Applications these days appear to become more specific and role-divided. However, we want to deploy frontend and backend as one unit so I am going to research and to tell how modern JS frameworks are integrating into RoR, with pros, cons, blackjack, and dancers.

Topic: "Domain typing in Ruby"

If you follow DDD approach, you understand that the domain of an application is what really matters.
The better you express it, the more maintainable application you get. Common approaches for modelling of real business processes doesn’t work well on big scale. Single model of Customer with all possible states and attributes in one place quickly turns it into mess. Here is the place where Types Algebra from Functional programming comes helpful. And it can be implemented in Ruby in a decent way.

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   109

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.
