Is there anything, anywhere, that I can read that discusses overall RoR
app design? I have the Agile RoR book, which is great for learning the
details of RoR, but unfortunately doesn’t cover the overall issue of
creating a large, complex RoR app.
My staff and I are still in the process of getting up to speed on Ruby
and RoR, but we also need to begin thinking about the best approach to
converting our very large and complex Win32 (Delphi) DB app over to RoR.
For (simple) example, our app currently has 42 DB tables. Would it be
considered bad design in RoR to have 42 separate controllers, or should
we create one generic controller that handles all the basic CRUD for all
I believe there are some new RoR books coming out later this year, which
may help, but we could really use some help right now.
Thanks to all who respond!
P.S. I see that the 37Signals guys are putting on a workshop where they
discuss things such as big-picture design. Sounds like maybe something
I should attend…
