Over the past few hours I’ve been going crazy installing Ruby gems all over — on my laptop, on my VPS, and even a few on my computer at work.
It’s interesting to see the collection of gems expand and the version numbers creep up. It’s hard to tell what’s stopped running up versions because it’s matured and in maintenance and what’s been abandoned. It’s even harder to tell what’s commonly used. The former can probably be found by lots of searching on RubyForge, but the latter is a lot harder to gauge.
