brentd/xray-rails · GitHub
"Xray is the missing link between the browser and your app code. Press cmd+shift+x (Mac) or ctrl+shift+x to reveal an overlay of what files are powering your UI - click anything to open the associated file in your editor." A lifesaver, if only for working with other people's code.

100hz/rails-settings - GitHub
I've used the Settings plugin a lot, but it's very old and dusty. This is a nice fork of it, ported to Rails 3, and saved for future reference.

amatsuda/kaminari - GitHub
"A Scope & Engine based, clean, powerful, customizable and sophisticated paginator for Rails 3." Looks interesting; neatly designed, it seems, and will_paginate's refusal to get to a final 3.0 release has always been frustrating. Might try this out.

michaeldv's awesome_print at master - GitHub
"Awesome Print is Ruby library that pretty prints Ruby objects in full color exposing their internal structure with proper indentation." Pretty, and really, really useful (well, for me, anyway).

Gem Building is Defunct - GitHub
"...it’s been a week and we’ve decided to not bring back the gem builder. It was a fun experiment but Jeweler and Gemcutter combined make it ridiculously simple to publish a gem. The gem builder use case (fork a project, make a change, publish a gem, install it) is now easier than ever using these tools." Which is all very nice, but a bit of a PITA for anyone who'd been depending on this. Still: gems.github.com will serve for another year.

javan's whenever at master - GitHub
"Whenever is a Ruby gem that provides a clear syntax for defining cron jobs. It outputs valid cron syntax and can even write your crontab file for you. It is designed to work well with Rails applications and can be deployed with Capistrano. Whenever works fine independently as well." Pretty DSL for generating crontab in a rubyish manner.

james's custodian at master - GitHub
Custodian is the Ruby gem for accessing the Guardian Open Platform Content API that James Darling, Kalv Sandhu, and I (although my contribution was minor) built. There's a Google Code link to it, but I'd imagine the github version is where the action will be.

rubyist's aasm at master - GitHub
AASM is "a library for adding finite state machines to Ruby classes. AASM started as the acts_as_state_machine plugin but has evolved into a more generic library that no longer targets only ActiveRecord models." And as a result, I might be using it a bit.

FeedTools
"FeedTools is a simple Ruby library for handling rss, atom, and cdf parsing, generation, and translation as well as caching. It attempts to adhere to Postel’s law—i.e. a liberal parsing and conservative generation policy." Wasn't aware of this until now, remarkably.

Simplistic Complexity » Jeez People, Stop Fretting Over Installing RMagick
"Rmagick. It sucks, I know. We all hate it. But you have apps that depend on it and haven't changed that yet. So you need it installed for development. And you hate installing it." But, of course, there's a shortcut. It is linked here.

It's an HTTParty and Everyone Is Invited! // RailsTips.org by John Nunemaker
"The other day I thought, wouldn’t it be nice if that pattern were wrapped up as a present for me (and others) to use? The answer is yes and it is named HTTParty." This is total awesome. Now I want to do more webservices hacks.

Webby :: Home
"Webby is a fantastic little website management system. It would be called a content management system if it were a bigger kid. But, it’s just a runt with a special knack for transforming text." A nice idea for simpler, single-user sites.
