    The swiss army knife of RBI generation

    First let's introduce the tool: Sorbet is a gem developed by Stripe that aims to bring type notation syntax and type checking support for the Ruby ecosystem by utilizing the "Gradual typing" philosophy, it also provide type generation from YARD comments via the tapioca gem, allowing to grow alongside the already built Ruby codebase.

  • steep

    Static type checker for Ruby

    1. Lack of LSP: Since this new type check solution is quite new (at the time of writing), we don't have nice editor support via LSP. Things like steep will probably solve this in the future, but it's not a reliable solution now. On the other hand, Sorbet has existed for many years on the market and already provides a lot of tools for code intelligence, you can see more in this blog post.

  • ocaml

    The core OCaml system: compilers, runtime system, base libraries

    If you have been in the Ruby community for the past couple of years, it's possible that you're not a super fan of types or that this concept never passed through your mind, and that's totally cool. I myself love the dynamic and meta-programming nature of Ruby, and honestly, by the time of this article's writing, we aren't on the level of OCaml for type checking and inference, but still, there are a couple of nice things that types with sorbet bring to the table:

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
