Bundler 1.3 introduces compatibility with recent major releases in Ruby world – Ruby 2.0, Gems 2.0 and Rails 4.0
CoffeeScript becomes debuggable!
Quote from the official CS site:
CoffeeScript 1.6.1 and above include support for generating source maps, … to show your original source code in the debugger
I think CoffeeScript did next step on the way to be called a language mature enough to be used in production.

Ruby5 episode#350 released
A couple of links from the episode are already listed in this post (Bundler 1.3 and CoffeeScript 1.6.0). Another thing which is definitely worth checking is Postgres Tips. Postgres is very, very capable database management system. In my opinion, before starting to wonder which NoSQL DB is better – MongoDB or CouchDB, just checkout Postgres documentation. Chances are the feature you need is already here!
Ruby Rogues episode #095 released
This episode titled “People and Team Dynamics with Joe O’Brien”.
Simply send your desired image size and Embedly Enhance will automatically resize and optimize them for you
There are some others, I put them into the Github section, see below.
Nettuts+ updates the Recommended Resources page
There are a lot of nice things in this list, indeed. But iaWriter was a “wow” moment for me. I already was writing this post in Mou (nice markdown editor), but switched away to aiWriter immediately! If you will try it out, don’t miss “focus on” feature! Now I wonder is it possible build such “focus” for Sublime?
Interesting Github Repositories
There is nothing new about Octopress. I just finally decided to try it out.
Caution! Don’t use those answers for those non-tech questions in a real job interview!
Officially supported Google APIs client library for Node.js
Easy to use “donuts” type widgets
Ruby Rouges’ Picks:
- mojombo / toml
Another step in evolution of config file languages.
- rweng / jquery-datatables-rails jquery-datatables gem for rails
- nathanl / authority – authorization gem for Rails. Reminds me Cancan, but with more granular API. The best part however, is that Authority is ORM neutral.
That’s all (for today) folks!
