For a while now I have been developing on rails on windows, not the happiest choice for all “blog driven development”
My secret to happy trails, Mingw distribution of Git for windows, because it brings what I want, mingw , msys and git. Short story, msys took over the command line, and now I dont have to think in windows shell no more.
Time flies, I’m glad this plugin has made it through to rails 2.3.4 !!!!
My first rails app is still in use; I just got another couple of years of life injected to it by way of M&A .
Well that’s all good, I’m using this opportunity to upgrade it to rails 2.3.x, set up for friendly deployment etc.
So, Active Scaffold has become my replacement for all the supporting CRUD which used to be drab scaffold based HTML.
Now… small controllers, nicer UI ..
So far the only thing that makes little sense is the not-getting the pluralization rules in the tons of examples and demos found on the site. Which is slightly weird, but WHATEVER, cause it all works.
