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:
Teaserprovides the web page one sees when running the the_next_big_thing server. It depends on all the other engines.
Annoyancecontains a service that given a number will give an indication of how annoying that number is.
EmailSignupprovides a service allowing the storage of email addresses.
EventCounterprovides 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
appdirectory. It is soley responsible for encapsulating and mounting the engine in the right place.
