At the beginning of each Kansas City Ruby meeting, I do a quick presentation on some new neat things from the last month in Ruby news.
What’s New In Ruby
Ruby on Rails 3.2 released
- Faster development mode
- End of Ruby 1.8.7
- Automatically shows when > half a second
class User < ActiveRecord::Base store :settings, accessors: [ :color, :homepage ] end
u = User.new(color: 'black', homepage: '37signals.com') u.color # Accessor stored attribute
# Any attribute, even if not specified with an accessor u.settings[:country] = 'Denmark'
RubyMine 4.0 released
RubyMine is a popular Ruby and Rails IDE by JetBrains (the folks behind IntelliJ IDEA).
A focus has been put on improving its performance and UI, but it now also supports all of Rails 3.2 features, including CoffeeScript compilation right from the IDE.
Spree 1.0 Released
Spree is almost certainly the most popular, fully featured Rails-based e-commerce system and its creators are proud to announce the release of version 1.0.0.
The Github backed Capistrano deployment management UI.
Guard::RSpectacle automatically tests your application with RSpec when files are modified.
Some fantastic pictures of Kansas City:
The Kansas City skyline at night. Very nice picture.
Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins art museum has an installation of four giant shuttlecocks on the lawn. A great place to take friends for a picture when you’re bored.
