SUSE Studio builds:
The Devise gem is gaining a lot of popularity in our community, mostly due to its incredibly modular nature. And, recently, Martin Schürrer took advantage of that by releasing devise-twitter. devise-twitter is a gem which uses Twitter's new OAuth interface to provide your application with single sign on or secondary authentication via Twitter.
If you're a consultant, or someone who needs to log your hours while developing, you may be interested in Timetap. Timetap is a Ruby library by Elia Schito which monitors file changes in your TextMate project and records your time. It's kind of like an automatic time tracker (whereas the Harvest or Freshbooks widgets would be manual).
Purify just released hey_sorty, which is a new Rails plugin aimed at easing adding ActiveRecord sorting to your application. If you've got a table of data that needs sortable headers, hey_sorty gives you ActiveRecord helpers, view helpers, and a scope to manage the entire process for you.
Matthew Nielson just released validate_block. This library cleans up your ActiveRecord validations by allowing you to wrap those validations that depend on conditionals into one block. So, instead of having a lot of if or unless lines in all of your model validations, one block does the job.
If you feel like Capistrano is bloated, or don't enjoy using Rake or git-hooks for deployment, you may be interested in gitploy by Brent Dillingham. You define a simle deployment strategy via a custom DSL and that's it.
If you're interested in using Web Sockets, you should check out the socky_plugin by Bernard Potocki. It manages a lot of the interactions for you and even comes with a nice demo application.
Gregg Pollack recently posted his talk entitled, "Swearing and Consulting," over on the Envy Labs blog. If you were curious about how we run Envy Labs and would like a bit more insight into our views on consulting, you should take a look.
ChangeLog just posted an interview with Zed Shaw this week talking about Mongrel 2. It's definitely worth a listen if you deploy Ruby (or almost any other language) applications onto the Web. There are a lot of changes and it's most likely something you're going to use in the near future.
