I am very proud to announce a brand new, incredibly cool Ruby gem: NoneSuch. Here’s a short video to introduce it.
UPDATE: Got a NoneSuch success story? A disastrous failure story? Enter the contest and win a ticket to Day Camp 4 Developers 2!
Like this video? Like Ruby? I’m writing an eBook about exceptions and failure handling in Ruby. Sign up for early access!
Indispensable. I would like to request a follow up that explains how you made this screencast.
How is the test coverage?
My firstborn child shall be named NoneSuch!
I predict great things for him… he will grow up to be a duke, or perhaps a king!
I've tried it and it doesn't scale. Have you considered porting it to C?
Run it in the cloud and all of your scaling issues will magically disappear. I find about 500 EC2 instances per customer works nicely.
I get NoneSuchException on line 4. Any idea of what may not be happening?
No results found for that query.
you promised cat pictures 🙁
Yes, that is a known bug which will be addressed in the NoneSuch 2: “Electric Boogaloo” release.
Is it compatible with vapor.js?
I can't watch the video on my iPhone. Is there some sort of gem I can install?
It's hosted at a special gem repository at example.org which can only be accessed via RFC1149 protocol.
Thanks… I am using it on my production machines…..
Terrific! Mind you, I've been receiving reports that it sometimes mails all of your internal emails to wikileaks, but I'm calling that a feature.
Hil-ari-ous – how many times have we sat through presentations like this?
Personally, I just can't get enough gem installation instructions.
I've forked it and just renamed it to ActiveNoneSuch, but I also have a plugin called acts_as_none_such
It had better monkey-patch a half-dozen crucial Rails methods to behave in subtly incorrect ways!
I wrote docs for Nonesuch.
here they are:
Also works great with rubinus.
I just released version 0.0.2 which completely breaks backward-compatibility. All your docs and tests are out of date.
fix is quick,
just change line 1 of docs to
and line 1 of tests to
also I added jruby support in my fork.
I also forked it and trying hard to find out bugs. I'll let you know as soon as i find_out
This was painfully funny… I am still laughing and crying! 😀
I'm really disappointed. NoneSuch presentation barely uses any buzzwords. What about XML, XSLT, Virtualization, SEO, SQLServer, .NET? What? It only works with ruby? But that's not even a “real” language. You know all the cool words that cool kids in HR Department know?
On a side note. I know a manger who makes weekly presentations at the meetings, and all he does is read the Word file, that he has on the projector and emails to everyone the day before the meeting, out loud for about 20 to 30 minutes. That file barely has any text – mostly numbers, and graphs. It takes about 5 mins to scan through all of it. Every damn week.
Hi just letting you know there’s an issue with NoneSuch and Rails 3.1.
Something with the asset pipeline.
Is it thread safe? I hope so…
