This is a full draft, but it's not yet complete. In particular, I'm considering replacing Blueprint CSS with Bootstrap for the final version. Please let me know what you think.
Also, huge fan of this tutorial. It got me started with Rails a year ago. Best resource I used to learn rails.
Is this still the way to go? I like the idea of duplicating rows because it simplifies the associations a lot, but I've been warned against it. Is that the way you would do it?
Thanks in advance!
Well, this tutorial already weighs in at more than 500 pages. That's pretty in-depth if you ask me. :-) But producing more advanced content in the future is definitely a possibility.
And while I'm here, there is a bug in the 3.0 edition in section 11.3.4, listing 11.39. The link_to "delete" needs to reference 'feed_item', not 'micropost'. That took me a good half an hour to sort out - mainly because I assumed it was my fault, not yours! :-)
Thanks for all your efforts here; this is a fantastic resource.
As far as the transition goes, that's a great candidate for a blog post, but it's not as good a fit for a book. Plus, experience shows that starting from scratch often takes less time in the end.
Thanks for fixing the bug.
Thanks Michael for you contribution!
It's just I want to be deploying to just a generic server running rails and I want to know how the process is different. I know you have to set the ENV to production but at what stage of the process does this happen etc...
I actually think bootstrap is a good idea but might result in a distraction since it is a big framework.
Great job with this tutorial!
