Haml(ize) those RSpec Scaffolds!

Published: March 11th, 2008

If you’ve ever wanted to haml(ize) those RSpec Scaffolds without having to rename each of the generates files one by one, you now have a drop-in replacement: RSpec Haml Scaffolds.

You can grab the details over at the CitrusByte Blog Post Here1

If you already know how to install a git repo into a rails directory, then you can grab it over here2:


You should be pleased to know that I set it up using Git. You guys convinced me to give it a try by sending me a random invite to Github last week. So thanks to who ever sent that invitation over.

As stated in the official post, it’s very possible that there are quirks in the release. I’d love to experience someone forking the repo and submitting a patch though. I just want to feel that overwhelming geeky feeling of contribution. You know what I’m talking about, don’t worry, you shouldn’t feel guilty. You can embrace it by actually committing.

p.s I have three github invites now, if anyone needs membership, let me know and I’ll send it over.

So… How do I install a git repo into a rails directory? giston?

Yes, you can use Giston, or you can simply “clone” the directory in to the plugins folder.

The post on CitrusByte has info on how to do it. It’s pretty much the same idea if you did it with SVN.

git clone repo_path

That’s it :)

You don't have to worry about your e-mail address being sold to a russian-spam-mafia. I'm only going to use it for my own weird needs; like asking you out for a date on a lonely night of coding.
