ExtJS On Rails

September 23, 2009

If you are looking to give ExtJS a spin, I’ve created a Rails Application Template to setup a Rails app with ExtJS installed. To use it, just do:

rails -m my-extjs-app

To see a sample of this in use, take a look at this Rails app. It is a port of Chapter 1 of ExtJS In Action to Rails. Assuming you have Rails 2.3.2 installed, you should be able to download the Rails app from that git repo, run script/server and then try out the app at http://localhost:3000.

UPDATE: This code actually refers to the code in the sample chapter on the Manning website. Chapter 1 in the latest version of the book has actually been completely re-written, so I’ve included the sample chapter in the git repo. Also be sure to check out the author’s blog which covers the development of the book.
