Introducing sproutcore-rails

At Kisko Labs we’re good at picking great tools. We’ve been using Rails ever since we started in 2007 and haven’t looked back. We hope to keep on using it for many years to come.

However, we need more than just Rails. We need a powerful tool for frontend development that fits our projects. That is why we are extremely happy with the announcement of SproutCore 2.0. There is no way we could have used SproutCore 1.x on all our applications, but as of version 2 that is no longer true.

Within a few hours of the announcement and release of the first alpha version, we created the sproutcore-rails gem. At the moment it only contains the latest SproutCore 2.0 developer preview for use with Rails 3.1 and its awesome asset pipeline. We will keep an eye on SproutCore development and update the gem as needed. We also hope to include Rails helpers to help with Rails/SproutCore applications if needed. We’re very much open to contributions from both communities.

Today is a good day to be a web developer.
