If you've worked on a web application in the past eight years or so, there's a good chance you've written mapping or geocoding functionality. I've worked on multiple Rails applications in the past year which geocode certain pieces of data; each time, I had to remind myself which Ruby gems to use for searching, how to retrieve coordinate information from the browser, and the correct way to write tests for the behavior I wanted to add.
Introducing " Geocoding on Rails"
Tracking edge is probably the best choice up until 0.3.0 final is released.
Please give 0.3 a test drive
Get going with: $ gem install daemon-kit --pre
or update your Gemfile: gem 'daemon-kit', '~> 0.3.0.rc2'
Afterwards run the following to get your local daemon updated: $ rake daemon_kit:upgrade
Blocker for a 0.3 final
There is only one blocker …
…don't have any real authority over them. Ruby Central has given him a grant to work on Rubygems and Bundler.
I wanted Sidekiq to be better than the status quo but was scared to death of the amount of time needed to support it over the next 5 years if it took off. I had two strategies from the start:
1. Be very picky about the features I accept and how they're implemented
It's my project so I have to support every line of code in it. Features that I know …
Scout Ruby Gem
With our dependencies added, it's time to add the build instructions for installing the Scout gem:
This installs the scout gem and removes files the end user doesn't need that were built during packaging.
This is a simple case, so the only addition to our config/projects/scout.rb project DSL is dependency 'scout' …
Does Open Source have a sustainability problem? What percentage of projects are "ghost towns" after one year? Three years? Five years? Perhaps more importantly, high profile projects like Rubygems and Bundler take an incredible amount of time and effort to support existing users and move forward while also maintaining compatibility with hundreds of thousands of users and gems.
With the status quo, users get a huge amount of value but OSS developers burn out quickly due to the time and effort required to support their projects well.
…1.9.2), the right Ruby-On-Rails Version (2.3.8 or 3.2), and the right RubyGems Version (say 1.3.5). The gems or plugins have their own versions, too. The whole system only works if everything fits together. In the beginning this is no problem, for a new system usually everything is up-to-date. But then time goes on, and you have to update the Linux version, or the Ruby version, or the RubyGems Version. And suddenly the other versions no longer fit. It can be very frustrating to get …

Update to the latest Rubygems version: gem update --system
Install gems critical to Rails development, e.g. gem install bundler foreman pg rails thin --no-rdoc --no-ri
You can set project-specific Ruby and gem versions by running the rbenv local command within your project directory: rbenv local 1.9.3-p385
If you follow the steps above and find you're having issues with rbenv, check your echo $PATH . Most likely you're not seeing the appropriate ~/.rbenv dir.
If so, …
…performance boost as well as an associated reduction in bandwidth consumption. Building an API that generates plists is straightforward with the help of a couple of Ruby gems.
I'll be sharing code examples from a recent project that surfaced a large, multi-faceted API to hundreds of iOS devices using binary plists. I'll also have plenty of resources for those interested in learning more. It's sure to be a great time! Hope to see you there.
Changes since RDoc 3.12.1:
RDoc:: RI::Store is now RDoc::Store so ri data generated by RDoc 4 cannot be read by earlier versions …
