Greetings rails'ers, Extracted from the development of the-soup.net, I'd like to announce Savage Beast, a rails engine: Savage Beast simplifies the addition of multiple forums to your rails app, associating 1 or more forum to a AR Model instance. For instance adding a forum to a project model, class Project < ActiveRecord::Base has_one :forum, :as => :owner end As this is a engine, overloading is pretty simple - but I must say that the great encapsulation of behaviour in the Beast, makes for an easy isolation of functional concerns, and the above use of before filters was almost all the customization that The Soup needed to integrate multiple forums. http://svn.nnovation.ca/svn/savage_beast/trunk blog entry: http://www.nnovation.ca/admin/articles/show/742 Cheers, Jodi TNG inc the-soup.net "where projects and people meet"
