Re: [PhillyOnRails] Gripes about Rails

Those are pretty valid gripes.  The beauty of Rails, though, is that you have to make a couple assumptions about your webapp works.  There's no working around that.  The benefits you get are tremendous, though.  I have to give my M:N relations silly names like users_watches, but in reality, that's not a bad convention, and the gains you get from doing so are enormous.

As for setting up Lighttpd w/ rails, I followed the tutorial at the first time around, and it worked like a charm.

Just don't forget to change ENV['RAILS_ENV'] in your /config/environment.rb file, as fcgi won't know explecity which environment to start up.

wondering whether I should just stick with Apache or mod_ruby or
