[04:00:42] coetry: I just wanted to thank everyone who works on rails for making such an awesome framework that makes it dead simple to create crud apps. That's such an understatement because rails makes it dead simple to make some seriously powerful apps like Twitter and Hulu. I've been hacking around on Clojure and exploring node frameworks and what not, but I created a Hurricane Harvey SOS app in 30 min with rails
[04:01:29] coetry: I'm in Houston and the situation is really bad right now, officials can't get to everyone who needs help and people have been posting pleas for help on facebook, instagram, and twitter. Citizens have been going out in boats and trucks trying to respond to these requests as best as possible
[04:02:37] coetry: That's the app. I scaffolded it in like 5 min and spent a little bit more time styling. It's ugly, its hacky, its simple, but it served a simple purpose. In tough times like this where I can't spend too much time fidgeting with a framework or configuring things. I turned to rails. Thank you all.
[19:28:56] coetry: I have a version mismatch between my spring server and client ( the client is 1.3.6 and the server is 1.3.4 ), I have this deployed on Phusion Passener
[07:43:11] coetry: do you guys see this as a new page for the ruby community and more specifically the rails community?
[07:43:48] coetry: taking the principles of mruby and going even further though, building on that inspiration
[07:44:07] coetry: do you feel the advancements in the web platform can also impact the development of the ruby language and other languages as well?
[20:46:07] coetry: if i want to pass data through something like an instance variable, when i call redirect_to @model, how can i do that?
[20:46:44] coetry: so that in the 'show' template, i can access that information that i'm trying to pass
[21:00:35] coetry: rhizome: i was referring to some extra along with an instance variable, buti found a workaround for my specific problem
[17:39:20] coetry: i wanna call the :asset_path method from the Rails console and am trying to use ActionView::Helpers::AssetUrlHelper.asset_path
[19:39:40] coetry: in my application.css.scss file, if i have changed a property of the body selector, what could possibly prevent it from rendering properly?
[19:40:16] coetry: it remains white, and i'm not sure why its not updating, when the application.css.scss file is the main file that gets rendered
[19:42:00] coetry: rhizome, i can see that its not applying the css rules that I want, im trying to modify a jquery-ui-rails widget
[20:01:03] coetry: mustmodify: i'm assuming you've taken a look at this page already? https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch-rails/blob/master/elasticsearch-model/README.md
[20:01:28] coetry: i'm actually also wetting my feet with Elasticsearch and am trying to get it running, what a coincidence :)
[20:06:13] coetry: its just json, and i think the format of the search query is consistent across all languages and integratinos
[20:06:41] coetry: sorry if that didn't help much :/, i found your github, if i get it working, i'll send you a message or contact you somehow, do you have twitter?
[20:21:38] coetry: the wildcard asterisk is convenient for development/debugging, but definitely inconvient for end users if they have to submit something like that through a form
[20:29:14] coetry: treehug88, if no one is doing it, it might not have that much of a priority or significance on people's minds
[20:32:06] coetry: treehug88, if you can come up with a viable solution, producing a gem would be fantastic :)
[16:27:44] coetry: I have my SECRET_KEY_BASE env variable set, and i verified by entering the `env` command on my terminal. Also in a rails console: ENV['SECRET_KEY_BASE'] seems to work fine, but i'm still getting an error message saying that its not set, which is producing an "incomplete response" when I try to deploy it with passenger :/
[16:31:51] coetry: i was under the empression that passenger defaults to deploying the app in "production", and in my secrets.yml, i have the envrionmental variables set properly
[16:49:32] coetry: is secret_token another random string that i can just generate with `rake secret`?
[16:53:16] coetry: mikecmpbll, ahh interesting, how can i see what passenger has access to, or how can i give it access to global env variables
[14:36:03] coetry: I have a pdf with some screenshots uploaded to dropbox, according to my devise.en.yml file, and the flash message that is set in the controller, im not sure why the resulting message in the browser is not consistent
[05:08:13] coetry: If i assigned a new proc to a variable and i would like to have several procs assigned to variables and feed them through a list which i enumerate and then call inside a block, how may i do so?
