Since last week was Thanksgiving here in the States, here’s a double-whammy: everything that happened last week and everything that’s happened this week, in one blog post!
The big deal with suspenders, our app app, is that version 0.3.2 is officially out! Since 0.3.1 on October 28th we’ve added an email validator, raised email delivery errors in the development environment, added Heroku support (try the
--heroku flag), and switched to bundler for the gem itself.
While Dan Croak (croaky) was releasing 0.3.2 (40690ae) he also made sure to document the
--clearance flags (02a8bb0). Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw) added a missing
bundler/setup to the
Rakefile, tying everything together neatly (d09ee5b).
Above I mentioned how Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw) added
bundler/setup to the
Rakefile of suspenders. He also did it to shoulda-matchers (9d79124), shoulda (8054563), high_voltage (ec656e1), bourne (9d21677), flutie (7863d14), shoulda-context (75a8384), factory_girl_rails (797a985), and pacecar of all things (fb972c0).
Version 1.2.0 of bourbon is out, bringing more Sass mixins into your life. Phil LaPier (plapier) added support for the CSS3
appearance (e888e0a) and
background-size (4588c5c) properties, and added
$verdana variables (4ba1cff). He also updated the docs to reflect this (d23064b), cleaned up some warnings (99946bb), and made the release (93beb25).
The past two weeks saw an improvement for gem authors in paperclip: Mike Burns (mike-burns) removed the
Paperclip::Options object, replacing it with a
Hash. Any option you pass to
has_attached_file is thus available to your underlying Paperclip extension without any extra work and with a canonical interface (5a7769b).
Prem Sichanugrist (sikachu) continued on his quest for having Paperclip work on CI with Rubinius; he tried removing the generated
rbc files so the CI server will generate them every time (2c08152).
In the past two weeks factory_girl has seen three releases: 2.3.0 (85d4735, 2fdabdb, and 89b9a82), 2.3.1 (e15ae8d), and 2.3.2 (17eacf0). Joshua Clayton (joshuaclayton) has been hard at work, you see.
As a result, dynamic attributes and callbacks in traits are called in the right order, closing #247 (1eb7e1b and 65e5e25). Also, traits can be added to factories dynamically, when creating an object (442ba18). For example, if you have an
:admin trait you can make an admin user on the fly with
FactoryGirl.create(:user, :admin, :name => "Frank Blank").
The other pile of commits from Josh are all internal refactorings. Things like removing the
Proxy#associate method in place of using
Proxy#set everywhere (3ed2f62, f47c03c, and d3a7b7e), cleaning up the
require statements (9472a14), consolidating and documenting all exceptions in the
FactoryGirl class (c46c090), handling nil blocks when running a factory (2bf5cea) and when creating it in general (86f971b), delaying the sorting of attributes until the last minute by using a lighter-weight array instead of hash (d563b94), making bold claims about inheritance that some blog post authors disagree with (557cce6), moving
Proxy::Stub#next_id into the private namespace (0c31b6e), taking an ignored argument to a block so some versions of Ruby don’t complain (c93dea5), defaulting the creation method to save instead of
nil (5bbbcb9), singularizing
Attribute#alias_for? (f247968), using his beloved Null Object pattern to reduce some conditionals (fba404a and b339c8f), adding a common
#to_proc method across all attributes and then invoking methods with
# instead of
#call (fba6f33 and 3282eea), straight-up removing dead code from the
AttributeList (56a6f67), and passing overrides through to the runner class (5fc57da).
Gotta break a lot of eggs to make an omelette. Speaking of, Gabe found a broken
version.rb and fixed it (1e47af0).
Another doc week for clearance where Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw) observed that we test it against Rails 3.1.0 (f7c5e3b) and Matthew Burket (Mab879) noted that you must migrate the database before running
rake, when testing (39a6ac5 and 8b9e89b).
New features in our Braintree fake object, appropriately named fake_braintree! Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw) added support for
FakeBraintree.generated_transaction (d1bbcb7, 917a235, 4fc470d, and 4cb5cb0),
Braintree::Subscription.update (fab3c92), and
Braintree::Customer.delete (c2aa516). Joe Ferris (jferris) started work on add-ons (312cfac).
Gabe also did some lovely documenting; now you can learn about how to use this in Cucumber (c163c4d), how to avoid calling
FakeBraintree.activate (dff3e51), whether the build is broken (499cb05 and 1b1a532), and what the difference is between declining and verifying a card (625993a). Additionally the
Subscription class was refactored (3ed090e), the tests were made more explicit (a23a61c), and the tests pass (0a12182).
