I sent this to the datamapper mailing list too, hopefully it's ok to
send it to you guys as well. If anyone wants to try it out and point
me at bugs, places in the code where i could do better, anything
rails/railtie and design related in general, I'd really appreciate
that. Thanks in advance!
Also, I must say that i absolutely love rails3. It's just simple plain
The rails3_datamapper  gem finally arrived at a state where it's
really easy to get up and running with datamapper on rails-3.0.0.beta.
All you need have to do is issuing the following commands.
gem install bundler
gem install i18n tzinfo builder memcache-client rack rack-test
rack-mount erubis mail text-format thor bundler
gem install rails --pre
rails dm_rails3_app -m http://pastie.org/814307.txt
Once you have done that, a rails3 datamapper application using one
generated scaffold has been started for you. Point your browser to
to see it in action. Note that currently UJS functionality doesn't
work properly so the 'Destroy' links won't actually destroy anything,
but issue a GET /people/:id request instead. This will change soon
Please have a look at rails3_datamapper's README for detailed
documentation about what's currently possible with datamapper on
rails3. Feel free to report any issues you have back to this mailing
list, ping me in #datamapper on irc.freenode.net or on twitter .
If you don't want to go through the steps of creating a rails3
application on your own computer, consider having a look at
datamapper_on_rails3 . This is a simple sample application
generated by following the steps in the README over at
rails3_datamapper's github page.
Thx for taking the time to have a look
