Here's how you can get a **[development](http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html)** environment up and running.  This is where any new pod runner should start, as well as people
looking to contribute to D*.  This script assumes you have [a basic Rails setup installed](http://railsapps.github.com/installing-rails-3-1.html).

25
### Step 1: Run the script and follow the on screen instructions.
26
```
27
  bash <(curl https://raw.github.com/diaspora/diaspora/master/script/install.sh)
28
```
