What’s Hot on Github – October 2008
What's Hot on Github is a monthly post highlighting interesting projects that are new or updated this month, within the Ruby community that are hosted on Github. Github has become an extremely popular place for Ruby and Rails developers to congregate lately, so I wanted to list some of the new projects, and some of the updated ones, that I have found interesting and that are too small for their own blog post.
This month's picks:
- seinfield - Track your open-source contributions with Github.
- suprails - A funky new substitute for the "rails" command.
- nokogiri - A hpricot alternative that boasts better speed.
- astrotrain - "Scans incoming emails for mapped recipients and sends an HTTP POST somewhere."
- friendly_id - "monkey patched friendly_id that allows for a larger number of duplicate slugs". Includes remembering past slugs.
- acts_as_sayable - "Rails plugin to provide text2speech functionality over models."
- flash-message-conductor - A simple pattern for managing flash messages in your Ruby on Rails application.
- formtastic - A Rails Form Builder with semantically rich and accessible markup.
A special thanks this month goes to the Rails Rumble team as they made some great suggestions based on what people had used for their applications.
Have any projects to add or want to recommend a project for next month's post? Please leave a comment.
