I'm kind of new to Ruby on Rails, I've been slowly learning it for a
while now, and think I am ready to further my learning, by actually
attempting to make a site. I've already made a site and styled it, I
only need to now include the code behind it. I figure there is only so
much you can learn, before you actually start to put it in practice,
and once I start to code this site, I'll learn things on the way. I
heard ruby has one of the greatest and strongest communities
surrounding it, so I look forward to your guys help.
Before, I make this site though, I don't know where to get started.
The site will be a game site, and I'd hoped to just load all of the
flash swf's into a folder, then use controllers to call each one. I
plan on having tons of game though, so is there an easier way to
generate urls for them, and creating an index page that will list
games? Could I create a database that includes columns such as path
to .swf, title, description, and genre? Then automatically call them,
when the user types in a path.
- the user types in the address http://site.com/games/billysadventure
or clicks on a automatically generated link
-Ruby on Rails then knows to look for the entry billysadventure in the
-Ruby takes the rest of the info for the entry and displays it in it's
correct locations on the page
If this is really complex, I don't expect you to write out specific
instructions, but if it's reasonable, that would be really, really
nice. Otherwise, could you at least point me in necessary directions,
so I can find out the way to do everything. Thanks for all or any help
Let me know if I am unclear, and I'll restate it.
