Lamp Switched On, Rails Illuminated
Got some mails from you folks wanting to report the feature story at O’Reilly’s ONLamp.com, a whopping five-page intro to setting up a Rails environment on Windows. Written by Curt Hibbs, who maintains the Windows Installer, WxWindows bindings and his half of FreeRIDE.
This is an awesome article. Thick and juicy with screenshots and not a dull moment. Each page sensibly cruises through Ruby, then through a few database tables, then fleshing out a simple cookbook application. This is definitely a hot link, pass this ON. Curt, we’re proud of you, well done.
We should offer a translation for OS X.
I totally adore the little graphic they gave Rails. Mama, we got the loot. Let’s gid outta here! Choo-choo!
This is rich. It’s all been slashied. Someone call Natalie Portman, I have hot grits in my pants.
