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!

I've been building Flóðgátt, a replacement streaming API server for Mastodon. The goal is to cut RAM usage and make hosting an instance that much cheaper.

So far, we've cut RAM for the streaming server of an empty instance by ~94.2%

The next task is to make sure that lower RAM usage can scale without other issues (e.g., CPU).

To do that, I need a test server with enough connections to see how Flóðgátt performs under load.

That's where y'all come in: can you please follow @codesections ?

Hello! I'm a by trade, and a serial hobbyist. I use in my side project. I would call it a business, but I've yet to be paid for it. I'm interested in prototyping ideas, and in learning best practices!

Some of my serial hobbies include singing, playing drums and guitar, drone racing, rock climbing, knitting, dancing at weddings, running, and visiting breweries!

Sad to hear that @matthewrudy@twitter.com has passed away.

He was a great supporter of the Ruby communities in London, Hong Kong and far beyond.

You'll be missed, Matthew.

Anyone here use a gem/engine to integrate with Stripe billing? I used `payola-payments` in the past, but it's not been updated for a long time.

Hey #ruby folk ... I'm trying to trigger an autoscaler for testing purposes. Anybody have a simple cpu-pegging method handy per chance?

has anyone upgraded a rails 5.x app to rails 6 beta?

I thought the javascript assets were going to be required to be moved to webpacker, but it looks like they still work via asset pipeline

is the change that webpack is the default for new apps, but sprockets will continue working for existing apps?

What version of Ruby is your main project or product running against?

Question. In which namespace `B` is defined?

```ruby
A = Class.new do
B = 1
end
A::B # => ???
B # => ???
```

Hi guys.
Ruby student here.
I just learned of mastodon and wanted to check it out. Never caught on to Twitter. This looks like a nice small group. Looking forward to knowing everyone.

Hi, I'm Jan, also known as halfbyte on the internet. Together with Florian, who's not on the Fediverse, I run Depfu.com, your friendly dependency update robot factory. I'm interested in weird and odd uses of ruby. I occasionally speak at conferences. I co-run the Hamburg Ruby Usergroup.

James Adam boosted

This is quite interesting!
Hey ya'll! I'm learning Ruby from Launch School which is an online school for Software Engineers. Cheers everyone✨

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
