There are couple of cheat sheets about Ruby on Rails and related technologies can be found in the web. I decided to collect all of them (almost all) in one post just to keep them in mind. All of them are in full color PDFs or PNGs.
My friends often asked me how to upload file using AJAX, and usually they got answer “in no way”. Correct answer, but what if I need to upload file without full page reloading? And, of course, I want to use RJS in this case. Here I’ll explain what to do to get effect very similar to AJAX file upload (btw, Gmail uses this technique).
Several days ago my best friend Alexey Kovyrin asked me to help him to create flashing effect on HTML page. I gave him advice to create this effect using moo.fx library. I wanted to show how to extend it, but I couldn’t keep from creating this effect myself.
In my previous post I’ve described several simple AJAX plugins. Now I’ll show how to use one of them — ajax_form — in real applications. I think this is the most powerful plugin therefor I’ll dwell on it more elaborately.
Today I’ve created simple AJAX-enabled plugins for Smarty. I don’t try to develop powerful reach-applications framework. I can give you only idea how to integrate AJAX-technology into Smarty. But if you have any offers how to improve anything I’ve described or if you just want to leave feedback please post you comments on my site.
