Why don’t you guy’s get off your ‘high perch’ and write some beginner
to intermediate documentation?
That seemed rather harsh.
The problem I find is that one can spend an enormous amount of time
finding out if some particular app/module/plugin is actually right for
the particular job in hand.
I had a look at the site, and a quick scan of the examples (and
humor). But I was left uncertain if Ruport would do what I wanted. I
have an RoR app, with some printscreens (customer orders etc). Now I
am looking for a better approach and in particular to get pdf files
that can be uploaded for email attachments or stored/printed/faxed
Most of the examples of Ruports seemed to produce a table as an
output, but what I am looking for is more of a flexible layout (eg,
some fields in various positions on the page, and a couple of
positioned tables and a page header and footer, with multiple page
Obviously I am prepared to build these as much as necessary, but I
didnt find any documentation that would get me started on layout and
building a page in a RoR app.
Am I looking to do something that is not appropriate for Ruports, or
should I persevere and dig deeper?
