It’s great to hear that you want to contribute to open source! I had dreams of
contributing to Rails itself and maybe even become a regular contributor.
However, the framework code itself was completely overwhelming to me as someone
class Iterator < Enumerator
def initialize(object, &iterate)
super() do |y|
y << object
loop { y << object = iterate[object] }
namespace :assets do
task :environment do

Object.instance_variable_set(:@foo, "foo")
o =
o.instance_variable_set(:@foo, "foo")
p o.__id__ # => 2002

AARON: So test unit… test in Ruby… test unit use mini tests. It’s a subclass — like it’s actually subclass of mini test. So, all I really did was just change Rails’… so Rails provides a test class like active support test case. …did change super, the class mini test and activate mini test spec is just a sub class of mini test test case. So, all I did was change active support’s class to sub class for main test spec. So it’s not like I mean, everything is completely backwards compatible — you just get spec’ing for free basically.
