  • GitHub repo Ruby on Rails

    Ruby on Rails

    Project mention: rails-hidden_autocomplete: Rails-side fix for Firefox randomly modifying hidden inputs | | 2021-09-20

    This is a Rails plugin to add autocomplete="off" to all hidden form inputs generated by Rails. This is necessary because Firefox has a long-standing bug where it may populate hidden inputs without autocomplete="off" with completely random values. Since Rails uses hidden fields extensively for CSRF protection and non-standard HTTP methods, this issue is also tracked in the main Rails tracker here:

  • GitHub repo Jekyll

    :globe_with_meridians: Jekyll is a blog-aware static site generator in Ruby

    Project mention: Wikis don't work for software documentation | | 2021-09-21

    There are also many open source generators out there that are worth mentioning: MkDocs and Docusaurus to name a couple popular ones. If you need something more customizable, Jekyll and Hugo are good options. Generic static site generators however tend to add a lot of complexity so we'd recommend going for something more light-weight.

  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo Discourse

    A platform for community discussion. Free, open, simple.

    Project mention: Please stop closing forums and moving people to Discord | | 2021-09-16

  • GitHub repo Gitlab CI

    GitLab CE Mirror | Please open new issues in our issue tracker on

    Project mention: CircleCI Vs. GitLab: Choosing The Right CI/CD Tool | | 2021-03-15

    Do you know G2 awards 4.4 stars to both GitLab & CircleCI? Just like GitHub stars, StackShares stack counts reflect the popularity of technology. CircleCI boasts around 7.4k stacks, while GitLab enjoys 31.1k stacks. Besides, GitLab as well as GitLab CI are open-source technologies and have garnered 22k+ stars on GitHub. Wait, this is not a reflection of how good GitLab is at CI/CD. These numbers reflect overall popularity. CircleCI is primarily “a niche-focused continuous integration tool” while GitLab wears multiple hats, including “version control & code collaborator.”

  • GitHub repo Vagrant

    Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments.

    Project mention: How to test your Ansible playbook with Vagrant | | 2021-09-20

  • GitHub repo Devise

    Flexible authentication solution for Rails with Warden.

    Project mention: Why there is no simple default auth in Rails? | | 2021-09-20

    You are right, Devise is still not 7-ready but they're working on it:

  • GitHub repo ruby

    The Ruby Programming Language [mirror]

    Project mention: Notebooks & Visualizations – Welcome to The Observaguild with Anjana Vakil | | 2021-09-08

    Anjana: [laughs] That is entirely my understanding. But you don't even just have to troll them. You can actually use it to very nicely take advantage of whatever Ruby ecosystem things you depend on for whatever the task is at hand.

  • GitHub repo diaspora*

    A privacy-aware, distributed, open source social network.

    Project mention: What was hugely hyped up but flopped? | | 2021-09-19
  • GitHub repo Capistrano

    Project mention: 10 Awesome Ruby Gems for Ruby on Rails Web Development | | 2021-08-21


  • GitHub repo rubocop

    A Ruby static code analyzer and formatter, based on the community Ruby style guide.

    Project mention: Thoughts on this? Blizzard replacing the word "blacklisted" with "blocklisted" in their code. | | 2021-09-19

    And if anyone doubts it's a slippery slope, see "cop" is offensive, and style guides that say to avoid using "kill", despite that being a ubiquitous term in many areas of software. Do we really want to have to bowldlerize our code into the blandest corporate family-friendly terms we can think of? If marketing want to do that to the marketing materials, sure, but I'm not interested in overanalysing my code for imagined offence

  • GitHub repo Spree Commerce

    A headless open source e-commerce platform for global brands

    Project mention: Spree Commerce 4.3 released! | | 2021-09-16

  • GitHub repo Sinatra

    Classy web-development dressed in a DSL (official / canonical repo)

    Project mention: Ruby on Rails VS Hanami - a user suggested alternative | | 2021-08-11

    Sinatra is the oldest competitor of Rails. Although it's not that popular anymore, it's still used in some simple and performance focused services.

