2.0 & "Agile Web Dev..." book

Just running through the first little project (depot) in ‘Agile Web
Development with Rails’. It isn’t scaffolding like it says it should
in the book.

After running:

rails -d mysql depot

then SQLing:

drop table if exists products;
create table products (
id int not null auto_increment,
title varchar(100) not null,
description text not null,
image_url varchar(200) not null,
price decimal(10,2) not null,
primary key (id)
);

then config my database.yml

… it won’t completely scaffold. I get:

script/generate scaffold Product Admin
exists app/models/
exists app/controllers/
exists app/helpers/
exists app/views/products
exists app/views/layouts/
exists test/functional/
exists test/unit/
wrong number of arguments (1 for 2)

I just updated Rails and MySQL, and the MySQL gem. Any tips?

Mac OS X 10.5

That’s because the new scaffold generator only takes one argument: the
model name.

The new scaffolds are RESTful, so they name their controllers after
the model resource they are exposing (e.g., Product ->
ProductsController).

Apologies for my bluntness:

If you had managed to take some time off from your busy life and used
the
wonderful, wonderful search feature near the top right of
http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-talk and simply typed
“Rails 2.0scaffold” you would’ve ran into the ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY
FOUR!!! posts on
this mailing list about scaffolding in Rails 2.0.

The sheer number of these posts of people complaining about scaffolding
not
working in Rails 2.0 is getting out of hand! Please, in future, google
it.
If you spend 5 minutes googling and you still haven’t found what you’re
looking for, then come here!

Just skip the part on scaffolding. It’s useless.

Like I said, I apologised before hand about my bluntness.

This post has been asked an incredible number of times on this mailing
list
and it does get a bit irritating when people keep posting the same
question.

Thanks Jeremy, much appreciated.

And Ryan, thanks, for your smartarse comment. I’m the last dude to
jump in and ask in forums without searching and hunting through FAQs-
I spent a good hour of ‘my busy life’ busting out searches, I had no
idea what I was looking for. When you’re brand new to something it’s
not easy to know exactly isn’t working properly. So lay off right?

Call me crazy, but I’m in favor of a forum culture where nobody needs to
fear insults from the more experienced and everyone is free to ignore
redundant posts.

I’m sorry for my forwardness on the issue. I just think that all these
posts
could’ve been prevented by proper googling, something as simple as
“Rails
2.0 scaffold” would’ve yielded the correct results.

Although, how were people people to know that they were using Rails 2.0,
or
care about what version they were using. Does the book mention a single
version of Rails to use? Simply googling for “Rails scaffold” does not
show
any links to any pages mentioning anything about scaffold being
deprecated,
at least on the first page.

Again, I’m sorry for my forwardness but I did assume that dazonic did
not
google before coming here. I should congratulate him on actually
Googling,
and searching, for an hour, like he purportedly did. Many people don’t
do
that, and it’s a unique quality in dazonic that’s good to see.

I think this sort of post goes against everything the members of the
Ruby/Rails community (at least used to…) stand for. Who does it
hurt if someone posts about something again? If no one feels like
answering them, they will turn to Google; otherwise, people like me
who know the answer don’t mind taking 10 seconds out of their day to
give them an answer.

If you want to talk about googling before you post, then please hit
Google for MINASWAN.

I have created a screencast that is updated version of onlamp.com
Rolling
With Rails for Rails 2.0, check it out:

Just download the source code and watch the screencast. Hope it clears
some
of the confusion.

I’ve got to agree. I find the complaints more grating than repeated
queries. I can easily just leave the queries for others to answer if
I like, the complaints tend to irritate me.

Now then this is Rails-talk not ruby-talk, I wonder if there’s an
equivalent DHHIxSWAx to MINSWAN

Yeah me too, I was too much of a coward to admit it. At least I
admit that I was a coward.

Well a few seconds of googl…er…that is I mean one of the benefits
of MINASWAN is that one doesn’t have to be cowardly about asking
questions :wink:
(And I’ve got way more questions than answers, so this is a good
thing.)
