useful sinatra template route snippet
View gist:1204454
# use this snippet for routes that are partly dynamic, partly static.
# For example your jquery.js is static. With this route Sinatra will check
# your public dir and if it finds it there, jquery.js will be served.
# if not, the views dir will be searched. If found it's served as compiuled coffee script
# if not you will get a 404. Seems useful to me...
# btw, namelessjohn remined me that checking for the file first is good because then you
# won't create expensive and possibly leaking symbols of files that don't exist.
# also, we set last_modified which is good for caching.

get rid of empty sinatra params
View gist:1230371
# use this line to delete all keys that are empty:
params.delete_if { |k, v| v.empty? }
# now you can simply check if a key exists:
do_something if params[:some_key]

Rubinius: Fixing a failing spec for 1.9 mode. A simple introduction.

Last week I decided to fix some failing specs for Rubinius 1.9 mode. If you haven't done that before continue reading you will be surprised how easy that can be.

To get started you need a working clone of Rubinius. You can find instructions in the docs.

Now let's see what specs are failing. I consult the failing tags which can be found in:


There are many specs still failing so I go through some and find something interesting in:

You can’t perform that action at this time.
