I was pairing with a colleague who uses rubymine, and while debugging a background resque task, he saw how I clumsily start a `bundle console` to recreate the worker picking jobs from redis, he casually commented "In rubymine you just put a breakpoint there and done!"
I might give it a spin too, after i've finished playing in emacs
I recently switched to Doom Emacs(https://github.com/hlissner/doom-emacs) after 4+years of Vim. It's super fun to write small functions to try to get the keyboard shortcuts to do just the thing I need (struggled with making "SPC t n" run rspec asynchronously for the current line, showing the output on a side panel, and keeping the cursor in place.)
I feel my productivity tanked a bit, but hey, I'm enjoying it and my team hasn't noticed that I'm responding slower yet.
Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.
Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.
*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*
1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
This talk wonderfully informative and perceptive; i learnt quite a number of things beyond the rationale of design choices in Golang. I consider myself quite new to programming, ymmv: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmZNaUcwBt4
