Rails 3.1 Template
This is a template for new Rails projects. It incorporates files from these projects to provide a solid basis for a new site.
- Rails (this was tested with version 3.1.0.rc5);
- HTML5 Boilerplate;
- 960.gs; and
- a few gems (see below).

rails31-slab.rb file as a
$ rails new PROJECT -m https://github.com/scholarslab/rails31-template/raw/master/rails31-slab.rb
