Weekly trending Ruby on Rails repositories. September, 24. Syndicode Rails digest

Weekly trending Ruby on Rails repositories. September, 24

Despite this digest is called ‘weekly’, we assume that it is now rather ‘monthly’ issue of the most popular GitHub Rails open source projects. But such a period of time gives us an opportunity to select really great repositories and evaluate them to include here. And today, in still so-called ‘Weekly trending Ruby on Rails repositories’, on September 24, we’ll show high-performance implementation Ruby, Graphql-ruby, geocoding solution for Ruby, open-source testing framework, JSON:API serializer for Ruby Objects and many more cool projects!

Syndicode Digest #69 – Razorblade strokes

All the week long we couldn’t wait for this chance to share with you all those interesting and important news we’re sharing today! Of course, we could write about each of them separately. But you must agree, that if a piece of news is included in the digest it has more value for the reader. That means it was selected and kept for the special moment. The same thing is happening with good developers – they don’t need instantly share all their knowledge, but to keep, accumulate and just use where it is most appropriate. Read our new Syndicode Digest #69 – Razorblade strokes. And listen too! If you understand what is hidden in the digest’s name…

For instance, you should know that Firefox 62 added support for Variable Fonts, or that Visual Studio Code released a new version this August, with Settings editor UI and Custom menu bar… Let’s move to the main part!

Syndicode Digest #67 – Imperfect aftermath

Nobody is perfect. And you too. And your code, project, commit etc. The only way to find out the how you rate what you did is the level how happy you are with it. The same thing happening with bad evaluations. Who are they, those experts who can tell you that your contribution (you have spent several months to complete) is a disaster? All the opinions are subjective. So relax and enjoy your lovely long-created ‘disaster’. And make it better next time, please. p.s. Our ‘ Syndicode Digest #67 – Imperfect aftermath’ is not perfect too! But so good!

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!

Syndicode Digest #65 – Modest genius

When you’re modest, nobody will know how much you do. But when people claiming too much, they’re not taken seriously as talented ones. Because talent comes with modesty and thoughts that your achievement will be evaluated sooner or later. Better sooner, of course. However, sometimes you have to tell the world who are you. Don’t be too shy to share your articles, codebase, design, repositories, and ideas! If you wouldn’t know people’s opinion you will never move forward and get recognition! Or fail. But daring to fail is also an important part of your unicorn’s path! Let’s dare with new ‘Syndicode Digest #65 – Modest genius’!
