A day late, but…
We’re re-working some internal Rails plugins. This effort includes a redesign of how those plugins deliver routes to the application.
Look forward to a post from Nathan on designing plugin-provided routes.
A number of Pivots have experimented with using Synergy — often configured with QuickSynergy — as a productivity enhancement tool for pair programming. The basic idea is to have a shared computer set up as a Synergy client of two other, user-driven machines. This allows for collaborative editing in the shared environment as well as individual work, such as reviewing a particular API.
- Simple, bonjour-enabled configuration via an OS X system preferences pane
- Bi-directional capabilities. That is, two machines can be both servers and clients of each other
- Can drag-drop to copy files and folders between machines
- Pasteboard is synchronized between machines
- Pasteboard is synchronized between machines (careful, or you might unintentionally overwrite a copy buffer)
- OS X only
- Closed source
- The one client of two servers setup doesn’t seem to work out right, so only one developer can split of to a “research” machine
- It’s a bit buggy regarding configuration
- Can’t do some of the advanced configuration that Synergy can, e.g. re-mapping keys
