Collaboration in Ruby on Rails using Faye, Devise, and Sync

Hi Everyone!

I am building a rails app that allows the user to collaborate with other users on things like to do lists, and chat messages.

When a user starts a todo list (the owner), I want them to be able to search all registered users in the application and invite them to collaborate on this todo list.

The same goes for the collaboration chat, similar to this one, made in the rails casts episode: http://railscasts.com/episodes/260-messaging-with-faye?view=asciicast

Can anyone point me to any articles/screencasts/videos or give me any insightful tips on how to invite users to be part of a project, similar to the feature in basecamp?

I am using devise for sign In/sign up.

Hi Joseph Hall I don't think there's any tutorials that I know of for inviting users to projects, sorry about that! You'll have to assemble everything from other resources :( Try following along with RailsTutorial and RailsCasts as well as our Building Social Features segments. A lot of those concepts can be mimicked similar to how we did the friendships features in the Treebook app.
