Ruby Forum Search did not work, and I did not find any postings about http://laszlo-plugin.rubyforge.org/. OpenLaszlo is a framework handling the GUI part, or the V in MVC. See http://www.laszlosystems.com/lps/laszlo-in-ten-minutes/ for info about Laszlo itself. My question is, does anybody have experience with this framework, especially combined with Rails? Or, could I get some of the best Rails with Ajax links. I'm involved in a huge project with hundreds of tables and heavy GUI usage, and need some input to be able to convince the customer to try Rails. I think the weak/hard spot with Rails is the GUI.

Hi ! 2006/1/24, Christer N. <email@example.com>: > My question is, does anybody have experience with this framework, > especially combined with Rails? I do have some experience. I recoded part of the Laszlo Dashboard example to grab the data from a Rails view. What kind of questions do you have ? In the Rails app, I coded an XML view, and used Laszlo's dataset to connect to it. I needed authentication, so I had to pass parameters to the Laszlo app, in the form of query parameters. That allowed the Laszlo GUI to reuse the same cookies as the Rails GUI. Hope that helps !

Michael Pence et al,, have started a project to do just that. If you search the ruby-forum you should find all the discussions up to date and how you might contribute to the effort. -bakki kudva

Thanks for the excuse to pimp our project again. The Laszlo on Rails project (http://groups.google.com/group/laszlo-on-rails) is now 145 members strong and Oliver's contributions give us a huge head start. We are out to take the greatness that is Ruby on Rails and the greatness that is Laszlo and make adding rich media to your site -- including animations, audio and video -- as simple as adding any other AJAX technology. As I have said before, Web 2.0 is *so* last year. Join us as we go one better! Mike P.
