Wanted to let you guys know that railsmanual.org just got updated with the documentation for the latest versions of Rails: 1.2.0 and 1.2.1. http://railsmanual.org Tip: If you are a firefox user, you can add the bookmark under "Quick Searches" (Command-B to see the side-bar, and it's at the bottom), and map it to a keyword, or letter such as "r". This way you can load up a new tab, Command-T, and type "r link_to" in the location bar and do an instant search on the site. Here is the URL you can put "Location:" field when creating the bookmark. http://www.railsmanual.org/doc/search?name=%s

Thanks for all who made this possible!! Does anyone know if there a similar firefox plugin for the Ruby language, so you can add it as a search option? -- Jeff Barczewski, MasterView core team Inspired Horizons Ruby on Rails Training and Consultancy Next Ruby on Rails plus JRuby workshop Feb 22-24 St. Louis, MO http://inspiredhorizons.com/training/rails/index.html Limited seating, register now!

I think railsmanual is a step in the right direction in otherwise poor manuals for rails in terms of understanding and learning (for us newbies). Any plan to improve server speed? And any plan to improve understanding? I would like more exemplification and comments and get it more like the php-manual, which is really good.

What part of the site is slow? I noticed that the single pages listing all the methods are, but that is somewhat to be expected (due to implementation) as it lists the thousands of methods within the entire framework.

Hmm, it does seem slow, are you using rails page caching at all? Or gzip compression? The original rails docs site (api.rubyonrails.org) is quite fast, despite loading thousands of methods. I know it's in frames, but the frames containing the classes & methods load almost instantly. Of course, all pages are static HTML and not rendered by ruby in real-time. Also, looked at the size of some of your pages compared to sizes on api.rubyonrails.org: Files: - api.rubyonrails.org - 3.5K - railsmanual.org - 126K Classes: - api.rubyonrails.org - 2.6K - railsmanual.org - 126K Methods: - api.rubyonrails.org - 15K - railsmanual.org - 810K And I noticed you are including a lot of methods not included on api.rubyonrails.org. For instance, railsmanual.org lists 142 methods named "setup". Most of them are setup methods for various Test::Unit suites in rails. api.rubyonrails.org doesn't list these. Probably useful for a rails core developer, but not for a typical user of rails docs. Is railsmanual.orgignoring the "nodoc"s? I write all of this because I do want railsmanual.org to succeed and be a useful resource. -- Scott Becker Electro Interactive, Inc. Office: 813-333-5508 http://www.ElectroInteractive.com

This is really nice! Is there an easy way to restrict searches to a particular version of the API, say 1.1.6? Wes

Another developer created something similar for ColdFusion which uses Adobe's Livedocs. I like how you can search for functions or tags and AJAX lists all of the available tags or functions while you type. It is really fast and useful, and could be a used as an example for RailsManual.org (for files, classes and methods). See http://cfquickdocs.com

The only problem for me as a novice is that I have to know what to look for. Would be good if it was divided into areas â€“Â like php. Then it wouldn't be so slow as you come to a first level that doesn't list everything at once.
