List of Nitro Powered sites?


#1

Hi all…

I’ve been busy on my researches, and have some time to connect back with
the
Og/Nitro gang. Actually I’d like a nice mature, non-rails ruby bases
web
deployment system to generate interest in FOSS development in my local
(geographical) area.

There is no reason to not do Rails, it is a career move for some people
I
think. I tend to thin the Nitro way is ‘better’. I also think that
mono-culture is a poor substitute for thinking. To mis-use Tolkein,
“There
can NOT be only one framework to rule them all”. For me.

I would like some example URI-s for Nitro powered and Nitro derived web
sites that you Know or Own?

Thanks for you help, in advance.

aloha,
_w_/

Hi William.

The Nitro world has gone quiet. George stopped actively developing it
and
the Og ORM was spun off into its own project.

Take a look at ramaze http://ramaze.net/ for a non-rails web stack
with a
very similar feel to nitro. It plays nice with about every view/template
technology and ORM you can think of - including the sucky ActiveRecord
and
the lovely Og - and you can be up and running as quick as you can type:

require ‘ramaze’

class MainController < Ramaze::Controller
def index
“hello”
end
end

Ramaze.start

With nary a database configuration in sight.

Cheers,
Dan

Indeed, I am not working on the public Ruby version of Nitro any more
(although I am maintaining a heavily customized version used on
http://www.me.gr)

However, I am working on a JavaScript version of Nitro:
www.github.com/gmosx/nitro

It’s at the very early stages (ie it is expected to change a lot) and
the
philosophy is quite different than the old Ruby version.

If you liked the old version you should indeed check out Ramaze.

regards,
George.

Thanks Dan / George.

I got into the new OgDen project but there is a problem with some new
facets, I think. I will definitely have a look at
ramazehttp://ramaze.net/,
my ‘thing’ of course is organisational ecology; I’m thinking that a
healthy
Ruby community needs 3 or 4 examples of a “web framework”-s.

I am interested to know if there are Nitro powered web sites still.

As an aside, I recommend the March-2008

In there, they have substituted ActiveRecord with scalable hibernate
(and it
is faster than Ruby 1.9)

Also for those not looking, NetBeans lets you configure a project to
target
–> Ruby 1.9, Ruby 1.9, JRuby and Groovy from the same nice IDE. I’m
sorry
to say I find Eclipse dysfunctional now (netbeans doesn’t do Git yet).

I don’t mention this much; this is a good time to comment. I’m into
knowledge management and sensemaking (some overlap with semantic
computation). The nice people on the
freemindhttp://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/FreeMind_0.9.0:_The_New_Featuresproject
have instanced
groovyhttp://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/FreeMindGroovyObjectsas
the script language.

That’s just “news” for the gang. Often as not, I’m last to know such
things. :slight_smile:
