Matthew Conway released a new gem called Rubber. Rubber makes deployments to the cloud (currently EC2) simple. It manages configurations, supports HAPROXY, and is even pre-configured to be able to scale your application automatically. There's a lot of good stuff in here and it's worth a look.
Martin Aumont released a gem recently, called watchr. watchr is, at its heart, a file system monitoring application that focuses on a specific directory and then runs whatever executable you like after each file change. It accepts configuration scripts and, with about two lines of code, can even do 80% of what autotest can do. There is a lot of power in the flexibility with this one.
The RailsBridge and Rails Core team are joining up once again for another Rails BugMash. The BugMash is going on this weekend, September 26 & 27, 2009. If you didn't get a chance to participate last month, it's a lot of fun and an easy way to leave your mark on our favorite framework. Check out the RailsBridge wiki for more information.
mod_write has been around for .. well, ever. But, not many people fully understand the power that it provides or may not necessarily feel comfortable diving right in. This week, Net Tuts has released a great article walking you through step-by-step exactly how mod_rewrite works and, as always, provides a lot of pretty and informative supporting graphics.
This one is a little bit older, but certainly worthy of a mention. Norman Clarke's friendly_id gem for Rails is a feature-rich ActiveRecord slugging library. Not only does it do the basic slugging features (like permalink_fu, or find-param) but it also supports slug history and versioning, scoped slugs, reserved words, a custom slug generator, unicode and accented characters, and the list goes on.
Ruby5 is released Tuesday and Friday mornings. To stay informed about and active with this podcast, we encourage you to do one of the following:
Today's Ruby5 has two new hosts, Jim & Nick who will be helping produce Friday podcasts. They talk about new database libraries, a useful caching library, and a new screencast, more or less.
CloudCrowd, Static, testing speeds, and databases optimization are covered in this episode. And, what starts with a little foreigner must also end with a little foreigner.
OpenID, Presenters and Cells, git-deploy, and the dog-pile effect are just some of the topics covered in this Friday morning episode. RubyConf also made the list, although it probably shouldn't since they rejected us.
The Rails 2.3.4 release and security updates start off this Tuesday episode. We also cover Rails Magazine, memory bloat, Bullet, Fiscali, and a little bit of Ruby 1.9.
