Peter Cooper over on Ruby Inside sifted through several posts in the ruby-dev mailing list to put together an “interview” with Ruby core on the state of Ruby 1.8, 1.9 and 2.0. And, if you're not using Ruby 1.9.2 daily, then you're quickly falling behind!
Late last week Phil Whelan wrote up a great walkthrough showing how to do MapReduce with Ruby using Cloudera's distribution of Apache Hadoop. If you want to build your own MapReduce cluster on EC2, this is just for you.
Kerry Buckley presented and released an incredibly useful RSpec presentation late last week, which is now available on Github. It uses the slippy jQuery slideshow library and it's overflowing with useful pointers and tidbits. Go flip through it now. Right now. Go!
Jim Crossley has been posting some great articles over on the TorqueBox blog. TorqueBox, by the way, is a Java-based Ruby application platform. His posts cover clustering, session replication, background tasks, and more.
A while back now, Brian Lopez (of the mysql2 gem) wrote and released streamly. Streamly is a streaming REST client that wraps the libcurl library. With it, you can make REST requests to web services and immediately begin processing the results as soon as your first chunk comes in.
If you're like us, you've probably got more than one RubyGems.org account. And, if so, you've discovered that it can be a little annoying to switch back and forth between contexts. This is where Keycutter, by Josh French, comes in. It's an account manager for RubyGems and it builds itself right into the gem command.
Cartographer has been around for a little while and it's a library which makes building Google Map graphics and overlays trivial. And what's notable is that it's recently been updated to support both Google Maps API v3, as well as Rails 3.
Just this week we came across Micetrap, a new gem by Josep Bach. It's a library that sets "traps" (also called honeypots) by simulating vulnerable services and ports and then reports to you when someone attempts to crack them. It can be a useful tool for slowing down and diverting the attention of those baddies.
