Welcome to our official Rails feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you! (check the other available forums)

In the Rails 3 timeframe, I would like Rails to...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

        We are planing on making each app mountable in Rails 3.0 What that means is that slices/engines can be upgraded to normal standalone apps and just be mounted in the router.

      • At least an option to use the Merb router

        The Merb router is simple and powerful, also the use of one method for URL generation instead of dynamically generated methods for everything is awesome. url(:name, args) <- Beautiful.

        • have an open source book available in multiple languages

          It would be great to have a copyleft Rails 3.0 book explaining the various concepts of the framework. Instead of waiting that the book is finished to start the translation work, it could be done in parallel by the community.

          • be able to have nested layouts

            Today we can have a general application layout or a by controller layout, that will wrap around our views.
            But, what if I wanted to apply the application layout (which defines the doctype, header and footer) and use a user layout with side bars and then use my view (which has actual dynamic content). There's no easy way around this, unless we use some helper method with capturing.
