HTML source no longer sore July 28, 2008

Have you ever found yourself saying, _damn I wish I knew what X was, when debugging an application?

SimplyTabby is a plugin to embed application and system information as comments, into the HTML source of a page. Sensitive information can be “hidden”, by encrypting the output, which can easily be recovered via a rake task.

The project is hosted at GitHubhttp://github.com/retr0h/simply_tabby/tree/master

Further information can be found in the README.

My good buddy Doug Mciness wrote a rake task to manage and install cronjobs. We have it hooked into our Capistrano deployments, which allows for uber simple cron management. I added a few modifications such as, erb’ed raketab templates, and global/system specific crontabs.

It’s up on GitHubhttp://github.com/latimes/craken/tree/master

In the process of determining if these rakefiles should be yaml instead, would probably be the “more railsy rails way” of doing it.
