Episode #280

June 12th, 2012

Don't get LeakedIn, secure your routes, use your Savon, catch a Tokaido, put your models in a Display Case, and join the Ruby Study Hall.


Tokaido Status Update

Late last week, Yehuda Katz gave the first status update for his wildly successful Kickstarter project called Tokaido. He says they have the binary build of Ruby taken care of but not GUI for the moment. During a recent Rails Girls event, Terence Lee successfully tested a simple installer script on top of Tokaido to setup machines for attendees.

Yehuda is collaborating with Michal Papis to build Tokaido with the sm (or BDSM) framework which RVM2 is being developed with as well.

If you read Yehuda’s dissertation of the inner workings of Ruby builds, he explains that the core of Tokaido will work on Linux, so it can be used to create a standalone distribution of Ruby for Linux, and maybe even the core of a Tokaido for Linux.
