Eric Pigeon solved the regexp issue that was blocking bundler-audit 0.6.1. Was missing the `!` character...

FYI will be traveling for work, so expect bundler-audit 0.6.1 to be released on/after Thursday.

Proc#<< might get merged into ruby-trunk. Functional style closure composition! Shweet!

One anti-pattern I'm starting to see with GraphQL, is the temptation of getting all of the data in one request. The problem with that mindset is that some of your associated models do not need to be queried/embedded/retransmitted for each request/response. Ideally one would request the shared data, cache it, and join it on the client-side.

So what have people built using Serverless or FaaS Ruby? I'm curious what the limitations/constraints are.

Also I really wish LXD caught on. I like how it gives you the benefits of both containerization and the familiar structure of a GNU/Linux base system (systemd, crond, /bin, /sbin, etc).

Catching up with 2018. Noticing there's a few variations on a stock ruby app Dockerfile. Most use puma, while some use the passenger base image + nginx. Am I the only one who finds it odd how we've gone back to reverse proxying requests to a ruby web server?

Anyone else see the similarities between Rails' Action Text and Shoes, Processing, or Arduino's light-weight editor? Certainly a nice-to-have user-friendly feature, but not a new idea. had no clue ruby-kafka was using digest-crc. Looks like I'll be spending some time optimizing digest-crc soon.

I heard that GraphQL cannot handle Hashes with arbitrary/dynamic keys. Is this true? Are we starting to hit the upper-limits of GraphQL's flexibility?

Say, what are using for JSON builders in the year 2018? Is there a dry- equivalent?
cinch is an amazing library. Only took a few minutes to slap together a bot; it helps that Twitch's chat API is really just an IRC server. Also has snazzy ANSI logging to boot.

bot = do
configure do |c|
c.server = ""
c.port = 6667
c.nick = "twitch_username_here"
c.password = "oath:..."
c.channels = %w[]

on :message do |m|

could use a REPL like Jupyter Notebook or Matlab. I want to be able to save/load sessions or projects, edit code in my $EDITOR and have it auto-loaded into the session, load/save data from external sources, and have everything saved into a standard project file structure. Something that helps you do one-off tasks, but also generates reusable artifacts that could be converted into gems once the code/data has become mature enough for distribution.

also where have you been all of my life "Delete & re-draft" option?!

This is great news, but puts us on a higher tier of costs in our hosting, so since some folk have asked about it... if you'd like to contribute to the running costs, you can now do so via Patreon:

This is absolutely not required, and getting more Rubyists to join is still the best thing you can do to help, but if you'd like to also throw some gold in the chest, now you can 😄

If you thought Rails was boring, wait till you try Padrino! :P

Of course Ruby's Fixnum is actually a C unsigned integer, with two least-significant-bits reserved to denote it's object ID (3).

It would be nice for data science (and C bindings) to be able to allocate large buffers of native ints and access them directly.

So now that Go, Rust, Crystal and Julia support native types, are people OK with fixed size and unsigned integers? I guess the performance/size is worth the risk of integer overflows/underflows. Is this something Ruby should consider adding?
