Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Ch1-5 Summary

with 3 comments

The Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Learn Rails by Example book by Michael Hartl teaches Rails web application development by working through development of a sample microblog application. While going through the tutorial myself, I found it easy to get lost in the details of the sample application, rather than distilling and retaining key ideas needed to work on Markus. This post is a summary of those points extracted from the book, in order to act as a companion to the book.

Text beside each chapter number are key ideas from chapter, not the chapter’s actual title (which I find don’t tell much about what is taught in each chapter)

Chapter 1 Setup: Ruby, Ruby Gems, how to start rails server.
Chapter 2 Use Rails commands to quickly generate demo app. Also introduces MVC & Rail’s ApplicationController and ActiveRecord classes.
Chapter 3 HTTP Requests, HTTP Response codes, Layouts, Rspec
Chapter 4 Ruby Language Fundamentals
Chapter 5 Partials, Layout links, Rails Routes
