I've been having trouble finding reference materials on certain
aspects of Rails. Not even the RubyOnRails.com seems to have any of
1. Rails directory structure
What is the intended purpose for each of the directories in the
standard Rails directory structure? What are some additional
semi-standard directories that people create for custom needs?
2. Rails command reference
What are all the magical things that can be done with the stuff in
the script directory? What about the Rails command itself?
How do I write my own Rake tasks?
5. Plugins, plugins, plugins.
Is there a comprehensive (or at least comprehensible) one-stop list
of all the best plugins floating around in the plugin-o-shere? Are
there user reviews on them?
Bonus: Is it possible to un-plugin a plugin without leaving litter
behind? Or do I have to resort to a source code rollback?
If you have a favorite book, website or back alley for this sort of
information I'd like to hear about it, even if it's well-known. I'm a
bit isolated out here, so I don't always know about the stuff all you
young whippersnappers are up on.
