IronRuby MVC


#1

Hi
I’ve just pushed IronRuby MVC and sent the pull request. AFAICT it
should
bind to Rails ORM/s now at least it creates the necessary objects
(nested
hashes to do so).
I’m going to be sprinting to get my last chapter done this month and get
a
kick-ass introduction to ironruby slide deck together and after that I’m
starting a project in Silverlight with IronRuby for a commercial
product.
That means I won’t be able to spend much time on that framework for the
next 2-3 months until we start building our back-end.

I hope now that the project is fairly done somebody from the community
will
finish it off because:

  • I’ve only verifyfied that the viewresults are working, so some
    JsonResult,
    FileResult etc will probably still need some attention.
  • There are virtually no specs and/or working specs. I will extend
    caricature to have a good working mocking implementation for aspnet mvc
    (now
    I can’t override indexers so I’ll create mock classes in C# to override
    that
    indexer).
  • I haven’t tested all the cases for snake, camel casing
    interoperability
    but on most places it works.
  • it could use some API documentation :slight_smile:
  • More samples are needed

those are just a few items from the top of my head that will still
require
some work.

Some other things:

  • teach ironruby mvc about the gems on the server so you could use those
    if
    they were installed.
  • Provide a way to freeze gems and load them from within the ironruby
    mvc
    application
