We’ve all seen the job listings. We know what they’re looking for.
Rockstars. Code Monkeys. Rails Ninjas.
And you’re left thinking, “But I’m just a programmer.” Well, not
anymore. Today, you become a Rails Kung-Fu Master!
“Not me,” you say. “I’ve already tried using all the acts_as_something
plugins and all the something_fu plugins; and I’m still not a Rockstar
or a Ninja. I’m barely a Code Simian!”
Sounds like you’ve tried the rest - now try the best! That’s right:
it’s the new and improved ActsAsFu Rails plugin!
Three Easy Steps to Becoming a Rails Kung-Fu Master:
Stop web server
./script/plugin install http://svn.offtheline.net/plugins/acts_as_fu
Start web server
(note: if you’re using mongrel_cluster, thin, piston, or anything like
that, these instructions don’t apply to you - you figure it out
yourself, you Rockstar Ninja!)
Now you’re on your way to programming stardom! Catch ya on fame’s
backside, my friend!
Bonus Round: If you work on a team, don’t forget to check this awesome
plugin into your repository (or as the ninjas say, svn ci -m ‘added
l33t skillz’). Your teammates will undoubtedly be very impressed by
your jujitsu karate haxxing abilities. If you push it up to your
production server, your boss might even give you a raise!
Want to hone your Rails Ninja Rockstar Kung Fu? Then the ActsAsFu
plugin is exactly what you’ve been waiting for!
