Provides a Ruby API to push metrics from a Sinatra app to the FiveRuns Dash service, dash.fiveruns.com, currently in beta.
You'll need a Dash account before using this library.
This library is released as a gem from the official repository at github.com/fiveruns/dash-sinatra
sudo gem install fiveruns-dash-sinatra --source 'http://gems.github.com'
First you'll need a token for your Sinatra application. Create a new Ruby app in Dash (dash.fiveruns.com) and copy the token.
Make sure you require the Dash Sinatra recipe:
Now, in your configure block, start up Dash:
Fire up your Sinatra app; you should see it send some environmental information to Dash. Periodically, a background thread will upload your metrics to Dash.
Sinatra adds a route for serving static files from your public folder. If you run Dash in development, these requests will color your requests and response time statistics. If you are using Nginx or Apache to public in your production app, your metrics will be fine.

Dash has been tested with Sinatra 0.9.0. It may work with later versions, but almost certainly doesn't work with earlier versions (0.3.x).
