    Project mention: Ask HN: Open-source project management for non-software projects? | | 2022-01-24

    Have you looked into OpenProject? I find their UI 'clean enough' - compared to Jira and Asana.

  • Webpacker

    Ruby implementation of GraphQL

    Project mention: How to work with an external front-end developer? | | 2021-11-17

    Project mention: E-commerce | | 2021-12-04

    Completely agree. Alternatively, I would look for an open source project like solidus

  • AWS SDK for Ruby

    The official AWS SDK for Ruby.

    Project mention: Using DynamoDB in Your Rails App | | 2021-12-08

    Finally, for the purpose of this series, you will need to have installed Ruby, as well as the AWS SDK for Ruby.

  • Fusuma

    Multitouch gestures with libinput driver on Linux (by iberianpig)

    Project mention: Sodalite: A Pantheon experience for Fedora Silverblue | | 2022-01-09

    Why not to use fusuma? I remember using it on Hera and it worked actually better than current implementation in Odin.

  • Hashie

    Hashie is a collection of classes and mixins that make Ruby hashes more powerful.

    Project mention: Metaprogramming Smarter Hashes in Ruby | | 2021-11-01

    One of the more mature attempts (which I no longer use in my projects, but used to) is hashie.

    Project mention: What is the reference style used in springer articles? | | 2021-11-14
