Collective Idea's Awesomeness
=============================

A collection of stuff that we use often, but not generic enough to go in another plugin.

If you've stumbled across this and love/hate it, let us know!

== Core Extensions

* Object#tap (http://moonbase.rydia.net/mental/blog/programming/eavesdropping-on-expressions)

* String#widont to make typography nicer (http://shauninman.com/archive/2006/08/22/widont_wordpress_plugin)

* Array#uniq with a block

  >> %w(the cow jumped over the moon).uniq {|s| s.length }
  => ["the", "jumped", "over"]

* Round floats to the nearest x

  >> 5.38475.round(0.5)
  => 5.5

* Hash goodies

  >> {:a => [1,3,4], :b => [2,5]}.without(:a => 1)
  => {:a => [3,4], :b => [2,5]}

  >> {:a => "", :b => nil, :c => 1}.compact
  => {:c => 1}

* And more…

== Rails Helpers

* Unicode TextHelper additions that change the default truncate & excerpt string to an elipsis (…) instead of just three periods (...)

* Add widont to textilize methods

* Transparent removal of trailing slashes in URLs

== Rake Tasks

== Capistrano Recipes

* Use :remote_cache by default

* Disable and enable web during restarts

* Run deploy:cleanup after deploys

* Backups
