Sorry about the delay on this one folks. Enjoy! 🙂

Stats Breakdown

Notable Projects

  • acts_like_git: Crappy name, but this Rails plugin really does some neat stuff. It allows you to essentially wrap a model around a git repository. This plugin has been in the works for a while, but court3nay announced that it’s ready for the world this week. This is definitely an awesome example of collaboration and cooperation on GitHub!
  • activeritalin: I just had to check out this project. This disables @find_by_sql@ to prevent ugly hacks and shortcuts from cropping up in your app. What’s better is that it adds a new method, @find_by_sql_with_excuse@ to really ensure that you have to think twice about it. Who needs coding standards when you can just have a plugin enforce it?
  • roxy: This is a fantastically easy way to make your Ruby code extendable and easier to use. In a manner similar to association extensions and named scopes in Rails, Roxy allows you do define proxy methods on the fly. Check out rwdaigle’s blog post for some more examples.
