Hey! It’s been a while, but we’re back. Here are some interesting bits that happend in off Rails world lately:

  • Eventide 2.0 has been released. If you haven’t heard about it yet, it’s a collection of libraries implementing event sourcing, CQRS and Pub/Sub for Ruby. It is fairly complex and documentation is still missing a straightforward tutorial, but it’s worth looking at and knowing that it’s actively developed.
  • If you think the world is missing yet another static website generator, you might take a look at Clayoven. It has been developed mostly by one person over the course of 7 years and presents some interesting approaches (for one, it’s much less blog-focused, which really speak to me).
  • Also in department of one-person-awesome-projects, there is Midinous. It’s interesting, because it’s a GUI project, which is quite rare in Ruby world, and it’s about generating music, which aside from Sonic Pi, is also quite unique topic.
  • If you are worried about Ruby future, like me, you may also read a rant-ish post from Bozhidar Batsov, creator of Rubocop. He expresses his doubts in Ruby, Where do We Go Now?. There is also an interesting discussion on Reddit.
  • If you want to impress your fellow senior Ruby developers, try those Ruby Literals You May Not Know from Michael Kohl.

That’s it for today. And see you, hopefully soon!
