I'm resending this since it did not come back to me (and no replies either), so I think it may not have got through at all. Apologies if you receive multiple copies.
Is there a FAQ for this list? Is someone considering setting one up? Perhaps as a collaborative wiki that is kept roughly current and can be referred to directly by list members...
Here are some of the questions that I can think of... 1. How do I set a default homepage? (this is the one that reminded me to ask about a FAQ) 2. How do I upload files? 3. How do I perform a search? 4. What are the form helpers? 5. How do I process images, create thumbnails, etc? 6. Does Rails scale? 7. How does Rails compare with J2EE? 8. Is there anyone really using Rails for a big site? (I can already see you smile) 9. What is a good Rails host? 10. What is a good shared host? 11. Which server OS would you recommend for Rails? 12. Deployment with Apache + FCGI 13. Deployment with Apache + Litespeed 14. Deployment with Apache + Mongrel 15. How do I use RadRails? 16. What is a good editor/ IDE? 17. How do I use Capistrano? 18. How do I create a drop down list from the contents of a table? 19. How do I do user login? 20. Is there a way to do role based access? 21. What are good books to read for Rails? 22. What are good books to read for Ruby? 23. How do I import a CSV? 24. How do I write out a PDF? 25. Why do checkboxes not work as expected? 26. How do I do background tasks? 27. Any good CMS for Rails? 28. Any good tutorials? 29. How do I do internationalization in Rails? 30. How do I use AJAX? 31. Is there a good drop down calendar plugin? 32. Is there a good drop down time plugin? (<<-- I'd like to know) 33. How do I reset sessions? 34. How do I set up Rails?
I just picked up that by scrolling through some of the mails that I have saved over the months... I know all these answers are there somewhere, but I'm just wondering if there's a meta-version that points to the correct places.
Does anyone have the bandwidth to kick start this? Cheers Mohit.
