Cool cool find. Kudos to Nico Schuele for creating this gem
Today I found out about railsbricks. It’s a ruby gem that does the complicated task of setting up trivial functionality for your site like user logins, database configuration, admin pages, and other things like that. Extremely helpful in that endeavor was this blog post, which helped me parse some of the options I was presented with.
I did run into one problem that was not covered in his post, however. It seems the team that makes Postgresql keep moving around their psql.conf file and that causes your application to flip out without some extra configuration. As this was a test application, I went with SQLite3 for my database for simplicity’s sake.
Overall, though, railsbricks is another extremely helpful tool in creating rails apps quickly and conveniently.
