Mountable engines was totally new to me before I watched this screencast. Therefor I have a couple of questions..

Would a use case example be to create a authentication and profile engine, then a blog engine, a forum engine etc and combine them all together under a "umbrella" app?

Is the mentioned use case a good way to create better scalable apps?

I guess you can create a engine within a engine as well?


I get the following error after I've set up the rails pre RVM, installed rails --pre and then try to run rails / rails -v:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems.rb:925:in `report_activate_error': Could not find RubyGem rails (>= 0) (Gem::LoadError)
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems.rb:243:in `activate_dep'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems.rb:235:in `activate'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems.rb:1306:in `gem'
        from /usr/local/bin/rails:18:in `<main>'

If I do ruby -v it outputs ruby 1.9.2p180, but there looks like there is a linking error or something, any ideas?
