Ajax on Rails

Ajax on Rails Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Learn to build dynamic, interactive web applications using the two most important approaches to web development today: Ajax and the phenomenally efficient Ruby on Rails platform. This book teaches intermediate to advanced web developers how to use both Ajax and Rails to quickly build high-performance, scalable applications without being overwhelmed with thousands of lines of JavaScript code. More than just recipes, you also get a thorough, low-level understanding of what's happening under the hood.

  • Ajax on Rails includes three fully worked out Rails/Ajax applications, and quick reference sections for Prototype and script.aculo.us.
  • Testing lessons show you how to eliminate cross-browser JavaScript errors and DOM debugging nightmares using a combination of Firebug, and Venkman.
  • Advanced material explains the most current design practices for Ajax usability. You'll learn to avoid user experience mistakes with proven design patterns.
Beyond the how-to, Ajax on Rails helps you consider when Ajax is (and isn't) appropriate, and the trade-offs associated with it. For those new to Rails, this book provides a quick introduction, the big picture, a walk through the installation process, and some tips on getting started. If you've already started working with Rails and seek to deepen your skill set, you'll find dozens of examples drawn from real-world projects, exhaustive reference for every relevant feature, and expert advice on how to "Ajaxify" your applications.

Book News Annotation:

This guide for web developers explains how to use Ajax together with the Ruby on Rails platform to build dynamic, interactive web applications. First, a series of tutorials teaches the fundamentals. Subsequent chapters discuss issues such as cross-platform development, debugging, RJS, and scalability. The volume concludes with complete references to Prototype 1.5 and script.aculo.us 1.6.1. It is assumed that readers are familiar with the technologies used in dynamic websites on both the client and server sides. Developer Raymond was a presenter at RailsConf 2006.
