    Thing is, once you have 1) and 2), the added complexity of bringing in, integrating, and writing for a different tool to achieve 3) begins to make little sense, when you can just go along and do it just as well in rspec anyway... It's a matter of balance and heavily depends on the project.

    > For myself, I'm fine with the typing being in a separate .rbs file

    We type[0] by having one separate .rbs file per .rb file. Works really well with an editor's vertical splits: type outline on one side, code on the other. That, or use something like vim-projectionist[1].

    Thanks! I'll pass it on to the team :D

    I've got to say, the folks at Intercom made it particularly fun. They were sending us traces and graphs from their internal systems when we trying to figure out some issues with them (e.g. we ran into this datadog context problem: https://github.com/DataDog/dd-trace-rb/issues/1389)
