Rails myths

November 16, 2008

DHH has written series of posts about Rails myths. I thought it would be good to share the links.

So create

Why the lucky stiff on Twitter

when you don't create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. your tastes only narrow & exclude people. so create.

Rails moved to Git

April 04, 2008

It is now official that Rails is moving to Git. I am more happy because I love both Git and Rails. From last couple of months Git became my favourite source control tool. I was so much excited about it that I read most articles/posts/manuals about it for last some months, I gave a BarCamp presentation on it. I have been using it lot, for my personal side-projects.

Some days ago, I forked koz-rails(Rails repo git mirror) repository, considering that I would start hacking Rails source. I had no idea that Rails would officially move to Git that time. I had read some posts of Koz that it is not that easy to start using Git to manage Rails source. But now after reading DHHs announcement post, I am happy.

The good thing is that it will use GitHub (awesome Git repository hosting site). I am in love with GitHub since I heard about it. I think, I am one of the earlier users of GitHub and that makes it and me special that Rails is using GitHub.

Even DHH himself has written good words about Git and GitHub. Chris also wrote some posts related to this announcement.

I always find that like minded people like similar things and it continues. I also noticed that whatever I like becomes Hit and popular(oh yeah). I think I have some little sense to predict about any app and its future. I think I can definitely define product features for a successful app. I think I also understand the market and what people want and expect. This is why I am more eager to develop my side projects.

Update 12 April, 08: You could visit Rails repository at http://github.com/rails/rails/tree./

For cloning do


git clone git://github.com/rails/rails.git

My fork for Rails is at http://github.com/anildigital/rails/tree

GitHub - My Kind of Service

March 06, 2008

Recently I got interested in using Git. I like it too much. I already have some Git repositories on my Slicehost server. From last month, I am using a Git repository hosting service GitHub.com. I have become a fan of this service. Now I have two homes for my projects’ repositories, one is GitHub and other on my Slicehost server.

It always felt good to commit changes locally, push them to server with one command. Git added that geeky-ness to my coding. I came to know about GitHub when I read this post. Since then, I was waiting for its launch and one good day, I got beta invite for GitHub from Chris.

GitHub brings a social aspect into play. GitHub is kind of social network for developers with codes. I almost felt it when I forked a repository first time.

Git has very nice features. Some of which I like the most are forking, sending pull requests, nice UI of repository browser, news feeds, follow, hCard-ed profiles and simple project wikis etc. I think Git adoption by developers is very near. Fantastic tool like GitHub is making it happen. I am very happy to be early adopter of this service.

I know, this is the kind of app/service which is really benefiting me than any-other as it is helping for coding and improving it. I think it is one of the best things on internets

Update: Oh yeah, I have a couple github invites if anyone wants them.
