Ubiquity meets RubyURL

Posted by Wed, 03 Sep 2008 01:41:00 GMT

Alex Malinovich decided to take some time this afternoon to write a Ubiquity command for RubyURL using the new RubyURL API. You can take a look at Alex’s Ubiquity code for RubyURL. He’s taking advantage of the JSON support that I added to RubyURL this weekend and JQuery. Be sure to read Alex’s blog post, which includes a screencast! =)

Also! We added this to RubyURL so that if you have Ubiquity installed, you’ll be presented with the following the next time you visit: http://rubyurl.com.

RubyURL ยป Keep it short (and sweet)

Things (in the Rails world) You Don't Yet Understand

Posted by Tue, 25 Mar 2008 15:12:00 GMT

This is inspired by a recent post by Seth Godin titled, Things you don’t understand, where he shared a list of things that he probably could understand if he put your mind to it, but doesn’t. I decided to post a list of five (5) things in response within the context of Ruby/Rails.

I’m really interested in various things but am really unable to prioritize them high enough to spend the time to understand them.

  • RSpec User Stories
  • Using Selenium with RSpec
  • JQuery (Graeme speaks highly of it)
  • JSSpec (BDD for Javascript)
  • Using the Google Charts API with Rails

What about you? What’s your list of things that you’d like to understand more about?
