I'm looking for resources that would teach me to write Rails applications, RESTful-CRUDy style. I much prefer good exemplary programs to learn from, but could use a good, concise book as well :-) Thanks in advance, Maurice B. Gladwell

I found Geoffrey Grosenbach's PeepCode to be a nice little introduction to REST. http://www.peepcode.com/ Granted you have to pay a small fee but if you're looking for a step-by-step guide to get started it's well worth it. Niall

I've checked out the PeepCode, and it looks good. Also, Jeff, I read your articles and they're *awesome*. Many thanks for publishing them and mentioning them in this thread. Here's my small contribution to this discussion: since opening it, I've managed to find two example applications created as showcases of RESTful-CRUDy design and implementation: RestBlog: http://alisdair.mcdiarmid.org/2006/08/02/restblog-... restolog: http://code.google.com/p/restolog/ Another great resource is the "RESTful Rails Development" booklet by the b-simple.de guys, here (PDF): http://www.b-simple.de/documents/download/6 To sum up, there's plenty of good material about Rails-REST-CRUD out there, though the above-mentioned seem like the cream of the crop. -- M.
