Do any of you know of a downloadable Rails app that demonstrates all
the bundled AJAX-iness in an impressive form?
I’m looking for two things:
- something I can show off to wow people with Rails’ built-in AJAX
power, then show them the code that does the work and wow them again
with the simplicity. In short, something that will impress potential
customers, as well as developers
- something I can use as a tutorial, both for myself and to bring
others up to speed. I can find plenty of AJAX and/or Rails info
around, but nothing that ties together all the built-in Rails AJAX
info in one place with relatively newbie-friendly documentation and
in-use examples that are visually impressive
Conceptually, I want to have this app sitting on my laptop, so when
the opportunity comes up to be a Rails fanboy, I can fire it up and
show it off. Also, if I need either a brain jogger or a reference for
how some AJAX feature works, I can get it out of the same app in a
reasonable amount of detail.
I don’t particularly want a useful app, just one that shows off all
the Rails/AJAX power in such a way that people will think “Hmm, it’d
be really useful to have that capability in MY app…”.
If such an app doesn’t already exist, I can start to put something
together, but I’m short of available time and my skills are in backend
stuff rather than CSS/UI goodness. I’d strongly prefer to contribute
to a project that already exists, rather than start one from scratch.
Thanks in advance
