Topic: Forums

I come from a PHP background and have moved to a new company who are using Rails. We want to implement a forum and I seem to have hit a brick wall when it comes to opensource options - what is the most mature forum system out there built in Rails? This forum system seems pretty robust - is it available (to buy a copy of or as opensource)?

Re: Forums

can anyone please help me out by telling me about how to integrate bio metrics i.e., finger print scanner using ruby on rails

Re: Forums

scottybowl, this forum is not built using Rails, it is a punbb php forum.
No point re-inventing the wheel when there is so much out there that hasn't been written yet.

Rails is a superb dev environment and there are plenty of gems out there that will help you build a forum from scratch, but why bother when there are ready built forums that you can pretty much customise yourself to however you want them.

What you want and what you need are too often not the same thing!
When your head is hurting from trying to solve a problem, stop standing on it. When you are the right way up you will see the problem differently and you just might find the solution.
