I’m just starting with Og. I love the way it’s put together and the way
feels to work with it and I think I’ll be able to do great things with
Congatulations to all concerned.

Makes the database, table and makes sure it’s all up to date! Are you
kidding? This is SO easy. So good.
I have comments which I hope can be helpful in showing what I
Sensitive to how these posts can sound I’d like to emphasize that my
intention is not to whine, but to point out how hard it is for newbies
get a purchase in here. I’d also like to help if I can.
- There are a lot of dead ends that a newbie encounters when trying to
understand Og. There’s the beautiful http://www.nitroproject.org/ with
documentation with version 0.42 (but the version number is very hard to
find). The online repository seems to have not been altered since June
- When I try to add a note to the Fora (prior to which I was
to get an OpenId) I find that having composed a post, the post button is
ignored (Firefox / Windows). A few words on the front page describing
things are would be so golden. Sometimes just a sentence or two of
status can be so helpful.
When I do a gem install og I seem to get Og 0.41, yet I see mentions
0.50. What is the latest release? When is 0.50 going to be released.
worry when I see so much heavy lifting and refactoring going on in the
codebase that 0.50 is not going to be for a while. This means that I
know what to concentrate on 0.4x or 0.5.
The most active forum seems to be this one
(http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/nitro-general) but I can’t see
search it! This makes a lot of the knowledge tied up in it
Finding a few paragraphs that describe and give examples of
and schema_inheritance is quite a challenge. Having looked around a
I have gleaned snippets from tests. Could someone consolidate these and
them into the source code so RDoc at least can find them?
I grabbed the latest version from the darc’s repository, since people
were saying “Don’t use the 0.4x, use the latest”. This was tricky
but that’s another story. But I found that SchemaInhertance doesn’t
work. (Og::SchemaInheritanceBase is missing?). And I can’t find any
files to see how I should use polymorphism.
I installed the latest version via gem. I made the gems myself
to the instructions I found. But this was tricky since a) the rake
seems to assume a unix-y shell and so didn’t work too well and b) once I
doing it on a Linux box the code to transfer the .gemspec’s into the
directory didn’t seem to work.
If any of this can be delegated to me with guidance please give it a
I think my main hope in this is to get someone - George maybe - to write
short paragraph that can be put around (on rubyforge and nitroproject)
saying "Hi! The team and I working on stuff like crazy. Here’s where
at. If you just want to play use 0.4x - be aware that ___ and ___ have
massively re-written also don’t worry about the startup speed, that’s
fixed too. If really need the new features, you’ll need to pull from the
repo, however, be aware that ___ and ______ are not working right now.
will be fixed tomorrow, but _____ doesn’t look too close at all. If you
want to contribute or discuss, use ____ forum, since we don’t look at
others too much. My timeframe for a general release for Nitro and Og
is _____." Or something. This would have made my entry into Og much
Thanks and sorry for the long post.
