RubyConf 2008: rush, a shell that will yield to you
rush (http://rush.heroku.com/) as defined by the website is:
a replacement for the unix shell (bash, zsh, etc) which uses pure Ruby syntax. Grep through files, find and kill processes, copy files - everything you do in the shell, now in Ruby.
In this talk you will learn 2 things.
- First we will go over some rush basics. Like globbing, search and replace, naming files, and processes.
- Second we will add rush to common tools, such as, Rake, Sake, Textmate, Capistrano, and Thor.
About Nicholas Schlueter
Recently, he has been hacking on a new gem call RushMate (https://github.com/schlueter/rushmate/tree). It attempts to bridge rush, the ruby shell written by Adam Wiggens and TextMate, everyone's favorite editor.
