Very useful list of ressources. I highly recommend to check this out if you're planning on building a Rails app
Sure, I totally agree, maybe I should have used "relatively easy" instead. A lot of the gems on the list I've taught 100+ people who are total beginners to Ruby/Rails and they've found them pretty straightforward to follow the relevant instructions and get features added quickly. I would say Ruby is a lot easier to add plug-ins to than say Wordpress plugins for instance :)
Oh, yeah, for sure. I would dread teaching anything about Wordpress to anyone without a decade's worth of context, ha.
Amen to that brother. I learned Ruby basics on CodeAcademy in a weekend.
After 6 years I can't write 100 lines of code in PHP without an error.
To be fair to beginners, I can't write 10 lines of Ruby without an error and I've been writing code for 12 years. People new to coding think that experts can write code like it's perfect English but I constantly do mistakes.
That said... I don't feel like I'm banging my head against a wall when I do Ruby compared to PHP.
+1 to that. Ruby makes me feel like I can write pretty good code off the top of the my head. PHP.... = :'(
Nice one i have question any good gem which user can make a list? or something like this example (http://www.foodily.com/r/YijaOWC6n-oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookies-by-cheeky-kitchen) the ingredient part i'm building app for my personal and portfolio :D Thank you you can also reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
nevermind this i already found it https://www.ruby-toolbox.com/projects/acts_as_list
You could use the gem or you could just add it as another model onto a Recipe model.
e.g. a Recipe has many Ingredients
So you'd make a new Ingredient model that belongs to the Recipe model. Then you can add in the ingredients into your recipe form using nested attributes. See this Railscast for more details:
Great help folks. thanks for this.
