Handcar on Rails


#1

Dear Friends of Rails, I would like to make a suggestion:

There are two famous (German) projects out there: SelfHTML [1] and
SelfPHP [2], which are some kind of on- and offline (!) documentations.
They contain a nearly complete reference and some tutorials.

Is anyone interested in helping me to build something similar for Rails?

I just have some ideas (like the name and the domain: handcar.de), so
any help will be appreciated.

With kind regards

Nicolai Reuschling

Nicolai,

If I understand you correctly, I think devboi already does this, online
and offline for Ruby on Rails (firefox anyway):

http://devboi.mozdev.org

Tracy,

thanks for the link. I wasn’t aware of that Firefox plugin.
It looks pretty neat, but isn’t this just a link collection to online
documents. I had a solution in mind, having all the files offline in
HTML files. Anyway I will have a second look at it.

I just installed devboi and it’s fairly nice. It has CSS/HTML docs too
which is a great bonus. As for offline capability, notice that there
are 2 separate downloads - one for online, one for offline. You also
need to install Rails support separately.

One thing that’s missing (AFAIK), is search. Often I know a section of
the name of something I need, but not what class it’s in. The FF search
seems to ignore the devboi frame, even when it has focus.
