The Next Big Thing Build Status Dependency Status Code Climate

What is this?

A full-fledged portal to announce the next big thing! Jumpstart the PR campaign for your next big thing by standing on the shoulder of a giant: The next big Thing!!

What is this really?

A sample project showcasing the use of unbuilt Rails Engines and Gems. The entire app has been developed using TDD - follow the commits to see the parts evolve. Current state:

  • Teaser provides the web page one sees when running the the_next_big_thing server. It depends on all the other engines.
  • Annoyance contains a service that given a number will give an indication of how annoying that number is.
  • EmailSignup provides a service allowing the storage of email addresses.
  • EventCounter provides a service that can count for any object how many times a particular action has happened.
  • The main Rails application does not contain any application code: it does not even have an app directory. It is soley responsible for encapsulating and mounting the engine in the right place.
