Streem

Ruby’s creator is working on a new stream based language. It’s in its early days but is clearly influenced by Ruby.
It is a concurrent scripting language based on a programming model similar to shell, with influences from Ruby and other functional programming languages. Currently, it’s still in the design stages.

Papercrop

Papercrop is a gem from rsantamaria. It’s an easy extension for Paperclip to crop your image uploads using jCrop. It’s quite simple to use – there are 2 form helpers (cropbox and crop_preview). Cropbox places an adjustable crop area over the image being cropped and crop_preview renders a small preview of your finished image. Just a note – make sure you allow for additional params when using strong parameters


Papercrop
