…next in line are 3 web apps that will me made entirely in Ruby with the help of Why’s very light yet functional Camping, the 4 Kbyte microframework.\nCamping lacks things, and its Markaby is a bit slow compared to RoR’s Erb, but the approach taken by _Why looks very interesting for its simplicity.\n\nI changed the DB connector, not to use the standard SQLite but PostgreSQL, done very rapidly in the dispatch.rb file:\n\n
Camping::Models::Base.establish_connection :adapter => 'postgresql', :host => 'localhost', :port => xxxx, :database => 'camping_db', :username => 'of_course', :password => 'you_wish'\n\n
- Gnu/Linux Debian server
- Lighttpd web server
- PostgreSQL database
- rubyforge’s Camping
Lib’s to pay closer attention:
- Camping::Helpers Â· Camping::Base
- Camping::Mab (for the Markaby(Markup as Ruby)) rdoc here
I’ll add more stuff now on… Of course the intention is making the effort for Camping to gain traction in the web scene. Model-View-Controller, is it to last ?
humm… i’m giving a look on Catalyst, but now its Ruby, not Perl time… for me.
