This post by Steve Randy Tantra goes over some of the neat advanced editing features provided by Sublime Text 2 and which should feel very familiar to TextMate users. The great strength of Sublime is what Steve describes as “fuzzy searching”. It's pervasive throughout the app: you can search for commands, search for files, search for strings inside files. It makes it easier to get started and find what you’re looking for before you know the perfect key-combo to jump to it.
Tyler Hunt wrote up a post about his experience setting up a new Rails environment by using rbenv instead of RVM, and how he replaced Gemsets. Some don't enjoy having to use 'bundle exec' before every executable gem, considering for instance that it can add to the overall execution time.
Thanks to binstubs — a neat feature of Bundler that tells it to systematically install gems inside of “bin” directory within the application’s root folder — you can make sure that local gems are executed first before any other gem you might have installed on your system, or under the current Ruby version in rbenv.
This interesting blog post by Adam Langley explains that redirecting people to HTTPS is not as secure as you might think. It leaves you vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks when the first request is HTTP, that one could intercepted before users are redirected to the HTTPS one. No what you want to do is to use a header called: strict-transport-security or HSTS. This way, it's not the user’s burden to decide whether a certificate is secure or not. With HSTS, users will not be able to access a page with a certificate that isn’t proper.
