Foodlets on Rails

Comments (2) | Wednesday, March 23, 2011

The Foodlets engineering team (Govind and I) have been open source enthusiasts since the time we learnt about it. The philosophy of co-creation and sharing has fascinated us and it’s our dream to give back knowledge and working code to the community someday.

We built the Foodlets software entirely using Open Source tools. Ruby on Rails (RoR) has been the most impressive of them all. It keeps surprising us in pleasant ways every now and then, we have fallen in love with the framework. The least we can do for RoR and its community is to share our knowledge and help new users adopt RoR.

This month’s Linux For You (the leading open source magazine in India) published our article titled ‘Rails Plugins’. In this article Govind and I discussed the plugins (Authlogic, Omniauth, Paparclip, Will Paginate and jRails) which made our life easy while building Foodlets.

We have been going around evangelizing for RoR - on 12th Feb we held a workshop at Goa University during their annual techfest Innofest. At the workshop we addressed undergraduate students from about 6 colleges in Goa. We introduced them to the Rails fundamentals and showed them how to build a simple Event Management application using RoR plugins. The working code for the app and a cheetsheet has been shared.

Foodlets itself is based on co-created content and we shall continue our support to co-creation, freedom and knowledge sharing.
