I recently upgraded the OS on my Macbook Pro 13' to Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8). As a Ruby on Rails developer, supporting many environments is a must, and the biological and technological diversity of our clients require a plethora of tools to be installed and operational on my Macbook.
Anywho I found that this guide was helpful with the upgrade:
At reInteractive we use Git Flow for all our projects.
But with lots of branches comes a problem. What happens when you have migrations that are branch specific? If you have used branching a lot on an in development Rails application, you are sure to have run into the problem of changing branches and having an inconsistent database state against your code.
We use Amazon S3 on almost every project we work on, and this usually means that we end up needing to create temporary buckets for use on staging or demo sites.
Obviously, we don't want to be reusing the same access key and secret key on every staging and development site, even if they are temporary. Instead we create a separate key pair for each.
We've recently been working on increasing the integration test coverage for a client app that is very form heavy. Eventually a lot of the forms on this application are going to be redesigned and restructured but before we get started on a big backend refactor we wanted to make sure the frontend coverage is up to scratch.
Typically, the best way to do this is to write Capybara based request specs. This works well but with big forms, it can get a bit unwieldy with a lot of copy and paste between tests. Worse, if your forms are bound to change going back over all the tests and changing CSS locators or Capybara method calls is a bit of a pain.
