Topic: mash up of different apps
I'm a newb at Rails and Ruby (R/R) and here to the forums so please move this thread to the proper place if I miss posted.
I tried to do some searching on "mash up"s but the forums didn't really come up with what I was looking for.
What I'm trying to do is pick up applications from different projects and build them into 1 larger project.
I would like to stick with all R/R.
cms, forums, one off type of apps.
I do realize that logins/db and such will need to communicate with each other ... have done similar things in PHP.
I just had to "basically" fix links, combine login routines, calls to the db (mysql), and such.
My problem is with my R/R skills and understanding of Rails which is still at 1 week of goofing around with installing different apps and gems.
1.) Is this possible with Rails?
2.) what should I look into or watch out for?
3.) can I just pull in the app files (MVHC) or do I have to rake those sections and then copy/paste the code?
ugh, sorry for the silly questions it's just that my PHP understanding is making life with R/R a little difficult at the moment, I keep trying to remember that I need to rethink/relearn what I have learned ....
