This tutorial was published on Tristan Penman’s blog as the result of the author’s experiment on improving the performance and reducing a memory usage of a data structure he implemented using Ruby. He has been reimplementing the core functionality in C++, exposing it to Ruby via a native extension. Let’s follow Tristan and investigate the way to create Ruby Gem with native extensions!
Hey! Glad to see you again! Remember how in the previous parts of this tutorial we added DataTables plug-in to Rails application and set up static and Ajax-sourced tables? In this last part, we’re going to set up another table and get familiar with Server-side processing.
It seems like almost a month passed from our latest Rails digest. Many great conferences have taken place in June and July – you can watch some videos from GORUCO and Ruby HACK here. However, we also have a lot of interesting stuff to share with you. Since the last digest, we collected a bunch of nice Rails GitHub open source projects that will be definitely useful for your work! Here you will find project management software, Bootstrap 4 Ruby gem, performance dashboard for Postgres, CMS, optimized JSON gem and more… Meet the new ‘Weekly trending Ruby on Rails repositories. July, 23’!
We are back with our freaky Syndicode digests names! Despite we call them quite weird, only here you will find really interesting materials that will help you not to get lost in the world of software development. We try to pick the most relevant and useful news on frontend, backend, tools, technologies, design, and trends. So, make yourself comfortable and enjoy our new Syndicode Digest #58 – Embroidery master!
Sometimes you work with a tool but don’t know that it has some secret features that can speed up the process or improve the final quality. How many of you knew that Rails has a built-in method to load configuration defined in
ymlfiles? If you hear this for the first time, thanks to Paweł Dąbrowski today you will learn about YAML files for RoR apps configuration!
As Ruby on Rails agency, we’re always looking for tools and news related to RoR or Ruby. Nokogiri (鋸) is a Ruby gem providing HTML, XML, SAX, and Reader parsers. Among Nokogiri’s many features is the ability to search documents via XPath or CSS3 selectors.
This week we doubled the number of digests. There are so many great news we can’t fit in one, so we made two. But only as an exception, so don’t get too excited! By the way, рave you ever woken up before an alarm clock? We think it could happen when you really can’t relax always thinking about your work, projects, deadlines, bugs, fixes and so on. Know what? It wouldn’t help if you’ll always be distressed. So relax and get a good sleep. Have a Happy Friday with our latest Syndicode Digest #53 – Anxious pillow!
Look what we’ve found! This is the results of 2018 Ruby on Rails Developer Community Survey! Over 2,000 members of the Rails community kindly contributed their thoughts on tools, frameworks, and workflows in their day to day development lives. Even if you could say that the number of respondents is not representative, still, from these responses we hope to get an understanding of where the Rails community is as a whole in 2018. Enjoy!

We have published many articles about Rails benefits and how good this framework for different types of marketplaces or web applications. But there’s nothing perfect in this world. So every single programming language or a framework has specific problems to be fixed by the developers. In this article, we’ll show you security issues solutions in RoR.
