There's a lot of professional web-app dev going on that does make the assumption that scripts will be enabled.  Just sayin'.  It's not really an optional thing atm for the web as a whole any more than a text-only browser would really be viable going forward.  That's a little more extreme but both break many sites just the same now.

I wget static information one piece at a time and scour its source code for possible malicious intent. Hopefully your website doesn't serve up any dynamic content, I ignore it all together. Too dangerous these days.

PS: Runter - What are you working on for Pikkle? I tried to check the website out but I was having a hard time finding information. ( Maybe I should enable scripts? )

Social webapp games for cell phones using Rails.  Pretty big market for such things there.

And yeah, we even assume the cell phones have js enabled. ;)

Oh neat! Do they have a rich api in place, or do you pretty much just create each new webapp from scratch?

EDIT: I was looking at Kongregate as a platform for rails apps (games of course) but the latest rails game released kind of scared me of. Wonderful game, not doing so well.

Well, Pikkle uses some proprietary stuff they invented for richer graphics on flashlite called Rash.  It's pretty rich 3d rendering via flash for being on a cell phone.  We have some rails libraries we take from game to game for item definitions, etc.      Basically we scaffold the entire game out then start filling flows in with flash until it's where the design docs say.  But all 3 of the major cell phones carriers in japan are mandated to support flash.  Which is kinda why we do things this way.  The docomo phones are a little flaky since they won't store cookies, but we get around it.

As a side note, Kongregate's sort of known for ####ing around with developers and dipping into their tips. Not that you can expect much else from a website ran by Gamestop.

Runter, it is Fantasy University. It feels like a facebook game, but it is a rails app hosted by Heroku. The game is absolutely HILARIOUS. It cracks me up =)

I'll check it out.  And yeah,  I've been wanting to toy around more with Heroku.  Heroku works with anything build on rack.  I might see if a little sinatra app can get hosted there easily.

I love how light weight Sinatra is but putting together routes seems a little clunky to me. Could just be because I'm not much of a web developer though =)

That's because it's just for super small apps.  It doesn't really support the controller/action scheme you'd want for a large web app.    It's surprising, though, how often small apps are what I'm working on.
