What´s the best way to extend a rails base application?.
I explain myself.
I have been writting an e-commerce application and while in production
extending it to client needings.
I have rewritten the code adding the new features and controlling all
these changes with subversion.
Now I would wish to modularize the application starting with the
simplest possible e-commerce application and having all the "extra"
I have been taking a look at engines but I´m not sure if I need this
level of complexity.
I also know generators but I don´t feel confortable with this approach.
What´s the best way to isolate a base application and keep growing it
with new features?.
*add,overwrite models,controllers,helpers methods
*add,overwrite views with possibility to render the overwritten view
from the new view.This is the most complex part because several modules
could overwrite the same view.
*for css,js and images I´m not sure if i would use generators or perhaps
the posibility to define several public directories with preference
Any suggestions?. Thanks
Excuse my poor english.
