What’s Hot on Github – September 2008
What's Hot on Github is a monthly post highlighting new and/or interesting projects 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:
- Dust - Tool for finding unused or useless code
- can_search - Chain named scopes in a search query
- One inch punch - Time tracking with bash
- Cardjour - Share your vCard over bonjour
- view_specify - Auto-generate RSpec view specs by interrogating your existing views
- Spree - An open-source e-commerce application
- randexp - Generate random data from a Regular Expression
- active_shipping - Shipping extensions for active_merchant
- Webby - A lightweight and flexible website management system
- Shinmun - A small and beautiful blogging engine
Full disclosure: I (Zach) work with the guys who wrote view_specify and we've worked with the people responsible for active_shipping and one_inch_punch.
Have any projects to add or want to recommend a project for next month's post? Please leave a comment.
