Rails Generating & Scaffolding

Rails' use of strict naming conventions means a lot of core code SHOULD be in the same format whoever writes it? It could be written by a friend, colleague or a computer... it shouldn't matter because the same Rails rules apply to everyone.

This means that Rails can actually do some tasks for you! It can actually build things and write code on your behalf...

Coming from another language like PHP, this can seem like magic.

Automatic Git commit signing with GPG on OSX
View .profile
# In order for gpg to find gpg-agent, gpg-agent must be running, and there must be an env
# variable pointing GPG to the gpg-agent socket. This little script, which must be sourced
# in your shell's init script (ie, .bash_profile, .zshrc, whatever), will either start
# gpg-agent or set up the GPG_AGENT_INFO variable if it's already running.
# Add the following to your shell init to set up gpg-agent automatically for every shell
if [ -f ~/.gnupg/.gpg-agent-info ] && [ -n "$(pgrep gpg-agent)" ]; then

Several demos and usages for ES6 destructuring. Runnable demos and slides about the same topic:
View destructuring.js
// === Arrays
var [a, b] = [1, 2];
console.log(a, b);
//=> 1 2
// Use from functions, only select from pattern
var foo = () => [1, 2, 3];

If you're using SystemJS in the browser, you'll want to update your System config to point at the bundles, if you're not already.

  //use typescript for simple compilation (no typechecking)
