Yes, that is one of the things that MasterView would help with. You can
start from a pure html prototype and add in MasterView attributes to
dynamic. And you can go back into dreamweaver or other editor and
at any point in the development lifecycle.
So it makes it great for designers to be able to create prototypes and
developers just sprinkle the prototype with some attributes to make it
dynamic. And the designer can go back in later and tweak things if need
Plus you don’t have to give up any of the nice rails functionality
partials, helpers, etc), MasterView keeps all the power of rails that
have with erb (rhtml) since it uses rhtml under the covers.
I will be putting together a demonstration video about how to start from
prototype very soon. Right now the demos show starting from scratch
generator. There is documentation for the attributes so you can get
but I just don’t have any example videos ready yet.
