There's been an influx of noise accounts here over the last few weeks, so I've updated our rules with a simple section about companies and random accounts: ruby.social/about/more#compani

My motivation is to reduce the amount of weird, random accounts that get created on this instance, to improve the signal-to-noise ratio for the real users.

If you have any thoughts about this, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

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.

@halfbyte @fjfish indeed. What Payola did that was nice was abstract away all of the plumbing so you just had to write a couple of handlers to deal with events (e.g. `customer.subscription.created`). My whole Stripe integration was/is maybe 30 lines tops.

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.

@fjfish @phaedryx what are the benefits of abbreviating at all?

The only justification I can think of in an age of auto-completing editors is where a shorter variable name makes the structure of the logic clearer (i.e. single-line enumerations). Even then, I'd still pick a short word over an abbreviation thought.

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?
