Rant is a flexible build tool. The equivalent to a Makefile for make is the Rantfile, which is actually a valid Ruby script that is read in by the rant command. It currently features automated testing, packaging, and RDoc generation for Ruby applications and libraries, creation of gzipped tar and zip archives on all supported platforms without additional software, recognition of file changes based on MD5 checksums, dependency checking for C/C++ source files (makedepend is not required), and more. It can generate a script tailored to the needs of a specific project, which can be used instead of an Rant installation so that users aren't dependent on Rant.
Ruby Asterisk Gateway Interface (RAGI) is a framework for bridging the Ruby on Rails Web application server environment and Asterisk, the open-source PBX. RAGI eases the development of interactive automated telephony applications such as IVR, call routing, automated call center, and extended IP-PBX functionality by leveraging the productivity of the Ruby on Rails framework. RAGI simplifies the process of creating rich telephony and Web applications with a single common Web application framework, object model, and database backend.
Ruby-UDBM is a Ruby binding for the UPPAAL DBM library. It offers access to the federation type (set of DBMs) and most of its operations. In addition, a graphical viewer is provided to allow users to visualize updates on the fly. The library gives access to systems of constraints where clock constraints can be declared and used as intuitive formulas. This binding is intended to be a research prototyping tool as well as a teaching tool for students learning timed automata.
Facter is a simple cross-platform library for determining basic facts about an operating system, like the operating system name, IP address, or MAC address. It supports multiple mechanisms for resolving a given fact, and these mechanisms can be restricted to only working on specified operating systems or operating system releases.
RubyTree is a simple to use general purpose tree data structure implementation in Ruby. It provides easy access methods for navigating the hierarchy, as well as for accessing the nodes. It also provides ability to marshal the entire tree structure. The library provides a generic tree as well as a binary tree implementation. It is available as a RubyGem or standard Tar/ZIP packages.
The Atom Publishing Protocol framework for Ruby aims to simplify the implementation of Atom Publishing Protocol (APP) support in Web applications. It achieves this by implementing a framework that handles the protocol-level duties for the programmer, while not making any requirements for the site design.
