“If deploy.rb does a require ‘auto_tagger’ and the auto_tagger gem is in the app’s bundle but not the system, running the system cap won’t find the auto_tagger gem. Using bin/cap runs the bundled cap and thus has access to all the gems in the bundle.”
Loofah – http://github.com/flavorjones/loofah is supported by a fellow Pivot and provides fast and good sanitization built on Nokogiri, albeit slightly slower on short strings than brittle regular expressions. It’s in production at several companies.
“Loofah excels at HTML sanitization (XSS prevention). It includes some nice HTML sanitizers, which are based on HTML5lib’s whitelist, so it most likely won’t make your codes less secure.”
pre|central.net has posted their picks for Best Apps of 2009, and they’ve picked both of the apps we developed internally as must-have apps in their categories, with Tweed at the top of the list in the Social Networking category, and Scoop being edged out by The New York Times in the News category. (We will concede that they have a little more experience in the News world than we do. ;-) The AP Mobile app also gets a shout out in the News Category, which some of you know is another app we developed, in this case on behalf of a client.
Thanks to the pre|central folks for picking our apps, and to all our users for installing those apps, and for all your feedback.
