Yes! Before the App Scrolls, there was Michael Bleigh's Rails Wizard . He created the first version during the 2010 Rails Rumble [ Intridea blog post ], and iterated on it a few times. I especially like that he extracted the project into two codebases - the CLI/scrolls and the web version .

I renamed it because ultimately I think it could support more than Rails applications and it definitely should become more than a "new application wizard". …

This post is part of a series called Open Source Citizenry discussing ways to eliminate barriers developers and companies face to participating in the open source community.

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to speak at KCRuby about a topic of my choosing. Rather than use the opportunity to put together a trial run of my upcoming Red Dirt Ruby talk , I decided at the last minute to talk about something that's been on my mind for a long time. While open …

There are several cases in which it might make sense to tailor your app's content based on a user's physical location. But asking them directly is a bit of a pain. Luckily, it's extremely simple to find a user's location knowing only something you will always know about a visitor: their IP address. Today I'll walk you through how to use IPs to geolocate your visitors in a Rails application using Geokit and MongoDB's geospatial indexing with MongoMapper .

…ActiveRecord::Base validates_format_of :site, :with => URI::regexp(%w(http https)) end Thank You Michael Bleigh for sharing this.

Update:

This approach seems flawed. When pass "http://" =~ URI:: regexp("http") it will returns 0 indicating the URL to be valid. So, I recommend to use the regular expression provided at the beginning of the post.

"http://" =~ URI::regexp("http") # => 0 "http://" =~ /^(http|https):\/\/[a-z0-9]+([\-\.]{1}[a-z0-9]+)*\.[a-z]{2,5}(([0-9]{1,5})?\/.*)?$/ix …
