#7 Create "address book" tutorial


Create a second "address book" tutorial with a more complex model, and more complex templates, which uses and explains widgets, Catwalk/Sprox for setup, etc.

Kind of working on similar thing: I'll let you know when done. http://lucasmanual.com/mywiki/TurboGears2

I have made some progress on this tutorial. http://lucasmanual.com/mywiki/TurboGears2

I should be done in a week. Please go over it and let me know if you want to add anything, or if I should cover something else as well.

seems good +1 on adding it as an example project.

Jorge Vargas, since I read somewhere that you did write a lot of unit tests for some apps, could you help me finish the unit test for this addressbook? I did the "check if url returns" but I just need to test for widget, and database and I am not sure how I can do that fast.

If I could get some copy paste code I could use that would be great. Thanks, Lucas

Attaching what I have done so far.

I think this tutorial should live where it is, but that we should link to it in our documentation. This way the TG crew does not bear the burden of maintenance, and the author can still be acknowledged in our docs. Also, the dbmechanic code should be converted over to catwalk/sprox before these docs are accepted.
