New site built using Ruby on Rails

("Peña, Botp") #1

#I wanted to introduce you to my latest site, palmsphere.com, which
#was built using 100%
#Ruby. PalmSphere was created to provide an easy-to-use site for
#users to find and download
#applications for their mobile devices, like Palm, Pocket Pc, etc. We
#were amazed at how easy
#RoR made application development and had enough time left over at the
#end of the project to
#implement Ajax in several places to make the user experience more
#natural and responsive.

cool and clean.
maybe you can include: powered by RoR on your site. This way, google will hit you when i search for ror.

btw, your site is already popular among ajaxist :slight_smile: sample http://www.ajaxian.com/archives/2005/08/palmsphere_mark.html

Care to share your code :slight_smile:

I would love to include Powered by RoR on the site, but honestly, users simply don't
care what the site is powered by. That's why we decided not to advertise anything
about the underlying technologies -- even though the geek in me would love too :slight_smile:

I noticed the Ajax crowd picked up on our site really quickly. I was honored to have
a site I participated on blogged by Dion himself. I used to read a lot of his stuff when
I was mired in the Java world.

As for sharing the code, honestly, there really isn't much to share. RoR makes things
so simple, that almost everything becomes 1 or 2 lines of code, and all of these
code snippits are already available on the web. The one thing you'll likely want to
have is the ability to mark favorites without forcing users to log in; for this use this
pattern:
