If you’re doing proper test driven development on a large project, you may reach a point where your test suite gets a little too long to run conveniently. This week Joakim Kolsjö dropped us a line to let us know about testbot, a gem which makes it really easy to distribute your test processes across multiple computers.
Blogcast, by Tian Valdemar Davis, is a simplistic Rails 3 blogging engine which has some real nice intellegent defaults and tries to keep things simple so you can focus on writing. It has live post previews, SEO friendly URLs, uses Markdown, has akismet for comment spam filtering, the ability to preview comments before you post them, and a very simple admin screen.
The next time you need to do an autocomplete text field with Rails 3, you may want to check out the Rails 3 jQuery Autocomplete gem by Crowd Interactive. It works with active record and MongoDB, it supports formtastic, it comes with some testing helpers, and it’s very customizable so you won’t end up hacking up the gem if you need it to behave a little differently.
If you’re using Resque for your background processing and you’re dealing with large amounts of jobs, you probably have had the experience where a bunch of jobs fail all at once. ResqueCleaner by Tatsuya Ono allows you to display statistics on failed jobs, retry subsets of those failed jobs, remove failed jobs, and even filter through the failed jobs to get more information about what’s going on.
When you add metric_fu to your project, you’re adding a ton of dependencies. Even if you’re only running metric_fu in your test environment, with bundler all those dependencies are going to get installed when you run bundle. This is why you may want to check out Metrical by Ian Heckler. Metrical is a small wrapper around metric_fu that allows it to run as an executable on any project.. No setup or configuration required.
When it comes to internationalization, you may be having nightmares about YAML files. This is where the Enrichments library by Paul Engel comes in. The Enrichments library allows you to edit the translations right there in the page itself. It uses jQuery to highlight what can be translated on the page and when you click it, it allows you to edit the text right there.
If you are new to Ruby and you want to take a large step down the path of Ruby enlightenment, then Ruby Koans is for you. It teaches some of the same things as TryRuby.org, but with the Koans you download a bunch of ruby files, and then run Rake. Each file contains tests you need to make pass, and as you code them up you inevitably learn more about Ruby and testing.
