Common Core JS

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve written a rapid application development tool for Rails: It’s called “Common Core JS.”

It’s based on the idea that you will embrace a common naming convention, will use AJAX rendered-everything (that means all the forms are remote: true), and want a common set of things for rolling out a quick, dashboard-like app in Rails. It comes with poor-man’s authentication built-in. Poor man’s auth is safe and works fine, but it isn’t granular and it isn’t designed for you to grow you entire app on.

Common Core is a fantastic tool for rapidly building prototypes. It can also be used to create API back-ends for Javascript-heavy apps.

It is a blunt instrument and you should weild it carefully.
