(Tower) on Rails Tutorial: third application

This is the sample application for Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Learn Rails by Example by Michael Hartl.

However, instead of using Ruby on Rails, I am following along but using Coffeescript, Node, and particularly, the Tower.js framework, which was modeled quite closely on rails. It is my plan to not only learn Tower by doing so, but also to document the differences for those following in my footsteps. So far:

See https://github.com/edubkendo/firstApp for how I worked through the first chapter of the book, which includes information on getting a Tower.js app running on Heroku.

For chapter two, including examples of relationships (hasMany/belongsTo), validations and flash messages, check out https://github.com/edubkendo/demoApp .

Setup

tower new sampleApp

cd sampleApp/

npm install .

git init

git add .

git commit -m "Initial commit"

git remote add origin git@github.com:username/sampleApp.git

git push -u origin master

So far only minor changes, all of which have been discussed in the previous app.
