I got tired of Nike’s flash-based UI and I wanted to learn Ruby on Rails, so I’ve started work on a little RoR web app that allows people to create accounts, upload Nike+ XML files, and view their runs. To view an example, just log in as geoff with the password geoff. This thing is definitely a work in progress, but if you want to screw around with the code you can download it here. The easiest way to deploy and test everything would probably be to just generate a generic Rails app and then copy the app directory over. If you want to try uploading runs but you don’t have an iPod sport kit, use the XML files here for testing.

When commenting, remember: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?

Go dark.
