SaaS RailsKit: I've hit my first WTF, and I don't think it will be my last.

(an hour in)

WTF #1: the way the database is boot-strapped.
WTF #2: "accounts.full_domain" -- ?! Yay for adding, requiring, and building code around things that not every SaaS app is going to need!
WTF #3: rdoc, motherfuckers. Get some.


Ugh. This thing was clearly modelled around 37signal-style SaaS. I can probably use most of it and just use dummy values to satisfy the bits that won't be used, but still.

Feel free to drop a note on the private Google group if you'd like to discuss the SaaS Kit with other users... some of whom are also not using subdomains in their projects.

You can also send me an email directly if you have any questions/concerns about the Kit.

Thanks for trying it, and sorry it's not all rainbows and lollipops! :)

Well, if nothing else, you're responsive!
