As you may know, now you can keep up with the Edge Rails with iPhone or Kindle, every time, everywhere!
Triglav http://github.com/kentaro/triglav By the way, I’ve been working on development of a tool, named Triglav, these months. It’s kind of a server management tool.
tage Still at alpha s It looks like that. Just so common web application, though. Triglav has minimalistic features providing API set to retrieve hosts information. It copes with users’ complicated demands with loose-coupled architecture. Of course, it’s written in the Edge Rails.
ActionController::Live, one of the killer features of Rails 4, is suitable for Server-Sent Events. I combined it with the new Queue API and Redis. In that way, we can easily create such a realtime application using Rails. It’s very exciting!
Living on the Edge Living on the Edge Rails is harder than you might imagine ;) You’ll often get stuck into various problems around Rails eco-system.
When I started developing Triglav, there were many bugs around sprockets. This picture shows my pull request to sass-rails.
I fixed also less-rails along with the new sprockets.
This is to fix turbolinks. It didn’t work with ActionController::Live.
At a certain time, Ruby 2.0.0 broke the backward compatibility with Bundler. So, I sent a pull request that made Rails 4 depend on the new Bundler.

These are highly recommendable books for those who want to know more about Rails. (The former book explains the Rails internal) (The latter gives us how to upgrade our existing applications to Rails 4) Both books are must-read.
l found Rails is developed in a very social way. I’m convinced that working with the Edge Rails is one of the fastest way to do social coding.
RECAP • Living on the Edge Rails is fun and good lesson • Rails 4 is really promising and exciting • Try Rails 4 as soon as possible! Recap.
