Today I am joined by the wonderful Lynn Elliott to bring you the latest news in the Ruby and Rails communities. Here is a quick roundup of what's new in this episode of the Ruby5 podcast.


Untangle Spaghetti Code With a Simple Change of Perspective


This new blog post from Justin Weiss discusses the refactoring pattern of reversing the caller and callee. Flipping around how you think about the problem can often be just what you need to keep things simple.

Atom is OSS


The guts of the Atom editor are now open source. This is a great move for the editor but the biggest win for the community is in the release of the Atom Shell framework that lets you build desktop applications with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.



Looking for a simple delegation framework that works with Rails' URL helpers? Look no further! The DumbDelegator gem has you covered.



OSXC is a configuration framework for OS X that lets you script the setup of your workstations.

Rails Caching


Wondering how to get started with view caching in Rails? This two part blog post will have you up and running in no time.



The eldritch gem makes concurrent processing in Ruby even easier with a simple DSL to run methods and blocks asynchronously.

So that's it for this episode of Ruby5. If you haven't already, subscribe to the podcast and keep yourself up to date. Thanks for listening!
