are pretty close to resolving this one.

    rake gems:install didn't seem to install the required gems for me. It failed with errors for both haml and rmagic so I manually installed the rest.

    It seems also that (according to the error I got from running rake db:migrate) that 'googlecharts' is also a required gem but it isn't listed.

    Hi Matt,

    "haml" is required by plugins so config.gem can't help in this case. I think we can work around by adding notification in require statement. Do you have any better idea?

    To Sudara: Can we remove vendor/plugin/haml? Why you need it in production server? I can run alonetone without it in my machine.

    Sudara said that we can use either "rmagick" or "imagescience" that why "rmagick" or "imagescience" does not apprear in config.gem list.

    We can tell it clearer in README.markdown

    At this point I'm just pointing out things that seem at variance with the docs. In principle I think a note in the docs is enough of a solution. I would do it myself but since I don't understand what's what yet it doesn't make much sense for me to correct anything.

    Thanks Matt,

    The purpose of this ticket is to help anyone with little technical skill can install alonetone seamlessly.

    As you see in the source code, I borrowed a nice technique from spot-us to created config files automatically.

    I would like to do the same with required gems through "rake gems:install" but seem to be that it doesn't work for every case :D

    haml is needed for the views in /pages

    Sudara, can you load HAML gem via config.gem "haml" in production server? It worked on my localhost.
