Markdown(ish) version of the Rails Tutorial Book

Cool! So...why?

grep, my friend. The HTML of the Rails Tutorial Book is made available, but if you wish to grep a portion of the code from the sample_app repo to learn what it does, you'll be treated with HTML in your terminal!

So I just ran html2text on all the html files, did a few minutes worth of decluttering, and this is the result.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
