A Retrospective on Ruby in 2015

Thanks to all of SitePoint’s peer reviewers for making SitePoint content the best it can be! We’ve come to the end of 2015, which was a big year in Ruby. I thought it’d be a hoot to go back and look at some of the epics (major themes) of the year and the stories that comprised them. Kind of like a Agile process retrospective where I’m treating 2015 as a set of sprints and seeing how we did. In order to play out this contrived idea all the way, I will need to define the epics. Improve the languageGrow the communityKeep up with the rest of the programming world Those are the epics I’ve defined. Finally, any retrospective worth its weight in gems needs to look at what didn’t work. Improve the Language Ruby Ruby 2.2 was released about a year ago, but I am going to include it in this year’s backlog. 2.2 added many things to the language, as the following stories attest: Battle of the Year.

Preface A few days ago we started our first real all-MongoDB project at Nautilus6.

Emphasized Insanity - Creating a Rails authentication system on Mongoid - Part 1

Up until now we used Mongo only on small time projects, ones that hardly required any data storage at all so this is practically the first real project that we will try (and hopefully succeed) to deploy with Mongo as the data layer. Since we use Rails on this project (Duh) we had to choose between the existing MongoDB adapters for rails: MongoMapper – Which is pretty slick, has some plugin support but also replicates some of the familiar ActiveRecord functionality like: Dirty Attributes, Dynamic finders and magic timestamp attributes. Mongoid – the new child, missing some features from MM (dirty attributes, dynamic finders for example) but does cover some ActiveRecord wonders MM doesn’t: Versioning, named scopes and better validation options.

You were probably wondering how it is you send email using Ruby on Rails. Here’s how you create an automated email system that sends a confirmation email to each new user that registers to your app: 1. First off, in bash, you must generate your mailer, which uses the Rails generate command (pretty much the same way you generate a controller or a model).

Rails gives a developer a lot of support, but it isn’t always clear exactly what’s going on under the covers.

GET and POST Parameter parsing in Rails

One area where I’ve had a bit of frustration is trying to understand exactly what Rails is doing for me when it parses my querystring. Somehow it knows that the querystring cart[items][]=5&cart[items][]=6 should result in an object that looks like: { "cart" => { "items" => [ "5", "6" ] } }.

Ruby on Rails Cheat Sheet

The Ruby On Rails cheat sheet is designed to be printed on an A4 sheet of paper and live by a developers desk, to make life a bit easier. A description of what is on the cheat sheet follows, or if you are impatient, you can go straight to the full size Ruby On Rails cheat sheet. I am no expert in Ruby, On Rails or off, so to ensure this cheat sheet was as useful as possible, I pestered the very helpful Amy Hoy of (24)Slash7 and David Heinemeier Hansson of Loud Thinking into giving me a hand.

Thanks, both of you - I appreciate it. In the same vein, though the cheat sheet has been checked there is a chance there is the occasional typo - if anybody spots a mistake (or something that could be worded better) please let me know.
