Rails 3.0 Examples

2010-01-19 13:38:00 +0000

Rails 3.0 has a lot of new features. Getting to understand them can be a challenge. I made a Rails 3.0 repository on github to help everyone get to know some of the new ActiveModel API

It is at git://github.com/mikel/rails-examples/ and has instructions on how to download it and get it running.

It is actually an entire Rails 3.0 App, ready to run. So you just need to clone it, follow the four steps given in the README and you will have Rails 3.0 running on your system.

The models directory contains a bunch of “_person” models that show off each main module of the ActiveModel API piece by piece. The implementations are minimal on purpose to show you what you need to get the thing working… The instant gratification thing :)

Please check it out and let me know what you think, or improvements we can make.

One note, you should update the bundler gem if you are on a bundler version 0.7 or below.
