[ANN] Administrative Console Screencast

The first administrative console screencast is now available at:

http://screencasts.visualjquery.com/demo1/

I’ve posted a bunch about the Admin Console, but it’s essentially an
automated scaffold that works as an engine.

The screencast is a quick overview of the minor things you’ll need to do
in models, environment.rb, and others, as well as ::drumroll:: a demo of
the console in action.

I love video demos.

Yehuda, that looks really good (the admin console, not just the demo).

Thanks. The demo is a bit rough around the edges. I’m still learning the
ropes. I’ll have another demo within the next week.

I also plan to do demos to show how the admin console handles STI, and
some more complicated configuration options. I wrote the engine for a
real-life application, so it already does a lot of things you probably
wouldn’t think of if you wrote it as an exercise.

Does it work with Dr Nic’s Magic Models
(http://drnicwilliams.com/2006/08/07/ann-dr-nics-magic-models/), or do I
need to provide a way to generate the associations for all
classes/tables first?

Cheers

It reflects on associations (via reflect_on_association and
reflect_on_all_associations), so MM would need to set up the macros in
advance in order for the admin console to make use of them.

I plan to do a screencast showing how the Admin Console works with MM
sometime soon.

Biggest thing for me is the resolution. Would make it much better to
drop it
down to at least 1024 if it wasn’t already, and if it was, then 800x600.
I
had to really focus on the screencast to see the super small type in the
files and such.

Also, would be excellent to not so much see what is actually happening
with
the models linking directly to the schema, but to just hear a bit more
about
the explaination of what is really going on. I had to make a few
assumptions
when you jumped into the demo of the interface about how the models were
handled and such.
