A Fresh Cup is Mike Gunderloy's software development weblog, covering Ruby on Rails and whatever else I find interesting in the universe of software. I'm a full-time Rails and iOS developer.


A Fresh Cup

Notes on Rails and other development


Double Shot #1575

  • Ruby::Pretentious - A gem to support "design driven tests" by building Rspec files directly from your already-finished code.
  • Get Shit Done Rails Version - UI gem to help integrate Bootstrap with Rails. Free version with a forthcoming paid pro version & a marketplace for themes.

Double Shot #1574

  • Announcing Carina by Rackspace - "Instant-on native container environment" currently in free beta that now gives you access to Docker Swarm but has plans to expand to other orchestration tools later.
  • i18n-tasks - Find missing translations and unused keys in Ruby internationalization files.

Double Shot #1573

  • Things To Avoid When Writing CSS - Some of this will rub people the wrong way, especially the advice to avoid breaking CSS up into multiple files.
  • Jekyll 3.0 Released - Static site-builder that lets you toss text to GitHub Pages (or other places) quite simply. There are lots of bells and whistles these days if you want them.

Double Shot #1572


Double Shot #1571

  • Rails DB - Gem that adds in-browser database editor to your Rails projects.
  • Git-integrated app monitoring - Scout's new application monitoring project is shaping up very nicely. Now you can trace slowness issues back to the commit level.
  • Ruby ePub: Franklin - Toolchain for going from Markdown to ebooks.
