How to get API help for Rails

There are couple of ways that I use and recommend

1. Install Devboi plug-in for FireFox and add support for Rails.

2. Use gem_server. Run gem_server command. Then launch http://localhost:8808 (or whateever port the server uses) and you can access all rdoc or www documentation for installed gems and plugins from the web page. I found this to be pretty useful as I do not have to search the web very often.

407 Authentication error

Was getting this 407 authentication error every time I tried to install a plugin to my RadRails project.

Finaly found a solution. Installed Ruby Win32 SSPI and used ruby -rspa script/plugin install .

Curently exploring RadRails 0.7. Lots of goodies (like mongrel web server, editor enhancements etc) added since last version.
