Flotsam and jetsam from my weekend.
- Monitoring your Continuous Integration Server with Traffic Lights and an Arduino - This is the sort of thing that geeks do when they're trying to avoid actual work.
- How to use bundler with multiple Gemfiles in plugins/extensions - I thought I might need to do this last week. I still might, so tucking the link away.
- How We're Hacking Email at HubSpot - Some tips for people who want to ensure their emails get delivered and read.
- About This Week's Availability - Kudos to GitHub for complete transparency. And I'd like to meet the morons who are DDOSing them in a dark alley with a baseball bat.
- red, green, refactor - the tools for success - Lots of links to useful-looking test-fu here.
- simplecov - Supremely easy test coverage tool for Ruby 1.9.
- rack-bouncer - Middleware to send unwanted browsers elsewhere.
- Getting Started with iOS Development using Sinatra on Heroku/Cedar - Native iOS application that consumes a web API, that is.
- asset_sync - Hook into the Rails asset pipeline to synchronize assets to an AWS S3 bucket.
- Prickle - DSL to extend capybara with even more syntactic sugar. Useful for those who don't remember xpath off the top of their head.
- standalone-migrations - Use Rails migrations in non-Rails projects.
- Autoenv - Sort of like an .rvmrc file for shell variables. If a directory contains a .env file, it'll automatically be executed when you cd into it. (Hat tip: Wynn Netherland)
- kickoff - HTML5 template for Sinatra applications.
- Spree 1.0.0 Released - A major milestone in ecommerce for Rails.
- Firefox's New Tab Page lands on Nightly and Aurora channels - A bit of eye candy that I've been enjoying in edge Firefox.
- Code Climate - Commercial service to monitor your source code for quality, hotspots, metrics and so on.
