Assuming that you have created your initial ruby on rails application, and you have git installed, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Create a new account in Gitorious
  2. Copy your public ssh key (usually in ~./ssh) to your new account in Gitorius
  3. Create a new project in Gitorius (ie My Project)
  4. Add a new repository in Gitorius (ie My Git Repository)
  5. On your local development host initialise the git repository in your project’s directory: git init
  6. Add your remote hosting repository: git remote add origin git@gitorious.org:my-project-name/my-git-repo.git
  7. Add your project files: git add .
  8. Do your initial commit: git commit -m "Initial commit"
  9. Push your project to the Gitorious repository: git push origin master
