Grails.org has long had a Screencasts section, infrequently used and a bit dusty, but listing a number of screencasts. In the last few weeks, the listing has been filled by a number of new video tutorials by one Mike Kelly. He has put together a site that hosts an entire series of these videos; it is called “Foundations In Grails.” See it at grailsexample.net.
Shaun Jurgemeyer has posted a series on using vim as a “Grails IDE” (Part 1, Part 2). There are links to fine vim additions, but most interestingly (to your humble News Editor), there are also a number of custom scripts (as well as VimDiff config settings) that he has put together for use with Grails.
Shawn Hartsock has relaunched his Grails QR Code plugin, which “provides intuitive ways to embed QRCodes directly onto any page in your Grails application.”