  • GitHub repo Sidekiq

    Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby

    Project mention: Using ActiveRecord''s #update_counters to Prevent Race Conditions | | 2021-09-07

    When programming, we have several ways to run code in parallel, including processes, threads, and, more recently (in Ruby), fibers and reactors. In this article, we're only going to worry about threads, as it is the most common form that Rails developers will encounter. For example, Puma is a multithreaded server, and Sidekiq is a multithreaded background job processor.

  • GitHub repo Postal

    ✉️ A fully featured open source mail delivery platform for incoming & outgoing e-mail

    Project mention: How do I create Scalable Email Server(should handle 1M email accounts) just to RECEIVE email(20k emails with attachment/day)? | | 2021-09-14

    Maybe look into

  • GitHub repo Fluentd

    Fluentd: Unified Logging Layer (project under CNCF)

    Project mention: FLUENT | | 2021-09-09


  • GitHub repo homebrew-core

    🍻 Default formulae for the missing package manager for macOS

    Project mention: Age v1.0.0 – simple, modern and secure file encryption | | 2021-09-06

    > age: error: failed to parse recipient file "": "": malformed recipient at line 1

    I'm confused as to how you reached this error message; "age -d" doesn't support recipient files / -R, only identity files (which is what age-keygen produces). It would be helptul to open an issue showing how to reproduce; either there's a bug, or documentation could be improved.

    > o Not available as a brew install

    While age was in beta, it provided a brew tap. But now that 1.0.0 has been released, it has just (3 hours ago!) been added to homebrew-core:

  • GitHub repo faker

    A library for generating fake data such as names, addresses, and phone numbers. (by faker-ruby)

    Project mention: Sort tables (almost) instantly with Ruby on Rails and Turbo Frames | | 2021-09-20

    Here, in addition to the bundling gems, we added Faker to our project to allow us to quickly add seed data to the database and added a Team model and Players resource to our project.

  • GitHub repo Grape

    An opinionated framework for creating REST-like APIs in Ruby.

    Project mention: 16 Best Ruby Frameworks For Web Development | | 2021-06-08

    Grape is a REST-like microframework written in Ruby programming language. Grape is also considered among the best ruby frameworks and can be used to run on top of Rack or can be used to complement the existing web application frameworks such as Sinatra or Rails. The latter can be done through the DSL-based REST-API for communication. The Grape ruby web framework facilitates efficient and meaningful APIs working in the web application domain.

  • GitHub repo ActiveAdmin

    The administration framework for Ruby on Rails applications.

    Project mention: Stop Building a General Purpose API to Power Your Own Front End | | 2021-09-13

    I can't speak much about Rails, as I've only played with it. But I've used a lot Django in the past.

    Regarding the Django admin (in rails you have ActiveAdmin[1]) think if it just as a glorified database explorer. It is an internal tool for developers, product managers and maybe for your support team. It is in no way thought to be used by end users. Every attempt I've seen to use it as such was a catastrophic failure.

    With Django, if you know plain HTML and CSS, with the tools I've mentioned in the comment you're responding to, you can build almost anything... For example, let's say you need a highly interactive client side table.... you can always just attach a Vue or a React component for it by using Unpoly compilers [2].

    I'd say this stack is less useful the more your app needs to work fully offline... but if you don't have that constraint... I cannot think of anything that can't be built faster and safer.



  • GitHub repo Kaminari

    ⚡ A Scope & Engine based, clean, powerful, customizable and sophisticated paginator for Ruby webapps

    Project mention: Servers? What Are Those? | | 2021-07-19

    There are many Ruby Gems like Kaminari for pagination that works with Postgresql/ActiveRecord but not DynamoDB

  • GitHub repo Simple Form

    Forms made easy for Rails! It's tied to a simple DSL, with no opinion on markup.

    Project mention: How is called this conditional set of attribute? | | 2021-09-20

    For example, right now I am on a project that uses SimpleForm and I had the need to conditionally add a class to the input.
