[ANN] RJS Templates for Rails


#1

I’m happy to announce the availability of RJS Templates for Rails
published by O’Reilly.

The book covers all aspects and features of RJS that are included in
Rails 1.1. It also walks through a few examples, debugging with
FireBug, and finishes off with some reference material.

The book is 56 pages and is available in PDF format. I’m really happy
with how the book has turned out and I think you’ll really enjoy it.

You can find the book at http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/rjsrails/

Congratulations Cody! I just purchased your book and it is a great
resource and quick reference for rjs and ajax with rails. For only
$10 I highly recommend it.

Cheers-

Hi,
I’m looking for a sample/tutorial on how to develop an ‘industrial
strength’ data entry/update intensive form-based user-interface, the
sort of thing that human resources use to maintain person records, with
lots of popup picklists, radio buttons, query-by-example, multi-form
(master-detail) screens. Separate screen forms for listing users,
showing a record in form format, editing, searching, are ok, but veteran
users of client/server apps will complain of “too much navigation and
too many screens”. Examples abound of these mini-screens, but none that
put the functionalities together in an integrated whole. Does RJS
Templates for Rails address development of multi-functional forms?

I just picked up mine. Wished I’d had this a few weeks ago :slight_smile: Well done
Cody, nice writing style. I very much like the learn by example style of
writing, coupled with lots of detail !

I love this mini-book concept, $10 or so are no-brainers compared to the
old
$100+ monsters on the shelf. !

Cheers

The short answer is no. However, after reading it you will have a
solid understanding of RJS and how it fits into the Rails framework.
That understanding should help you quickly add Ajax features to your
forms to make them more responsive and intelligent.

What are your plans for future versions? I know it’s only $10 but I
don’t wanna buy too soon if there’s a version 2 just around the
corner, I mean with Rails evolving so fast and all.

Thanks,

Greg,

There is no version 2 planned. It just went online yesterday, so I
think that you are safe to pick it up.

Thanks! I hope people find the link to your excellent article on
effect queues in the very back of the PDF. I wanted to mention them,
but I ran out of time and space.

I have my credit card in my hand and I’m looking forward to reading
this. I see O’Reilly has a “100% guarantee”, but I’m not sure how to
interpret the conditions:

…and it’s a shame that free shipping only starts at orders of $29.95.

:slight_smile:

Seriously, though, it will be great to have a small book that I can read
while commuting (by train) and get immersed in Ajax/Rails.

Bill,

As far as I know there isn’t a forum setup for it, but I’ll ask them
about it. I’m interested in any feedback you’d like to send: ideas
for improvement, errata, questions, etc.

A few errata that were noticed have been fixed and the new version of
the PDF should be online this afternoon.

What sort of feedback would you like? I bought it yesterday and, while
I
haven’t finished it yet, I have some questions. Does O’Reilly have a
forum
set up somewhere for that?

Best regards,
Bill

Cool. Offlist?

And folks who’ve bought it can just download the new version? I didn’t
realize O’Reilly did that. Excellent!

Thanks,
Bill


#19

Bill,

O’Reilly is looking into setting up a forum right now. Until then you
can just post in this thread or email me offlist.

Downloaded my copy yesterday. Read the tutorial , and spot read the
rest.
Good stuff! Well written. This will increase my understanding of RJS
enough
that I may encorporate some of it into my current project. Looking
forward
to the update.
