Ruby Plus #92: Extremely Simple Photo Album in Rails

I had looked at Gullery, WebAlbum and Photo Album in Ajax on Rails books among others.

I will show you how to create a photo album with slide show in a RESTful way. I will include the source code as part of the download.

Exercise

You can extend this album so that the photo upload does not tie up the Mongrel process by using Background DRB, Merb etc.

Add the feature where users can only add/edit photos to their album.

Resources
