Our emails not only include a report, listing all entries they logged, but also our " Mini-Pulse", a graphical representation of how much they worked for each project.

A gem that gives you more human like expressions for time and space math. Get fun like 1.hour.ago.to_range and 200.minutes.ago.to words
IdentityCache lets you specify how you want to cache your model objects, at the model level, and adds a number of convenience methods for accessing those objects through the cache. Uses Memcached as the backend …
…callable object as argument. This is to avoid issues when trying to declare a scope with some sort of Time argument:
class Post < ActiveRecord::Base scope :published_last_week , where ( 'published_at >= ?' , 1 . week . ago ) end
Because this won't work as expected: 1.week.ago will be evaluated when the class is loaded, not every time the scope is called.

…current time. Optionally, callers may pass in a Time object, or any object that returns a Time object when sent the now message. The created_at column is set according to that Time value. Returns the value of the created_at timestamp.
