I my ongoing quest to learn more Rails, I tried to do some (more or less) fancy AJAX stuff. And even though Rails afficinados claim “seamless” support, AJAX is a pile of hacks. Rails at least makes it a bit less painful.
In any case, there are some resources that can help you to get along:
- Handy RJS tips, that show you how to use the syntax
- If you get to play with Rails more, you may want to test your helpers.
- There’s are also some things about the in-place-editor (Article 1) (Article 2).
- How to include a custom CSS for each controller and/or action.
Basically, the in-place-editing gets a bit more involved once you want to edit more than one object on the page…
