I’m using the awesome Paperclip plugin in my rails app. One of the great selling points for it is that it will automatically resize images and create thumbnails for them. To do this, it needs the ImageMagick library installed.
So I headed over there, and downloaded the 100k installer for that. Only to see that it needed XCode as a dependency, roughly a 1 GB install.
So, I broke out the system DVD and installed XCode. And then mac ports. And then ImageMagick. Just so that I could resize an image programatically.
