The difference between Avo and Rails starter kits

I often get the question, "How is Avo different from other starter kits?". And the simple answer is that it provides a different function. Avo helps the developer build their application's business side using configuration rather than regular logic code. When I say business-side, I mean the actual part that provides the unique value to their customers.

Use multiple resources for the same model

Usually, an Avo Resource maps to one Rails model. So there will be a one-to-one relationship between them. But there will be scenarios where you'd like to create another resource for the same model.
