Hi Philippe We could do with the markup for the api from http:// camping.rubyforge.org/api.html adding to the whywentcamping.com repo, then it'll be ready for tweaking/editing/styling - I've added a comment to the open issue about this that also mentions the FF3 JQuery problem. Dave

Still busy, so just a brief comment... Philippe: I think this is a lot of fun - the slideshow is the kind of minimal introduction that really works. Better as inspiration than as a working website, so perhaps a combination of these graphics with the 'classic plain green' style at

Dave, I just changed the background color to match the original site. Looks nicer now. I just looked into the Firefox issue on the reference page and I think that the 2 functions s and m need to be moved towards the top of the file so they can be declared before they are used. Once I

Just for fun and to keep creative juives flowing I mocked up one idea of layout including a resizable look and a slideshow to showcase key points about Camping. That slideshow is using straight HTML and Javascript. See http://rubycamping.monnet-usa.com/ On 6/30/2010 8:21 AM, Philippe Monnet

Hey campers! I think it's about time to release Camping 2.1, which features: * Support for other template engines (Haml, ERB, etc) out of the box * No longer depends on ActiveRecord (this was a bug) * Camping.options is now a Hash where you can put all sorts of configuration stuff *

Thanks Magnus! I love the idea of working on the web site for 2.1. I am still not crazy about the web site name though - as it is not easy for people to remember if they don't know the connection with _why. I personally would have preferred rubycamping.com or something linking Camping to Ruby

From an SEO standpoint rubycamping is probably the better choice over whywentcamping. Although changing the header to Camping, a Ruby Microframwork would probably be enough anyway. Dave On Wed, Jun 30, 2010 at 8:57 AM, Philippe Monnet r...@monnet-usa.com wrote: Thanks Magnus! I love the idea of

Sorry I actually meant to say that all key content and navigation should be visible in the top 1084 pixels (and maybe less). It's not so much that we can make the page longer but you loose visitor's attention span (see http://browsersize.googlelabs.com/). On 6/30/2010 7:46 AM, Magnus Holm
