i really like some aspects of RoR and i will be learning and applying it over the next few months.
having said that, i'm a little scared because i'm comfortable using a php forms class to generate linked select boxes (select box 2 changes as select box 1 is updated).
i'm under the impression this is doable in rails, but it isn't trivial - meaning i'll be burning a lot of time getting something usable. burning time doesn't seem like apleasant experience at this juncture - especially when i have it down pat on PHP.
can i mix these technologies on a limited basis or am i just out of luck?
can php be used in conjunction with rails?
