New Ruby gem released
19 June 2017   1292

According to the developer, this tool will help ensure good Git behavior on your feature branches so undesired commits never make it to master. 


A dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity

Git Cop can be wired in as a Git Hook or be added as part of your build process so feature branch builds fail if commits are bad. Branch code reviews be focused on architecture and high level discussions while Git Cop takes care of reviewing Git commit behavior. All Git Cop checks are completely customizable.


  • Enforces a Git Rebase Workflow.
  • Enforces a consistent Git Commit Style.
  • Enforces good commit subjects with consistent prefixes, suffixes, and lengths.
  • Enforces good commit messages where subject and body are properly separated.

Requieres Ruby 2.4.1

NGINX to Release Unit 1.3 Beta

Developers expanded the ability to run web applications in Python, PHP, Perl, Ruby and Go
16 July 2018   99

In open access, a beta version of the NGINX Unit 1.3 application server was released. Developers continued to expand the ability to run web applications in Python, PHP, Perl, Ruby and Go. The project code is written in C and is distributed under the Apache 2.0 license.


Version 1.3 eliminates the problems with handling errors when installing HTTP connections.

Among other changes:

  • parameter max_body_size to limit the size of the body of the request;
  • new parameters for setting timeouts when setting up an HTTP connection:
         "settings": {
              "http": {
                  "header_read_timeout": 30,
                  "body_read_timeout": 30,
                  "send_timeout": 30,
                  "idle_timeout": 180,
                  "max_body_size": 8388608
  • automatic use of the Bundler where possible in the Ruby module;
  • http.Flusher interface in the module for the Go language;
  • The possibility of using characters in the UTF-8 encoding in the request headers.

The first version of the NGINX 1.1 application server was released in mid-April 2018. Under the control of NGINX Unit, several applications can be executed simultaneously in different programming languages, the startup parameters of which can be changed dynamically without the need to edit the configuration files and restart.
