ruby toolbox news

Hey everyone,

I hope you’re well! I added displaying of repo README files to the Ruby Toolbox recently, which will hopefully be useful for quickly evaluating projects more in depth on top of the usual metrics directly on the site. Apart from that and the usual maintenance some topics I have looked into recently are:

Bringing lines-of-code stats to the site so you can have an indication of the size and complexity of the library at a glance. This is the one I hope to ship next

An official command line client that gives you quick access to data served by the recently launched API, including a report on the health status of your dependencies

Looking into options for improving the search, especially the response times

Providing an alternate database dump that excludes historical gem download stats, since they make up the majority of the dump size and make imports very slow, so if you just want some real data to work with it’s become a bit cumbersome at this point

Be safe and stay healthy!

Best, Chris
