Earlier this week Engine Yard launched a new Rails news website called Rails Dispatch, dedicated to provide timely releases of educational content. The first article is by Yehuda Katz entitled “How Rails 3 Makes your Life Better”, where he talks about some new features in Rails 3 as well as a screncast where he creates a Rails 3 blog in 18 minutes, without cheating (scaffolding).
JRuby Guru Nick Sieger recently released Warbler 1.0. We caught up with Nick at the RubyNation conference and got a minute of his time for this quick interview.
On Wednesday Brian Mario released Mysql2, a simple and fast Mysql library for ruby which binds to libmysql. Not only does it cast values right into the correct Ruby objects but it's 25% faster then the existing Mysql gem (which only returns nil and String).
If you enjoy attending or speaking at Ruby conferences, RubyThere.com a new website by Keavy McMinn that not only lists out all of the upcoming Ruby conferences and events, but also shows open CFPs.
the validates_date_time gem from Nick Stenning extends the kinds of validations you can do in stock rails. It provides some string parsing, so you can assign strings of several different formats to date fields and have it 'just work'. You can also validate that dates are before or after dates, or between dates as well. And those dates can come from other fields in your model too.
Find yourself looking through lots of hashes or ActiveRecord models on IRB or the Rails console, then you need to install awesome_print by Michael Dvorkin. Awesome_print uses proper indenting and colors to print hashes beautifully, allowing you to read through array’s of hashes without squinting.
If you have a moment (and you dig the cast) do us a favor and give us a nice review on iTunes. Thanks in advance!
