Just wanted to share, Refactoring to REST

Wow, take a look at what Scott Raymond did with IconBuffet.com. Massive simplification of his Rails application by following DHH's new REST/HTTP model.

I started developing my designer service application before Rails went 1.0. I wasn't sure how to structure everything when I first got started. I started to realize that having 1 controller for every signficant model makes things easier. And now having seen this new standarized way of building a Rails app I just want to re-write everything! (I won't, at least not before launch. ;)
)

In all seriousness, this new convention for Rails development seems like it has the possibity to greatly simplify application development. Developers that are just now discovering Rails will greatly benefit from the convention.

Awesome stuff.
