Welcome to 2019! The new year has just started but promises to be as awesome as can be. Particularly because we have some great new open source Rails repositories aimed to make your life better and happier. In this monthly trending Ruby on Rails repositories from the 9th of January 2019 we’ll explore… embedded Ruby ‘exception reporting service’, Rails app configuration manager, Ruby Serverless Framework, a tool for coordinating the execution of security scanners and many other neat Rails GitHub open source projects!
We still might think what is better in the cloud AWS or GCP… But after much community demand, AWS Lambda serverless platform now supports Ruby as a first-class language, opening up an interesting new way to deploy Ruby code. Can you hear this awesome news? AWS Lambda now supports Ruby!
Today we’d like to tell you about Corral! This is a serverless MapReduce framework. In a nutshell, Corral is a framework for writing arbitrary MapReduce applications that can be executed in AWS Lambda. It was the result of using Lambda as an execution environment (like Hadoop MapReduce uses YARN).
