ExtJS and Rails examples

Hi

I’m looking for some opensource sites or examples where Rails is used
with ExtJS.
I looked at the example on the ExtJS site, witch also is very fine, but
i need some more examples to get further!

So does any of you know some good sites with examples or maybe hole
apps?

Best regards

I can’t help you here, and you won’t find that many resources on the
net either. However, since Rails has this convenient to_json method,
it’s quite easy to integrate with ExtJS. ExtJS has a pretty good
documentation, so you should be focussing on that. Make a mockup
interface using what you can find in the ExtJS examples and docs and
once you’re finished, use rails to fit in the dynamic data.

If you don’t know ruby and/or rails, you should buy the agile web
development with rails book, it’s great to learn the framework. Once
you’ve got the hang of that, you can move on to ExtJS, which is a
Javascript-based components library, no need and overkill to try
learn both at once IMHO.

Thanks for your reply!

I’m actually reading the book you are referring to right now, and i’m
soon done.
I think I will look at the ExtJS examples, and try to incorporate some
Rails!

just create partial parametrised with some objects.
next you can reference those parts by passing some variables to it and
thus have rendering js done quite elegant with pure ruby.

Be sure to check out the EXTJS Rails plugin here…

http://svn.toolbawks.com/toolbawks_extjs/trunk/

It has tight integration with Rails, deploying in a very simple and
automatic fashion.

You can find an entire admin generator here:
http://rails.lipsiasoft.com/projects/show/lipsiadmin

and some working example here:

And let’s not forget the nice new plugin ExtJS Scaffold Generator:
http://inside.glnetworks.de/2008/01/18/announcing-ext-scaffold-
generator-plugin-for-rails/

You can always keep an eye on http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/
search?search=extjs to see if new plugins come out related to extjs

There seem to be some efforts regarding plugins for Rails and Ext JS.
Here are the ones I know of:

  • An “Experiment” providing Rails helpers for Ext JS, looks abandoned
    as code is no longer around: http://extonrails.com/

I recently played with Ext and Rails myself and documented the effort
here:
http://inside.glnetworks.de/2008/01/08/ext-js-and-rails-how-do-they-get-along/

This demonstrates basic solutions for Rails integration and features a
“soon-to-be-announced” Ext Scaffold Generator plugin for Rails - a
preview version is available on Rubyforge:
http://rug-b.rubyforge.org/svn/ext_scaffold

This site is mine. I wrote a rather extensive ruby wrapper framework
for Ext1.0 which I scrapped when Ext2.0 was released. new features,
especially improved component-based architecture and better rendering
rendered my framework obsolete. I’ve since changed my pattern somewhat
but I’ve recently teamed up with another guy from
http://www.extjswithrails.com and I’ve been working on my own blog
lately and created a few new google code projects.

see my blog for links to these projects
http://www.extonrails.com

Jacob,

Please, have a look at the open source framework called Netzke. It
facilitates creation of reusable Rails/ExtJS code, and provides
pre-built widgets like grids, forms, tab/accordion panels,
Viewport-based application, etc.

Blog/tutorials: http://blog.writelesscode.com

Live demo: http://netzke-demo.writelesscode.com

Project’s Wiki: http://wiki.github.com/skozlov/netzke

The Google G. for discussions: http://groups.google.com/group/netzke

Good luck!

See also he book Practical Rails Projects by Eldon Alameda :

A more than 100 pages example on a Ext + Rails project.
It was useful to me.
I think source code is freely downloadable on the website.

Keep your eyes peeled on http://extjs.com/blog.

I have a blog-post about to appear there titled “A Design Pattern for
ExtJS on Rails”.

Hello,

I have made an example app using Rails4 + ExtJS 4.1. For the
authentication, I used Devise. For authorization, I used the_role gem.

The app is live at teamsheet.herokuapp.com

The source code + install instruction can be found at
https://github.com/weyewe/timesheet

The app description can be found at:
http://weyewe.com/rails-extjs-timesheet-tracker
