Top 10 Ruby DevOps Projects

  • Chef

    Chef Infra, a powerful automation platform that transforms infrastructure into code automating how infrastructure is configured, deployed and managed across any environment, at any scale

    Project mention: Ask HN: Codebases with great, easy to read code? | | 2022-03-21

    I've found the Chef project ( to be high quality and easily readable but I've been working with Chef for like 8 years at this point which might be influencing how I view it.

    Hashicorp projects also seem very well done too especially given how extensible they are.

  • inspec

    InSpec: Auditing and Testing Framework

    Project mention: Ruby: "the best" language for general automation | | 2022-05-12

    The course uses Chef Inspec, an open source Ruby DSL. I made a POC with this tool to automatically check repositories on GitHub, checks like if it contains a gitignore consistent with the language used, if node_modules is not present, etc.

  • Mergify

    Project mention: Source Control your AWS CloudFormation templates with GitHub | | 2022-05-19

    There is another tool called cfn_nag that can check your code for potentially any insecure infrastructure. When you read the documentation around this tool, the author says it can check for things such as:

  • sshkit

    A toolkit for deploying code and assets to servers in a repeatable, testable, reliable way.

    Project mention: Zero downtime deploy using puma & capistrano | | 2021-11-17

    You could try adapting the example in the sshkit readme and override the deploy:restart task to do nothing and then either throw it as an after hook somewhere or run it independently after the deploy.
