So you have a Ruby project and you practice TDD. Now to not make it too hard on yourself to run your test suite every single step of the way your using guard to speed up your process. Good for you and it should make testing as fun as it could be.
Now as I’ve been moving from project to project I’ve seen different practices when it comes to using guard. Some good, some bad but all beneficial for different reasons. What I did find if most projects is that the Guardfile is shared by putting it in the repository of the project. Now I’m wondering, is that a good practice?
In the first day’s of June I went back to Amsterdam because one of my friends was one of the organizers of the 2012 European Ruby conference. Euruko is one of those pleasantly strange conferences that we have in the Ruby community. Single track, stunning location and interesting speakers make for a good conference spread over two days and some nights.
I know it does not always work like this. But I always find myself in situations where I have different people on different operating systems working on the same project. This has been the case for me several times. I am always open for the idea of developing on different platforms, maybe I’m a bit of a free-choice nut… Anyways! There have always been issues with gems that can only be used for specific platforms. How do you solve this problem!?
