Too Doo

Ruby on Rails
General Info

Mackenzie Child an important contributing member to the Ruby on Rails community. One of his many projects was creating a 12 week challenge called the "12-in-12 Challenge". His goal behind this was to create 12 different Ruby On Rails applications to fine-tune and improve his skills in the framework. For each application he created a tutorial video and how create it and post the code on to his GitHub account. In each application he used at least two new gems or methods in achieving a particular function within the application.

Project Details

I called this application "Too Doo" to have my own little creative twist to the name. This application came from Week 6 in the Child's 12-in-12 challenge. The goal behind it was that the user creates a list with a series of tasks and then have the ability to mark each task as incomplete or complete. The application also comes with the standard simple create, read, update and destroy functions.


In this project I learned a little more about the CSS aspect and the file extension HTML Abstraction Markup Language, HAML. The new aspect that I learned was setting up the features of having a task be marked complete by setting it up through the controllers and using glyphicons for the view of it.
