-== Welcome to SproutCore Sample Applications
-This is a samples application package for building a SproutCore applications.
-To get started, edit your JavaScript application in the clients directory
-(we've already created one for you.)
-If you just cloned this samples directory using Git, you need to run the
-following two commands to get the latest version of SproutCore JavaScript:
-git submodule init
-git submodule update
-== Getting Started
-To try the samples, start the SproutCore Dev Server by running from this
-This takes all the same arguments as mongrel. You can now test any of the
-following sample apps:
-You can also view the SproutCore docs or run the unit tests:
-http://localhost:4020/sproutcore/-docs (click Rebuild Docs)
-== What Goes Where
-Here is a brief description of the various parts of the SproutCore app:
-* *clients:* Each folder in the clients directory contains a single-page
- application you can load in your web browser. By default the URL to reach
- each application is the /directory-name. You will do most of your editing
- here.
-* *frameworks:* Each folder in the frameworks directory is a SproutCore
- library that your client applications can use. No HTML will be generated
- for these frameworks, but any JavaScript, CSS or other images you place
- in here will be accessible through your web browser.
-* *public:* This directory contains any other static resources your other
- apps needs to be able to use. If you have static HTML or other basic
- files you want to have access to. If you start your server in production
- mode, cached output will also be saved into this directory.
-* *lib:* Any ruby files you place in this directory will be automatically
- loaded when the sproutcore server start or when you do a static build.
- If you write any custom view helpers, you can place them here.
-* *setup.yaml:* This is a config file that you can use to set various load
- options for the clients and frameworks in your app. The default options are
- specified in the default: group. You can override the default for specific
- frameworks or clients by naming them.
-== Using Frameworks
-Frameworks are automatically available in your app. You can
-also name frameworks available anywhere in your load path (including those
-installed in gems).
-The SproutCore gem comes with the latest versions of prototype, sproutcore,
-and sproutapp frameworks installed. All you need to do is indicate that
-you require them.
-== Deploying your SproutCore App
-Normally you will use the sc-server to host your application while you are
-developing your code. Once you are ready to deploy, however, there are two
-ways you can do it:
-==== 1. Use sc-server in production.
-The SproutCore server can be run in a production mode that will simply generate
-and cache web-optimized versions of all of your resources upon request. For a
-low-traffic or newer site, this approach is an easy way to get your code into
-production. You just replace your directory with your latest files and the
-sc-server will start serving the new resources.
-==== 2. Do a static build
-In general, however, loading all of your resources through a Ruby-app is not the
-best, especially when you could use a high-speed server such as lighttpd that
-is optimized for serving static content.
-If you want real speed, do a static build of your content and serve it through
-lighttpd or apache. Do the static build, just run:
-This will place a directory in tmp/build that contains all of your resources
-pre-compiled and ready for static serving.
