I’m sure this is becoming an FAQ and I apologize. I haven’t quite
found the answers I’m looking for yet and hope you can help.
As a relative noob to Rails I’m trying to figure out how best to
approach my learning of it. I wanted to try to work my way thru Agile
Web D. with Rails and figure out how to create the Depot
application in Rails 2.0. I know people have recommended to not do
that and just work through the book with Rails 1.2.5 instead, but I
don’t really want to spend a lot of time learning methods and
practices that have been deprecated. I was able to get past a few
hurdles but have hit a wall on trying to figure out how to convert a
dynamic scaffold to a static scaffold for an existing model that has a
different controller name (e.g. the old “script/generate scaffold
product admin”) step.
Is working thru the book with an old version of Rails really the best
approach? Then what steps should be followed to retrain my brain to
use the 2.0 methods? Is there a better way to learn Rails 2.0?
