TylerRick / javascript_code.rb
Created Oct 6, 2010
Proc#to_json, JavascriptCode#to_json
View javascript_code.rb
# This allows you to represents a JavaScript function with a proc. When converted to JSON, it will
# automatically wrap the method body with "function(){" and "}" and list as many arguments as you
# had listed in your proc, automatically giving them the names a, b, c, etc.
# This is convenient when you want to create a Ruby hash representating options to be passed to
# a JavaScript method, which you plan to call to_json on when you actually output the method call
# to the web page. If you tried to represent your JavaScript function with a string value in the
# hash, then when you called to_json on the hash, it would in turn call String#to_json, which
# returns an escaped copy of the string surrounded by quotes.

Bootstrap script for chef-solo that installs rvm, ruby, bundler, and chef (within a gemset)
# Actual filename: bootstrap/rvm.erb
# vim: set ft=sh
# This script automatically bootstraps the system with everything it needs to run chef-solo.
# Note: This should only do the absolute minimum necessary to get chef-solo (and your recipes)
# working. All else should be done via chef recipes.
