Double Shot #756
I am not rushing to be at my desk on Monday mornings these days.
- Rails 3.1.3 has been released - An "oops" release to fix regressions in 3.1.2.
- How can I populate header values in SOAP document? - It took a lot longer than it should have for me to figure out how to pass arbitrary SOAP headers with soap4r. It's easy when you know how.
- Generic SOAP Client - Good online first-round tester for new WSDLs. Well, to the extent that anything about SOAP is good.
- Firefox to get more powerful web development tools - I've been playing with these in nightly builds. They're good enough to take care of a bunch of stuff I usually use Firebug for.
- Ruby one-liners - Another take on one-line coding in Ruby, fromm Benoit Hamelin. (Hat tip to Peteris Krumins for pointing this one out to me).
- s3cmd: Command line S3 client - I've probably mentioned this one before, but I had to dredge it up for use last week. Very handy when you have to shuffle files around from S3 and all you have is a terminal session.
- capistrano-calendar - Push deployment notifications over to Google calendar.
- Introducing Node.js and Engine Yard Labs - Engine Yard adds an experimental service and lets you set up node.js apps through it.
- Smooth CoffeeScript - Free online book.
- Fluentd: the missing log collector - Ruby-based, JSON-carrying log aggregator.
- How to set up Jenkins CI on a Mac - This was helpful as I spun up a new CI server on a Mac Mini. One thing I learned is that "2048" and "2048M" are distinctly different when you're setting up Java heap size.
