Grammar and Spell Checker for Better English Communication - Ginger Software

Grammar and Spell Checker for Better English Communication - Ginger Software
Ginger Software is developing an array of products that enable mobile devices and computers to understand the intended meaning of natural (human) language input. Ginger Software products are based on an innovative Natural Language Processing (NLP) platform. NLP uses patent-pending technology to decipher the semantic and contextual meaning of text input by comparing it to billions of similar sentences from the Web. Ginger Proofreader, the first product that was released based on the NLP platform, is a free spelling and grammarcheck; it is suitable for both native English speakers and speakers of English as a Second Language (ESL). Ginger Proofreader checks and corrects spellcheck, misused words and grammar mistakes in accordance with the context of the full sentence. Even when a word is spelled correctly, Ginger Proofreader checks its grammar usage to ensure it makes sense in the sentence and, if needed offers alternatives to the word.

Writing Rails-flavored AngularJS When I think about Ruby on Rails and AngularJS in the same codebase, I kind of cringe. After spending more than a year trying to reconcile how Rails plays with Angular, not only have I been unsuccessful, but I have not been satisfied with any of the suggested solutions. There is a ton of material on the numerous Rails hacks you should employ so that Rails and AngularJS feel compatible; however, I’m beginning to wonder whether this problem is being approached from the wrong direction. Instead, how can we hack AngularJS so that it plays nice with Rails? As a Ruby on Rails developer, I want to feel that I’m writing a Rails application. I’m OK with a page refresh when I’m browsing between features.
