rubylang.info: A Solid 3rd Party Attempt at a Site for Ruby

Chris Ledet noticed the recent drama about the cruftiness of Ruby's official ruby-lang.org site and immediately set to work on his own attempt. It's called rubylang.info and it's an impressive attempt in such a short time. Does it just splinter efforts or does it continue a proud tradition of reinvention in the Ruby community? We'll see!

Eh...impressive? O_ogrimen - August 06, 2011 16:37
Not bad at all - it'd be nice to involve the community more however, and make it easier to contribute and update. Perhaps something like a public Jekyll repo on github that anyone can fork and submit pull requests back to. It'd go a fair bit further in helping keep the site maintained and up to date.sgrove - August 06, 2011 17:05
@sgrove, that's what rubylang.info is. It's open source and people already have contributed to the site.

See the source code on Github.Chris Ledet - August 06, 2011 17:26
It's a good idea but it's not "solid" yet. The "news" and "community" pages are notably still absent. There are a large gaps to fill.

That said, let's be about it.

And, @peterc, how about contributing there too?elight - August 06, 2011 20:35
@peterc It looks good, but it's not solid. That site is missing most all of the content from http://www.ruby-lang.org and is English only.

I have already converted all of http://www.ruby-lang.org/ (https://github.com/postmodern/www.ruby-lang.org) to Markdown and will be working with jd from the Ruby Visual Identity Team to merge it with their new Jekyll port (http://rubyforge.org/pipermail/vit-core/2011-August/003651.html).postmodern - August 06, 2011 23:11
@Chris did an awesome job. Ruby isn't slow as well as its community.sleeptillseven - August 08, 2011 07:30
Meh. IMO, fix the root problem, and work towards getting the original site better participation. Fighting over which site is the official/best one will tarnish Ruby's professional appeal.Anonymous Coward - August 09, 2011 19:47
When it became clear Coach Factory Online about midnight that President Barack Obama was safely on Louis Vuitton Belt the way to re-election, a handful of cranky and Coach Outlet Store inebriated Republican donors wandered about Gucci Belt Romney's election night headquarters, angrily demanding that the Coach Factory Outlet Online giant television screens inside the ballroom be switched from CNN Coach Factory Store to Fox News, where Republican strategist Karl Rove was Coach Factory Online making frantic, face-saving pronouncements about Coach Factory Outlet how Ohio was not yet lost.But the signs of Coach Outlet Online desperation inside the Boston Convention and Coach Bags Outlet Exhibition Center on Tuesday night were symptomatic of a Republican Party Coach Factory Online now standing at a crossroads, with not much track in sight.Romney lost Coach Factory Outlet Online embarrassingly among young people, African-Americans and Hispanics, a brutal Coach Outlet Online reminder for Republicans that their party is ideologically out of tune with Coach Factory Outlet fast-growing segments of the population.Obama crushed Romney among Hispanic Hermes Belt voters by a whopping 44 points, a margin of victory that Coach Factory Online likely propelled the president to victories in Nevada, Colorado and possibly Florida.yaya - November 09, 2012 01:27
