Fabio Cevasco is taking us on a tour of Rails-Doc.org which focuses on providing a better interface to Rails documentation by offering two key features : a powerful, fast and useful document search and the possibility to add notes to Rails documentation.
Rails is extremely powerful and I share Fabio's view when he says "When you decided to learn Ruby on Rails (if you did, that is), chances are that you bought a book. I did, too, actually: there are a lot of very interesting and fairly comprehensive books out there after all. I actually never bought a book to learn PHP, in the past though. Why’s that? Well, for two simple reasons: the PHP manual can easily be searched and provides enough documentation, in most cases and when the documentation is not enough, there’s always plenty of comments by experienced developers to save your day."
I don't know about you but every time some news come out about Ruby on Rails, I'm saying to myself: "there is no way this can be any better that it already is". And every time, they manage to find a way to impress me.
This time around, Ryan Daigle talks about the new named_scope feature in his "What's New in Edge Rails: Has Finder Functionality" article.
