This week in Rails

A few weeks ago Godfrey Chan started a new weekly newsletter called this week in Rails, where he’s covering the most interesting commits, pull requests on the Rails code base. In his most recent newsletter he mentioned a commit that introduced a new helper called “sanitize_sql_like” to help escape characters with special meaning in a LIKE clause, another that added a to_io method to UploadedFilewhich allows you to directly manipulate a uploaded (temp) file, and a bunch of fixes including getting rid of the wrapping divs on hidden form fields and some optimizations to the postgreSQL adapter. If you enjoy living on the edge of rails, this could be a great weekly newsletter to subscribe to.
