Interesting Things

  • Some projects are playing with the Mocha mocking framework. From their site:

    Mocha is a library for mocking and stubbing using a syntax like that of JMock, and SchMock. Most commonly Mocha is used in conjunction with Test::Unit, but it can be used in other contexts.

  • Our own Nathan Sobo has released Treetop 0.1.0:

    Treetop is a Ruby-based DSL for text parsing and interpretation. It facilitates an extension of the object-oriented paradigm called syntax-oriented programming.

  • Jeff from Inveneo presented us with a tech-talk recently about the technology they are bringing to rural and remote communities throughout the world. Fascinating stuff. A group here has volunteered to help write some software if needed.

Ask for Help

  • “Are there problems getting Rspec mocks to ‘reset’ for each spec run?” Mocks persist across test/spec runs for class methods, so watch out.
  • “My routes arn’t working…” Remember that Rails routes are positional, which means that they are matched top-to-bottom; changing the position seemed to be the fix in this case.
