#Somewhere out there there’s a decent answer, and I’m a-waiting’

This may not be decent, but i see more and more people clamoring for
uptodate manuals/books/docs on rails. I think it is a very good (if not
great) sign that rails (and the rails community) is exploding in growth.

what i’m trying to get into is: I think it is high time that we have a
Rails magazine or journal of some sort. Not too expensive yet very
handy, very updated…

kind regards -botp

Actually, better than a magazine would be a good set of annotated
documentation hosted at the main site (rubyonrails.org). That was a
strong
driving force in the PHP community, and I think it would go a long way
toward helping newbies on rails. railsmanual.org is okay, but it lacks
a
“getting started” section. All you have is an alphabetical listing of
method and class names, without dividing them into common categories or
tags, and you don’t have anything for a beginner getting started in
rails.
It would be great to have those additions to the current manual. That
would
make it a truly valuable research.

railsn00b.org!

realistically, though, couldn’t you fulfill the goals of a Rails
magazine with a blog?

Or a wiki? http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails
