Visual Ruby on Rails

February 24, 2007

Your Rails application structure structure slowing you down?
If so you may want to rake a few diagrams of your application. This can easily be done with the RAV rails plugin, and the venerable Graphviz (Graph Visualization Software).

Download and install Graphviz from here and make sure it is in the PATH.

Create your rails application

rails myappcd myapp/vendor/plugins svn co svn://rubyforge.org/var/svn/rav/stable ravcd ../..

Now you’re ready to create the diagrams by

rake visualize

have fun!
