Standup 04/27/2009: GemInstaller case sensitivity; wrapping NamedScopes in class methods
Ask For Help
- GemInstaller can fail to install either gem if it encounters two gems in the repository that have the same name but differ in case. Don’t ever change the name of a gem or Adam Will Find You.
- Wrapping multiple named_scopes in a class method then attempting to compose that into another list of named scopes works most of the time :( If it is the first method in the new chain of named scopes, then it will work, otherwise, not so much (it forgets about any constraints from prior named_scopes). This pattern is best avoided.
- We are pleased to announce the existence of gems.pivotallabs.com, a maintained repository for public Pivotal gems. To see it’s contents try:
gem list --remote --source=http://gems.pivotallabs.com
