Where to put utility code


#1

Hi All,

I am new to “ruby on rails”.

I have some common utility classes.

I am not sure where to put this kind of code. components\ or lib\ ?

Any comment is appreciated!

Advice:
1/ place them in /lib,
2/ make them reloadable

     ex:   lib/my_stuff.rb
         class MyStuff
              include Reloadable
            ...
         end

 => you won't have to restart the server each time you modify them,

in developement mode

Hi,

I tried the reloadable option as described below and got an
uninitialized
constant error. Is this a 1.1 feature? If not, what else needs to
happen
to make this magic work in 1.0?

thanks.
