Rails2 Documetation.

Hello !

I started to learn the ruby on rails 2(!) and I have many problems with

documentation. I’m new in this, and I don’t know difference between 1x

and 2x versions of rails, oh , yes, I can see difference after seen

error messages in

firefox, removing this documentation, and adding this sites to

markedlist =)

This really depends on what version of Rails you have installed? In general,

if you have questions and/or need information about the current version of

Rails, I would recommend taking a look at the following:

http://api.rubyonrails.org

I never seen the tutorial or 1 of 4 books (received from friend of

mine) is worked, after reading 50 pages I understand that is for old

version and does not works for me, tutorials does not works too. =(( I

killed much time for broken documentation. I know only one place where

documentation is actual is http://guides.rubyonrails.org/ , but it is

not enough for learning.

First, I would highly recommend getting a good book. Thus, I would recommend

getting a copy of “Agile Web Development with Rails 3rd” by Dave Thomas et al.

Next, if you’re working with Rails 2.3.2 in conjunction with the above book, I would

recommend taking a look at the following links:

http://guides.rubyonrails.org/2_3_release_notes.html

http://pragprog.wikidot.com/changes-in-rails-2-3

I have
Rails 2.3.2

I'll buy this book today, and I like this tutorials that you adviced.
Thanks you. But I'd be happy see many more advices =))

Yes, this is indeed a good book. Just one con: it develops the
application before writing the tests. 3rd edition is also just
recently released, so the examples match recent rails version.

Next, if you're working with Rails 2.3.2 in conjunction with the
above book, I would recommend taking a look at the following links:

http://guides.rubyonrails.org/2_3_release_notes.html

Thanks for these links.
