I'm liking Ruby and I like what you can do with Rails. Can't wait for more documentation to come out.

One weird thing I noticed though was when using:
ruby script\generate scaffold Recipe

It made it plural, as in it created the controller/model classes using the plural form Recipes. Doesn't that go against the naming convention?

    I noticed the same thing. IS there any doc on the scaffold generator? I never got it to work properly.

      Got the scaffold generator working thanks to
      this (

      First, I started from a fresh rails app. The scaffold generator gets confused if you've already generated controllers.

      To avoid purals, specify the name of the controller :

      ruby script/generate scaffold Recipe recipe

      Lastly, use the -f option to force overwriting duplicated pages in additional runs:

      ruby script/generate scaffold Category category -f

        Code generated by scaffold can be destroyed by generate's sibling "destroy" such as:

        ruby script/destroy scaffold Category category
