|Crafting Rails 4 Applications||redirect to download page|
Rails is one of the most extensible frameworks out there. This pioneering book deep-dives into the plugin APIs and shows you, the intermediate Rails developer, how to use them to write better web applications and make your day-to-day work with Rails more productive. Rails Core developer Jose Valim guides you through eight different tutorials, each using test-driven development to build a new Rails plugin or application that solves common problems with these APIs. You'll learn how the Rails rendering stack works and customize it to read templates from the while you discover how to mimic Active Record behavior, such as validations, in any other object.
