Entire site examples?

I’ve been using Rails for a couple of months now and I’m getting into the swing of things, though I plan to recreate my project soon and start again applying everything I’ve learnt since I started. There are still quite a few things I’m not totally sure about… for example, the way I’m doing parameter validation, it all works fine and is DRY compliant, I’m just not sure if I’ve missed anything glaringly obvious that could save me time. The same goes for how I’ve done a lot of things.

So I’m wondering if there are any complete examples out there (i.e the entire site), created by respected Rails developers that people like me can use as an example of how best to develop a Rails app. I’d like something that uses a wide range of functionality and techniques, if possible.

Cheers Ian
