Topic: a rails app with a command line interface
Hello everyone. I would like to write a rails app in which the user interface is not a website but just a terminal. I'm envisioning the user interacting with my app the way a developer interacts with heroku -- by typing commands at the terminal and getting text responses from the server. I.e., an app that would have worked in the early 1990s.
Basically, I want to get the backend stuff working land tested ike a well-oiled machine and then only worry about the HTML and CSS and JQuery front end stuff at the very end. And I would like to have the terminal command line access to my app available at all times for power users. Is this a feasible idea? Has anyone ever tried this, or do you know of an example?
Thanks for your feedback.
P.S. I'm a relative newbie at ruby and rails, but have about 7 years of java experience. So I have a lot to learn.
