[ANN] Administrative Console Update

Hi guys,

I just wanted to announce the imminent release of the next revision of
my autoDB Administrative Console.

Now with:

  • Validations
  • A ton of association-related bug fixes
  • The ability to include the fields in belongs_to models into the form
    itself
  • AJAX improvements
  • Fixes to activate/deactivate and destroy
  • Rudimentary support for layouts

Also, I made a change to the way the Engine gets its stylesheets. Rather
than include them directly in the helper that produces the list and
forms, I now require that you include those files in the default layout.

I will be committing the revision sometime tonight, and you’ll be able
to get it at http://trac.visualjquery.com/admin_console

I will also be doing a screencast of the Admin Console in the next
couple of days. Also, if anyone’s interested in helping with the
development, please contact me offlist at wycats :AT: gmail :DOT: com

Unfortunately, getting it working is not 100% obvious, and the
documentation is sparse. I’ll do some documentation on the wiki tonight,
which should help enterprising users get up and running.

I’ll also post some more details on how it works, and special things I
did to make it work better, later tonight.

I highly recommend spending some time on an introductory tutorial or a
video to demonstrate what it does. There is so many Ruby/Rails
extensions/plugins coming out it is getting hard to pay attention to
them all!

A video would rock. Damn. Why didn’t I think of that before…
