I’ve been writing a lot of Ruby code at home lately, and the next Cyberdelia
podcast (when I get around to editing and releasing
the episode) is about Ruby too. Some of this is a matter of circumstances, and
some of it has been a deeper thinking about how I’ve been approaching my
personal software projects.
Earlier today I did a code review and saw my coworker using
to create an empty array. This gives the same return value
as the literal constructor
. But are they the same internally?
This is one of the protocols that I’m kind of surprised isn’t in more
use, by virtue of its simplicity in implementation. RFC 865 is a layer 7
debugging RFC where a socket listens for a TCP or UDP connection, and
then sends a short, arbitrary message.
I’ve been playing a lot with Sinatra lately, and so far I’m pretty
impressed with it. It works wonderfully for small operations, but
there’s a few creature comforts missing, and one of them is
internationalization (i18n for short). Fortunately, it’s possible to
use the ‘i18n’ gem (which is used in Rails) to accomplish this.
