Category: Rails, Showcase

Richard White has created another Rails Ajax Scaffolding solution with the ActiveScaffold plugin:

ActiveScaffold provides you with a wealth of dynamically created goodness:

  • An AJAXified table interface for creating, updating, and deleting objects
  • Automatic handling of ActiveRecord associations
  • Sorting, Search and Pagination
  • Graceful JavaScript degradation
  • RESTful API support (XML/YAML/JSON) baked in
  • Sexy CSS styling and theming support
  • More extension points than you can shake a stick at
  • Guaranteed to work on Firefox 1+, IE 6+ and Safari 2+
  • Released under the MIT License, the same one as Rails itself, so you can use it freely in your commercial applications.

Check out the set of demos to see it at work:

500 – Internal Server Error
I didn’t realize that ajaxian relayed that traffic.

The demo is back up now, after being Ajaxian’ed :)

We threatened the server and questioned its lineage. I think we’ve humiliated it into cooperation again.

Very slick. Back button behavior in FF2 is to show previous sortings, though… seems counterintuitive.
