The All New RubyFlow for 2015

RubyFlow began with this post from April 2008 as a way for people to submit links to me for Ruby Inside. It quickly became more than that, though, and has kept me informed for Ruby Weekly even while Ruby Inside has quietly died.

But.. it has been showing its age with an old design, spam, and generally being a mess. I got sick of it and have rebuilt the site from scratch. There are some key changes:

  • Now works great on iPhones and so forth. Even Hacker News can’t claim that.
  • All new design
  • User logins are now handled via GitHub. We all use it, after all.
  • User profiles might come back. They’re still behind the scenes but they’ve not been hooked up yet. We’ll be able to join your “new” account to your old one when the time is right.
  • The code behind the new site is going to be properly open sourced for your use soon, unlike the weird pseudo-official versions of the old site that were floating around

I can’t think of anything else for now, so feel free to ask me questions, scream at me, and throw general banter around in the comments. Ta!


Awesome Job, Peter! Thanks for all your hard work on this!

Thanks! I still have some work to do ops-wise it seems. Heroku occasionally throws “SSL connection has been closed unexpectedly” errors my way. Maybe this is their way of saying to pay $50/month instead of $9/month :-D

Love it! Thanks Peter for all the energy and passion you put in this.

RubyFlow is a cornerstone of the Rails community. Thanks for the efforts, Peter, over six years.

Great work, Peter! Congrats for the great effort.

New site is great!! Thanks for all the effort. I check RubyFlow nearly every day, can’t imagine being without it…

Excellent work, it looks beautiful. I read this site everyday, even before I check my emails. It’s an essential part of my morning routine.

Wonderful news, RubyFlow remains alive and kicking. Thanks a bunch, Peter!

I like it. Thanks for keeping it going!

It’s really impressive with it’s simplicity and flow. Great job! :thumbs_up:

Thanks a lot Peter! I visit RubyFlow almost everyday and it’s really useful to find Ruby resources/news. It also helps me a lot to collect new stuff for the awesome-ruby project.

Nice one Peter.

looks nice! did we lose our original accounts though? I don’t know if the submission count stood for any kind of reputation or etc..

Great news. RubyFlow is fantastic resource for very Ruby developer. Nice feature would be site search. Another one (not so important) to click on a user and see her/his last posts.

Well done, Peter.

IGOR JANCEV, +1. Also it would be nice to have some kind of tags or categories to even better search

Hi, good job. Maybe you can add full article on The feed. We need to add always on the site even for this type on news.
