  • Minitest, we've been doing it wrong?
    4 projects | | 2 Oct 2022
    The new test convention is now "test/**/test_*.rb" instead of "test/**/*_test.rb". For example, Puma and Minitest are popular repositories using this naming pattern.
  • Ask HN: Codebases with great, easy to read code?
    35 projects | | 21 Mar 2022 really removed the FUD for me when i started learning Ruby and Rails. Its full of metaprogramming and fancy tricks but is also quite small, practical and informal in its style.

    e.g. "assert_equal" is really just "expected == actual" at it's core but it uses both both a block param (a kind of closure) for composing a default message and calls "diff" which is a dumb wrapper around the system "diff" utility (horrors!). There is even some evolved nastiness in there for an API change that uses the existing assert/refute logic to raise an informative message. this is handled with a simple if and not some sort of complex hard-to-follow factory pattern or dependency injection misuse.

  • Ruby through the lens of Go
    9 projects | | 16 Apr 2021
    One of the things I love the most about Ruby is that it tends to coalesce around one or two really popular libraries. Rails is the big one obviously, but over time you see libraries designed for a particular purpose "winning" over other things. This includes things like linting/code analysis (Rubocop), authentication (Devise), testing (RSpec and Minitest) and more. The emphasis is on making something good great rather than making a lot of different good things.
