ExtJS and Rails examples

I can’t help you here, and you won’t find that many resources on the net either. However, since Rails has this convenient to_json method, it’s quite easy to integrate with ExtJS. ExtJS has a pretty good documentation, so you should be focussing on that. Make a mockup interface using what you can find in the ExtJS examples and docs and once you’re finished, use rails to fit in the dynamic data.

If you don’t know ruby and/or rails, you should buy the agile web development with rails book, it’s great to learn the framework. Once you’ve got the hang of that, you can move on to ExtJS, which is a Javascript-based components library, no need and overkill to try learn both at once IMHO.

Best regards

Thanks for your reply!

I'm actually reading the book you are referring to right now, and i'm soon done.
I think I will look at the ExtJS examples, and try to incorporate some Rails!

just create partial parametrised with some objects.
next you can reference those parts by passing some variables to it and thus have rendering js done quite elegant with pure ruby.

Be sure to check out the EXTJS Rails plugin here…

http://svn.toolbawks.com/toolbawks_extjs/trunk/

It has tight integration with Rails, deploying in a very simple and automatic fashion.
