Thanks for the lead Chris and Giles, I immediately got Chris’s advice,
am digging through the ActiveRecord classes in the api. Evening read
the Camping source…
I want everything to be as simple and small as possible, but with
all over the place.
Despite reading the Camping files through, I still get the impression
Camping requires its own mini-server, root access to server or Rails
(and/or ActiveRecord) running in the server memory.
This is not possible with many shared hosters, and in fact, to make code
as universal as possible (aim here), it has to be php/perl-cgi type of
app. Am I reading wrong into the Camping module description?
My motivation for this project is exactly this type of misguided
thinking that does not meet the needs of the larger web-community.
Some of the typical questions that constantly pop up before me, in form
of Ruby APIs and classes, are:
Why is it with Ruby open source developers not supporting the most
hosting solution on the net (shared hosting)?
In my experience 90% of all web projects could very well use a average
shared hosting service (=web hotel) in terms of bandwidth, memory or
Are these guys too “pro” to write software thats not running on a
dedicated server? (lol) Or is it just too difficult for them to get it
working as fast and small as needed? Or is it all just a javanile
inferiority? joking here
Well, may be the solutions are out there, and I am barking up the wrong
tree. The search goes on, thanks for the leads, I hope I can contribute
findings on this forum.
