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’!
Our new ‘Syndicode Digest #59 – Intrusive code’ will be a real lighthouse for the lost developers. If you feel desperation and disappointment – you wrong! Because every effort you made, even if you can’t see the result for a long time, makes you closer to your goal. Even if you don’t know what your goal is yet. Keep trying and never give up!
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!
If you are working with chatbots, now is the time you can use some amazing framework to simplify your task. At the end of May Stealth Ruby framework for conversational voice and text chatbots was launched. With Stealth you can customize and extend your chatbot by writing code. Isn’t it cool?
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!
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!
At first, we did not pay attention to what day is it today. But today is Friday the 13th! It is considered an unlucky day so you should immediately stop working. Of course, if you consider your work as just a work… But if you love what you do – nothing should prevent you from coding, developing, deploying, researching and so on. This year, in 2018, Friday the 13th will also occur later on July 13. We do believe that you love what you do! So, have a happy deploying (we’re also deploying today!) with our latest Syndicode Digest #51 – Lucky number!
Last year we shared with you the outstanding list of the most used Rails gems od all the time. And we hope that was useful for you. Today we’re going to mention 4 of those gems and remind you what they were created for. Meet 4 gems for testing your RoR application!
