Can someone tell me the title and or URL of a good book on Ruby on Rails development at the post scaffolding point in the development cycle?  In other words, I have gotten through the basics of RoR programming so I am ready for what comes after generating scaffolding.  Thanks.

    Agile Web Development with Rails is also a good book to consider:

    It covers the basics, but also gets into many advanced topics.  It does everything in the context of a working sample application, which I found to be very helpful for envisioning how things would work in my own app.

    Well since you encouraged me to come back if I had any more questions.  Are you aware of any good RoR programs up on the web that are code generated as scaffolding that has been further developed and customized as fairly sophisticated application?  I am not really experienced in RoR to have seen this.
