Topic: scriptagloucs

hi  guys

i am newbie for rails and in my application i need to develop page like we see in igoogle.com,pageflakes.com,netvibes.com.So how to start to get such type of functionality
plz help me?

S.S

Re: scriptagloucs

just open the terminal and run: rails --d=mysql pageflakes

this is a new feature in rails, an application that uses pageflakes, ultra cool! It's like magic as everything else in Rails! Or start here, http://www.jquery.com, http://www.prototypejs.org and learn more about javascript and ajax requests.

@vermin the admin in me is thinking that was a little mean to do to a noob. The developer in me wants to also add that for the front end, you just need to open Photoshop and go to Filters - Render  - Cool layout (note, this assumes you have Photoshop CS2+).

Personally, if I were doing one of these sites, for the front-end, I would go with jQuery + the Interface plug-in over prototype/scriptaculous. I just like jQuery better and find it more flexibile and easier to use. Plus, there are a lot more plug-ins available.

There's a good Railscast on integrating jQuery with your rails app here:
