Ruby Syslog README

Posted by kev Wed, 25 Jul 2007 18:21:00 GMT

I hate the fact that googling syslog ruby didn’t turn up anything useful, and the rdoc doesn’t seem to be there. So, I’m posting the README from the extension in Ruby’s source. This is as much for me as for you. Using PageRank for good is.. well.. good I’d assume.

The Caboose Pushes Rails Documentation

Posted by kev Fri, 04 Aug 2006 20:44:00 GMT

You’ve probably noticed many of the popular Rails writers are working on books. Since we’re all off working on other sources of documentation we really haven’t had time to work on the Rails API docs themselves. This is our attempt to push things in the right direction.

Courtenay has started up a paypal account for donations which would go to funding someone to give the API docs some sweet sweet lovin’. We’re shooting for 5000 USD. I’ll be putting in $100 and some adsense revenue. Do your part. Help us get better docs.

Donate via Paypal:

Watch the donations roll in.

Configuring Rails Environments: The Cheat Sheet

Posted by kev Mon, 22 May 2006 08:24:00 GMT

These are options allowed by Rails::Configuration in Rails 1.1.2. This list is generally exhaustive (and often taken directly from the documentation), but more detailed documentation can be found in the source code itself where these options are found as class accessor methods (cattr_accessor).

Update: If you like it, digg it.

Update 2: Also see my Guide to Environments in Rails 1.1 for information on how specific configurations work.

Link: Distributed Ruby Guide

Posted by kev Sat, 20 May 2006 17:55:00 GMT

With _why’s recent announcement of the Drb Renaissance, I figured it was time to finally get my feet wet and learn about using Distributed Ruby.

Fortunately, Chad Fowler author of the fantastic Rails Recipes, has done my work for me.

Go check out his guide for an excellent quick read on the essentials of Drb.

Rannotate the Rails

Posted by kev Fri, 19 May 2006 01:20:00 GMT

Connor Hunt has just released Rannotate, a rails application and rdoc generator that work together to allow users to add notes to documentation.

You can find the Rannotated Rails documentation here.

As always, if there are problems with the documentation, please file a ticket with the keyword ‘docs’ so it can be remedied.

Update: Ok, this is really way cool.
