Latin Shoes, lorem-app

So it’s been pretty quiet around these parts lately, my apologies. But I’ve not been keeping quiet on other fronts, I’ve been busy implementing ruote, by John Mettraux and contributing some patches back to this amazing project. Looking at my github profile you’ll see a lot of things have been happening, and twitter also has some noise…

Today though, I thought I’ll take a break and help Michelle with some XML and ActionScript issues and in the process we needed some Lorem Ipsum’s to test big chunks of text. I remember reading about the lorem gem (by John Nunemaker) and recently Shoes’ Raisins release, and decided to combine them.

The result, lorem-app, my fitting of shoes. I must admit that the fitting went better than expected. Shoes is brilliant, and this release runs much better than the previous one (at least on my Ubuntu amd64 laptop). It takes a bit used to, but rocks. I can just imagine some really solid apps coming from this little framework as more people adopt it and start contributing back.


Hope you enjoy, and watch this space for some other great things coming in the near future.

Welcome to the Open Sourcery Archives. These are my older blog posts, from days gone by. I'm keeping them up as part of the historical record. That, and I'm strangely sentimental about them. Please keep in mind that things most certainly have changed since these articles were written, links to external sites might be broken, and general thinking might have changed.

Regardless of all this, I hope you enjoy your stay!
