Links from last night’s RubyCork meetup

Here’s a quick selection of links from last night’s RubyCork meetup:

  • Schema_plus: A very nice gem that let’s you create indices within create_table migration
  • jsRoutes incredibly useful gem which bring your Rails routes into your Javascript. Solves a big pain in modern rails apps.
  • SelfControl for helping you to focus without distracting news sites/blogs etc.
  • Pundit as a modern (and Rails4/Ruby2.0 compatible) alternative to CanCan
  • FFI for talking to C libraries from Ruby
  • RubyTapas for short videos (including some about FFI)

Great discussions were had! Come and join us next month :-)
