<h1>Rails Examples and Tutorials</h1>
<p>This is a website and <a href="https://github.com/RailsApps">GitHub repository</a> for open source Ruby on Rails example apps and Rails tutorials.</p>
<p>It spans the gap between Ruby on Rails tutorials for beginners and the piecemeal advice found on experts’ blogs.</p>
<p>Here’s what you can do:</p>
<ul>
<li>follow the Rails tutorials and examine the code to to see examples of complete working Rails 3.2 web applications</li>
<li>download code (“clone a repository”) to customize an app for your own use</li>
<li>use an application template to generate a ready-made starter app</li>
<li>modify an application template to make your own custom starter app</li>
</ul><p>New to Rails? See a list of <a href="http://railsapps.github.com/rails.html">recommended resources for Rails</a>.</p>

</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“I would like to say thank you for such a precise guide. It helped me understand how things work a great deal quicker than all of the bits and pieces I was reading around the web.” — Justin Booth</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“<a href="http://twitter.com/rails_apps">@danielkehoe</a> is somewhat of a hero with the stuff he puts on @github” — Warwick Poole, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/warwickp/status/86987405327994880">Twitter, 2 July 2011</a></p>
