Screencast #Web8: jMaki on Rails for Dummies - 2nd edition

The support for Rails in NetBeans IDE has improved considerably in the past few days. Greg and Ludo have been working on ramping up the jMaki NetBeans module as well. This screencast is an update to #web2 and shows how the development experience for creating a jMaki-enabled Rails application is drastically simplified.

The screencast shows how a jMaki-wrapped Yahoo and Dojo DataTable widget can be used to pull data from MySQL database using ActiveRecord in a Rails application. The screencast also shows how multiple widgets on a RHTML View can talk to each other using simple tags.

Enjoy it here!

Hello Arun, I followed your screencast and was impressed, but I thought it was also possible to use the ExtJS library. How can I configure Netbeans for that?

Harm, ExtJS library needs to be packaged as it's done for Charting widgets at:

Then this zip file can be easily added to NetBeans IDE as explained:

Not right now, but that surely would be a good addition :)

Wonderful Information. Thanks Arun.

I had a question on Fisheye thoug hoping someone would be able to answer. I am trying to change the link that gets invoked when you click on any of the images. so far I have not been to do that. It pops an alert box with "glue.js fisheye event"

Posted by Farshad on May 14, 2008 at 01:01 AM PDT #

I tried to recreate your steps. I installed a newer version of jMaki (1.7.3), I am using Netbeans 6.1, Java 1.6.0, jRuby 1.8.6 (hmm, I was execting 1.1), gems 1.0.1, rails 2.0.2. When I try to access the Rake tasks, I right click on the project icon in the Projects navigation tab, and nothing happens. No menus appear. :-( Did I do some newbie mistake that is preventing me from seeing the rake tasks? Is there some other way to access the rake tasks from within the IDE?

Posted by robertfolkerts on May 26, 2008 at 04:10 AM PDT #

robertfolkerts, I'm using similar configuration as yours and the only difference is JDK 1.5.0 and JRuby 1.1 (default bundled with NetBeans). And could re-create the entire demo with that configuration.

When you right-click on the project, do you see the context-sensitive menu ? You should consider asking your question on users@ruby.netbeans.org.

thank you

Hi Arun,
Do you have a tutorial for how do I deploy this jMaki application to Google App Engine?

Thank you

Suresh

Posted by Suresh on April 16, 2010 at 01:01 AM PDT #

Suresh,

jMaki is a community-drive project at this stage and so no new docs are available. Feel free to blog about it once you've figured out the steps.

Posted by Arun Gupta on April 19, 2010 at 08:08 AM PDT #

I find this url helpful to get started. Iam working on this path now.
Thank you
Suresh

Posted by Suresh on April 20, 2010 at 12:11 AM PDT #

I find this url helpful to get started with Ruby/GoogleApps, though jMaki blending to the equation is not known yet but I am following towards this path.
