very easy:

$ gem install nitro
$ cd mydir
$ mkdir public
$ vi run.rb
   include 'nitro'
   Nitro.run
$ cd public
$ vi index.xhtml
   <b>hello world</b>
$ cd ..
$ ruby run.rb

and browse localhost:9999

to make this dynamic:

$ vi public/index.xhtml
  <b>hello world, the time is #{Time.now}</b>

and refresh your browser ;-)

From there, you can start adding pretty much everything, from ORM, to
ajax, to webservices, you name it. Nitro provides everything you need.
