Hey folks! Welcome to ruby.social! 🎉

I'm hoping this will become a good, friendly community for Ruby-folks to chat and discover new friends. But for that to happen, you need to sign up!

ruby.social -- all are welcome

Furthermore, it's recommended that you install cypress via npm, vendoring it in each project.

Got ten projects? Kiss 7GB of disk space goodbye.

I'm a big believer in system tests, and I front-end developers I know really like Cypress, so this will be interesting to explore: gilesbowkett.com/blog/2020/10/

What's crazy about Cypress, though, is that the Cypress app is 704MB. That's one hell of a development dependency.

interblah.net/two-thoughts-abo - in which I take inspiration from @robbyrussell's latest podcast episode for a couple of thoughts about maintainable software :ruby:

How much more of my disk space must I sacrifice to `node_modules`? All of it? :(

TFW when _thought_ you'd pushed your branch and were waiting for the build results, only to realise after 30 minutes... you didn't.

Hey folks,

The ruby.social domain name is up for renewal soon, and looking at the overall expenses of running this instance, we could _really_ use a few more supporters on Patreon to help cover costs.

If you can spare a couple of bucks, it'd be really helpful!

Super special thanks to the current patrons: @sidekiq @shanecav @passthejoe @MikeG1 and super-supporter @honeybadger :honeybadger:

Code editor poll, because why not, I'm curious!

Feel free to reply with more details if you like!

I decided to create an account on ruby.social, so: hello all!

I had previous mastodon account but nothing really going on there, so I probably won't bother with a proper migration.
