A new branch of Merb (sometimes referred to as merb-next) which aims to provide
a stable, stripped down API for the Merb 1.0 release.
This branch was based off the 0.5 release series with *significant* rewrites.
Goals of this release:
* Stabilize the @public interface methods to provide for a more consistent application development experience.
* Remove features until nothing except a central application API is left
* Improve comments on methods using a standard documentation methodology as described in DOCUMENTATION_STANDARDS
* Separate the tests into two sections... "private" and "public"
* Public methods are methods tagged with @public that will be part of the standard, stable Merb API
* Private methods are implementation methods that might
* Implement a new render API
* Build more extensions to regain selected features when needed
To familiarize yourself with how a merb-core application might look,
use merb-gen (from merb-more) to generate a few apps:
$ merb-gen app myapp # merb stack app, assuming you are using DM and RSpec
The only option you can use with stack is --template_engine=(erb|haml).
Default is erb.
$ merb-gen core myapp # a "regular" app without any predefined dependencies
Options available:
Default is no ORM.
Default is rspec.
Default is erb.
$ merb-gen flat myapp # a flattened app: one file and directory for views
Options are same as for "regular" app.
$ merb-gen very_flat myapp # a single-file app
Options are same as for "regular" app.
