  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building

  • Nokogiri

    Nokogiri (鋸) makes it easy and painless to work with XML and HTML from Ruby.

    Nokogiri 1.11.0 has been released, and one of the exciting updates is the inclusion of pre-compiled native gems for various platforms! If you're using a supported platform, your days of installing nokogiri with native extensions may be over. These changes result, "in much faster installation and more reliable installation". Many thanks to the maintainers and contributors for this great update.

  • Bundler

    If you are using Bundler version 1.x, you may also need to set the specific_platform configuration setting.

  • rubygems

    Library packaging and distribution for Ruby.

    Gem dependencies can be cached along with your app and then you can use that cache to retrieve your application's dependencies, rather than RubyGems. We take advantage of this on a number of projects for various reasons, but the most important one that requires all gems to be vendored is that some applications are deployed to, and the deployments are created in, environments where they cannot access RubyGems directly.
