Creating a project from scratch? Install

sudo gem install monk --pre monk add monkex https://github.com/sinefunc/monk-experimental.git
Then create an app:
monk init my_great_app -s monkex

Uses AgentSniff to do browser detection. The HTML class is automatically set.
A couple of new helpers have been added.
