I'm new to ruby and am trying to write a simple web gallery and am searching for a small, simple example of a web-based gallery script to learn from.

I've googled for one, but found only rails-based ones, and am looking for a non-rails example. Any recommendations ?

thanks,
alan

There are not too many widely used web frameworks outside of rails in Ruby. There is camping which is a microframework. is there a reason why you dont want to use one based on rails?

FWIW, my book has an example of using Ruby and RMagick to generate static HTML pages; should be feasible to port it over.

There are non-Rails approaches to frameworks, of course - camping is a good example, and so is Og+Nitro. I'd like to see more lightweight Ruby frameworks - not that they will replace Rails, but I'd like to see more single-file, drop-into-your-public-html-directory-and-it-runs solutions. (Of course, that's something you can do with PHP out of the box on most distributions.)

Take it easy,

Dave
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
