  • 03/08 11:34:54 Deanna: yeah, 70% off! Ruby methods are getting more expensive all the time, so I appreciate the discount

  • 03/08 14:01:52 Raymond: Side note: enumerable methods will usually return an enumerable automatically if you don't pass a block

    bytes.each_with_index.map do |value, index|
    is equivalent to
    bytes.enum_for(:each_with_index).map do |value, index|

  • 03/08 14:02:38 Raymond: you can add an index to any enumerable this way

    bytes.each.with_index.map do |value, index|

  • 03/12 11:51:43 Kyra: I’m putting the finishing touches on a Code Climate engine for haml_lint. f you know of any OSS projects that use Haml, please let me know! Or, if you have the opportunity to run it on a closed-source project, please let me know the results. The engine is at: https://github.com/michaelherold/codeclimate-haml_lint

    Thanks in advance. heart

  • 03/23 11:46:05 Raymond: Last time I tried 2.4, the Fixnum/Bigdecimal merge was still causing grief. Is that getting better?
