Rails Newbie | Advice please?

Hi Guys…

I am looking to create a Rails app for a Property Company that will
allow for the administration of property, adding, editing, deleting
etc… That will tie in with a CRM database so that information can
be crossed referenced.

The project would be to create a Frontend and Backend Solution for the
client. I am just seeking out people’s opinions on which way to
proceed… Which gems would work better than others. ANy do’s or
dont’s etc…

Hope to hear from ya’ll soon…

Thanks

Mike

I think you’ll get better quality answers if you start building and then
ask specific questions as they come up. A few thoughts though,

For CRM you could use Highrise (http://www.highrisehq.com) and integrate
with its API which I believe is on its way (
http://forum.highrisehq.com/forums/2/topics/7 ).

If you’re just starting with Rails then you’ll get some benefit out of
studying the Agile Web D. with Rails book, or perhaps the
source code of a rails app that allows creation/deletion/modification of
items, for example SimpleLog ( http://www.simplelog.net )

I concur, start the project and when you run into a snag, then come
ask. There’s probably a million different ways you could do this so
pick one you think is right and run with it.
