Things You Shouldn’t Be Doing With Rails

By Peter Cooper / August 30, 2006

Kevin Clark presents "Things You Shouldn't Be Doing in Rails". It's not a list of things Rails isn't any good for, rather it's features or concepts related to Rails that you shouldn't be using. It covers deprecated finders, the in-built pagination classes, scaffolding, engines, layouts, and namespaced controllers.

    I've written a simple plugin that searches for these deprecated techniques in your app.

    I was going to be posting about that later today (in fact, I still will ;-)) Thanks!
