in the city
I gave Sinatra a go this week. I first tried it out while breaking off part of a rails app that wanted to go off on it’s own. Sinatra wasn’t the right thing for that. Not into rewriting controllers and views for this.
I’ve nearly decided to use it to redo one of my sites, however, so we will see. The other possibility i am considering is using Ramaze. I think it might be that Ramaze looks like it has better documentation and seems to have a decent size community. It also might be because i like saying, “RA-MA-ZE!!!”
Not quite sure yet. I’ll post my recount of the processes and a description of the aftermath here.
I’ve also been toying around with Textmate. Im not quite sure if it is exactly what I’m looking for. I know. I’m developing on a mac and NOT USING TEXTMATE?? How can this be?? I guess I’ve just never minded that the free IDEs I use are, well, free. Using Netbeans has been mostly painless (6.1- not so sure yet) and i like practicing my vi when it’s not so painless.
So… found a situation where I am not crazy about using Netbeans and vi would take me longer than a gui to do what is needed. I’m going to give TM the trial month and see if it is really worth the $80. Yes I know there are half off coupons floating around most of the time.
Also, I won a Macbook Air at Railsconf. Anyone want to buy it?
Macbook Air 1.8Gb Intel Core 2 Duo, 2Gb RAM, 64GB Solid State Drive
This thing retails $3098.00+tax. Ill sell this one Sealed in box for 3000. Saves you about 315 dollars.
Email me if interested.
