ruby toolbox news
As mentioned in the last update I’ve been working on bringing gem dependencies to the Ruby Toolbox project pages, and I’m happy to say that via this pull request they have now been launched. You can find them on each project page, for example take a look at the http gem over here.
A specialty of this feature is that right next to the dependency you can also find the corresponding project health indicators so if you’re looking at a library you can also see an indication of the status of it’s dependencies as well.
Now that this is out of the door, in June I want to spend a bit of time on maintenance of the data syncing mechanisms as they haven’t received much attention apart from being built at some point and are causing some noise for example when API rate limits are hit.
Stay safe and healthy and until next time!
