Posted at 14:29 | 17 Jul. 2019
Half-a-decade-ago this week famous Rubyist Steve Klabnik put together a fantastic guide for building a Rubygem. If you've built many gems or never ventured into this territory before, it really is a fantastic read.
Paul Adams, then columnist for webmonkey (if you remember that!), walks us through setting up a Ruby on Rails application this week in 2005. Once in a while we give you a really good peek into the past, this article does not disappoint!
I'm sure you've heard about the benefits of using Rails engines to extend your Rails superpowers and also how well they mesh with Rails gem development. Enjoy this fantastic guide that came out this week in 2006 on just how to get it done.
Remember when we shared that 'Ruby Shootout' article about a month ago? Well, here was a July 2010 version, showing how the various Rubies on different hardware compared agains each other. Neat!
