Hallo there, i'm currently doing my final year project and currently
in my final year and 2 more semesters to go in my local university.
my lecturer told me that i can choose a language to build a web app on
my own. since ROR is new to most of us and i read news how easy it is
to use ruby to built apps from various sources. but i'm still
wondering where is a good start to learn ROR. my back ground is that i
did some lessons on php. and my last project of php involves me to
built a system to manage students who lives in the hostel.
in short. my FYP requires me to built a system that can manage a shop
that only sells toilet bowl and sink, plus possible franchise
branching. hahah, this project its so funny that i took the project in
request... but soon know that its not just a small fish that i can
here's what i can imagine so far, my system need to be able to record
new stock and record it like a stock keeper do and register new model
if its so new that this is the companies latest model with a picture.
the management need to set price for the different models that they
got. than if some one buys a few toilet bowl. my system need to be
able to deduct the stock and come out a delivery order for the stock
keeper. the casher need to be able to print an invoice if the buyer
pays by cheque Or print a receipt if buyer pays by cash. and all print
have letter head attached to it page by page.
then heres another part of the system that can check which branch have
stock for a certain model of toilet bowl or give a summery on the
stock on different branches.
i'm given 8 months to complete this project. but i don't think i need
2 months to complete this project so that i have more time fooling my
self on other subjects or do more part time job in mc D to pay my
1.my question is, can i built this system using ROR? i can imagine
building it using php. but i really want to learn ROR
2.hmm... i was wondering if i print a receipt, if the item list got so
long, my printer will split the page in two, where the header will be
print at the first page and no header on the next page. and the length
of the page is inconsistent if the item list differs.. how do i
overcome this? i can imagine that the company have already have a
header printed on the paper first then set the margin for the printer
to avoid printing on the header. but, i don't think this will amaze my
3.can anyone send me a link where's the best place to read so that i
can learn more about ROR?
