Ruby on Rails 1.1 Reference
Create a rails application
nanoRAILS was down for the past 12h because of a setup change on my host on DreamHost.
Suddenly, the link /usr/local/lib/ruby was changed to point to an incorrect location, so instead of having the ruby libraries under /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8, they would effectively be under /usr/local/lib/ruby/ruby/1.8 :(
Suffice it to say that things don’t work too well after that.
Here’s the question I was faced with today.
If you install a software that is licenced under the GPL license on a server, and let people interact with the software, do you have to make the source available? And furthermore, if you did modify that software, are you obligated to release that software along with the source.
After hours spent in breakpointer struggling to make sense of the output, I figured there had to be a better way to look at a stack trace than what the default output provides:
When you use script/breakpointer, once you have stopped in irb, if you try using print, puts or some other way to display something, your ouput goes to your main rails output, not to irb, which is not quite convenient.
