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 developer and contributor, available for long- or short-term consulting, with solid experience in working as part of a distributed team. If you'd like to hire me, drop me a line. I'm also the author of Rails Rescue Handbook and Rails Freelancing Handbook.


A Fresh Cup

Notes on Rails and other development


Double Shot #1520

  • Safari is the new IE - Given that Apple is increasingly the new Microsoft, this is not very surprising.
  • gkv - A wrapper for git that turns it into a key-value store. Probably not something you'd want to use in production.
  • Docker Cheat Sheet - Lots and lots of good info here.

Double Shot #1519

  • UI Testing in Xcode 7 - I really need to look into this, even though I have grown to detest Xcode (and coding for Apple in general, for that matter).
  • Opal Playground - Like JSFiddle but with moar ruby.
  • Maktoub - Rails engine for newsletter management.

Double Shot #1518

  • Squib - Ruby DSL for designing card games.
  • Bitnami Container Images for Docker - Now in Beta - Another option for Dockerizing your setup, from an outfit that has long delivered good server images in a variety of formats.
  • Atom 1.0 - I don't care to fight the editor wars, but it's always nice to see a new one reach the stable release point.

Double Shot #1517


Double Shot #1516

  • GitFlow Considered Harmful - An argument against one of the popular ways to use git in a team.
  • No Code of Conduct - If your software project simply must have a Code of Conduct, I'd pick this one.
  • Pale Moon - A fork of Firefox that's avoiding mass UI and functionality changes in favor of familiarity and customization.
