I've been pretty busy on a couple projects, and haven't done as much reading as I usually do. When you leave your RSS reader unattended for a week or so, it's seriously overwhelming to come back and try to catch up. There is just an insane amount of innovation going on right now. A few links from my reading this morning:
- Unobtrusive Rails plugin (version 0.3) was released a week or so ago. Looking forward to trying it, and getting rid of some inline JS for my prototype-based projects.
- jQuery went 1.0 -- congrats John Resig! Speaking of jQuery, there's a lively discussion based on the relative merits of prototype vs jQuery over here.
- Here's a good overview of microformats.
- Streamlined renders administrative interfaces for your Rails models with very little effort on your part. If you've ever wished scaffolding could deal with relationships, check out Streamlined. Although, I think Streamlined is designed to go much farther than you would ever go with scaffolding, i.e., create near production-ready administrative interfaces. Haven't tried it yet, but plan to.
