Don Ziesig, thanks for bringing up the hobo gem for rapid prototyping. Now I know that I wasn’t the first person to think of the idea of streamlining the process of starting a Rails site instead of having to follow all of the steps in chapters 3 through 9 of Rails tutorial. I learned a lot from creating my copy_rails_tutorial gem, but I now see that my rapid prototyping gem is very crude.
From a Google search, I see that there are many other rapid prototyping gems as well. I’d like to hear from those of you who like to use these rapid prototyping gems. Which one do you prefer, and why do you prefer that rapid prototyping gem over the others? I’m sure that they all have their share of strengths and weaknesses.
