Juggernaut News

March 4th, 2007

Expect some development on Juggernaut in the coming few weeks as I’m giving three new guys svn commit access.

Some of the developments include

  • Using swf object to make adding flash to the page cleaner and work in more browsers.
  • Updating the flash to version 9, and using external interface (therefore getting past the vbscript hack).
  • Loads of bug fixes
  • Render with juggernaut:
    render_with_juggernaut :juggernaut => session[:juggernaut_channels] || true, :update => true do |page|
    page.replace_html ‘window_movie_body’, :partial => “recommendation”

I also really need to update the juggernaut.rubyforge site.

Lots of people seem to be having issues with JSON. Make sure you use version 0.4.2, rather than 0.4.3 since the new one doesn’t work with Juggernaut.

Also if you’re getting parsing errors, check this out.

May I remind people that there is a google groups list for asking questions - so everyone can beneift from the answers ;).

    No, not sure. But I do know that it had a much quicker penetration length than previous versions, and is available for all platforms (including linux).

    Hey - I just wanted to let everyone know. There’s a problem in JSON 0.4.2 that is explained over here:


    It took me about half an hour to get Juggernaut running because of a stupid colon error in the gem itself… :-) People having weird errors when starting the push_server should check it out, as it blindly fails on the json require.
