You've probably heard about Yehuda Katz’s Tokaido project based on his Kickstarter campaign to make it simpler for beginners to setup and install a Rails environment for development on OS X. The project has inspired Jeremy McAnally to create Railcar, a MacRuby application which creates an isolated environment for you with Homebrew, rb-env, Ruby, and some default packages. All of this is isolated from the rest of your system. The project isn't near a public release, but if you want to get involved with helping the project Jeremy is looking for assistance with development, or donations to help fund development.
Schnitzelpress is a lightweight mobile-friendly blogging engine which comes with Haml, Sass and Markdown baked in and recently hit version 0.2.0. Unlike Octopress, it’s not a static HTML generator and instead uses a MongoDB database and is designed to run very fast on a free Heroku plan. This new version brings the ability to delete posts, a centralized command line tool, a configuration page, a custom asset pipeline and a bunch of other useful improvements.
If you try to avoid close coupling inside your app and you feel squeamish about Rails sharing all instances variables from your controller actions with your views, a new gem called proffer might be a solution for you.
The goal is the same the decent_exposure gem but the difference lies in the implementation. With decent_exposure the variables need to be exposed at the top of the controller. With proffer you call the proffer method and pass it a key — a symbol for the variable name — and a value — the actual value.
If you’ve given Ruby 1.9.3 a try since last summer you’re probably aware that ruby-debug19 isn’t compatible with it which has prevented some people from upgrading because their debugging workflow is tied to the gem. Pry, a new debugger which comes with its own ecosystem has already been working fine with 1.9.3 for a long time. It's a great tool and you should be giving it a try. But Pry is not exactly like ruby-debug. So the good news for you conservative debuggers out there is that the ruby-debug19 project was forked by Gabriel Horner and you can now use his new gem simply called debugger which is fully compatible with Ruby 1.9.3.
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:
Parallelism in Ruby, learn Ruby with Rubeque, Torque 2.0 released, Rack Cache and Memcache on Heroku, beautiful Github pages, and Github spring cleaning.
A new Rails 3.2.3 with safer defaults for mass assignments, a catalog to make sense of Heroku's millions of add-ons, a fast Puma webserver to chase the Unicorns and their Rainbows!, an Engage! gem to do just that with your customers, bundle outdated to save you from the update dance, and Christopher Walken singing the praises of Ruby on Rails while we ditch it for LOLCODE, because it haz scale.
Yehuda rises to the call with RailsApp, touching your web pages with hammer, two different ckeditor asset gems, teeny finite state machines with micromachine, diffbench, curator, and Jruby in the Google Summer of Code.
Factory 3.0 says bye to Ruby 1.8 and Rails 2, heroku_san ensures you do your deploys right, Bullet 2.3.0 speeds up your queries, gambas inlines your PDF generation, RVM asks for a testing hand, and Jared Carroll shows how to test an external API.