[15:38:12] coetry: Can someone please help me with Amazon EC2? I have an instance that i changed the security group to accept all tcp connections from port ranges 0 - 65535, and i have rails serving on 0.0.0.0:3000
[15:58:40] coetry: If i wanted to generate a fresh rails app with haml templates from the beginning, no .erb
[16:08:50] coetry: workmad3, do you think it would be possible by modifying haml and hacking here and there?
[16:10:42] coetry: workmad3, hmmm i see what you're saying. Maybe it would be good then to have .erb for the application layout, just to be able to have that IE situation dealt with, and have .haml templates everywhere else?
[16:11:58] coetry: yeah lol microsoft needs to hop on the the open web and stop making it harder on devs!
[16:12:55] coetry: ok i see, so its just a legacy thing, whether we want our web apps to real older browsers or not
[16:13:22] coetry: personally me as a dev would rather have people upgrade and see them not able to experience a web app as an incentive to upgrade haha
[05:20:00] coetry: I'm trying to import foundation and it doesn't seem to be overriding any variables
[15:59:07] coetry: I have bundled a few gems but the generators for them are not working and i'm not sure
[16:16:57] coetry: that shows the payola is installed and bundled, this same problem happens with the figaro gem
[16:21:44] coetry: yup its working, 'payola-payments', what a careless mistake, although i did have the same problem with the figaro gem!
[20:12:40] coetry: I'm not sure why I'm getting the message "rollback transaction" when i'm trying to create a new model and persist it into the database?
[07:05:02] coetry: can someone please help me understand what's going on here?, clearly 'webcomponentsjs/webcomponentsjs', is under /vender/assets/components
[01:53:59] coetry: If i'm trying to provide a link to an html file that is located in vendor/assets/components/, how can i reference that in an href?
[01:54:39] coetry: I tried, <link rel="import" href="/assets/core-header-panel/core-header-panel.html">
[01:48:26] coetry: If I have thousands of files that I plan on serving from my rails app, is it advisable to just store the directories in the /public directory?
[01:48:52] coetry: Or are there better solutions where I can reference them and store their locations, names, and metadata in a db
[06:38:05] coetry: If I wanted to convert a hash to a json via Hash.to_json and then have that data saved as a "file.json" on disk, what should I do?
[07:01:41] coetry: how do i stop ruby from blocking or stopping execution when it runs into an error?
[07:01:56] coetry: such as if it hits a nil class, can't i have it continue and just skip that error?
[07:31:43] coetry: I keep getting this error and I simply don't understand why..its not happening to other files
[07:31:46] coetry: spider.rb:36:in `write': No such file or directory @ rb_sysopen - ISLAMIC BANKS ??? After 9/11.json (Errno::ENOENT)
[18:52:34] coetry: Excuse my ignorance of the regex arts and string wizardry, but how many I get only the file name portion from this string?
[18:22:50] coetry: I have haml-rails installed and all my .erbs have been converted, except for my manifest for web components, could that by a reason my components are not rendering properly?
[18:26:18] coetry: If I want to trim all that extra whitespace in the middle, whats the best way to do that?
[22:17:26] coetry: and you can always use blogs as a foundation to do some really cool stuff, it doesn't have to be conventional at all
[02:46:59] coetry: Whats the difference between =code and = code for haml files? Such as in this one here:
[02:47:02] coetry: https://github.com/openmosix/rubygems-search/blob/master/app/views/gems/index.html.haml
[22:02:25] coetry: If there is an SDK for a peice of software that exposes a C++ SDK, and I don't know C++, is there a way to bind that into a ruby API?
[22:02:57] coetry: i know its not that trivial, but what are some projects that make this easier, can someone point me in the right direction?
[19:21:43] coetry: Its possible to have something like refinerycms which uses mysql for its models to be used alongside the mongoid gem, which I can use in a seperate model correct? So pages will be loaded using ActiveRecord, while I can pass in my mongodb resources to those views and there would be no conflict, correct?
[19:18:26] coetry: If I want to subclass something from an engine, where would be the best place to store that class? In this case, the original class definition is in the engine's directory app/presenters
