Rails 3 Generator Support Jump to Story

If, for some reason, you're not a fan of ActiveRecord, Prototype, or really any other piece of Rails, then you may have gotten annoyed by the old Rails script/generate. New in Rails 3 is the ability to define (or have defined for you by gem developers!) the exact stack that you want to work with. Prefer shoulda or rspec? You got it! Cucumber? MongoDB? Alright by us! Now rails generate will build exactly what you're looking for, without making a fuss.
