It has been a while since I posted something new. But I have a few articles in mind that I will post soon.
The first one is something that I discovered a few days ago. The fantastic toolkit Google Gears that enables webapplications to work offline has met RoR.
2 students, Michael Marcus and Rui Ma, have made it all possible. I haven’t had the time to play with it yet, but I’m working on a small project now that fits the need to experiment with.
Becouse crud-actions over http can be simulated, we can use the same views and controllers like we would use for a normal online application.
The two students hope they can make it available as a plugin soon, so it can be used in existing projects.
For more info, check out the Gears on Rails project page.
