Jo Hund's Software Engineering Guide
This is a collection of guides on various topics related to doing software engineering with Ruby on Rails. There is some Rails specific content in here, however a lot of the guides are generally applicable to software engineering.
I value aesthetics and consistency in code and writing. Makes it a joy to work and makes the work more efficient. Also allows me to learn from my past mistakes (yes, Rails controller cache directives, I'm looking at you and your finickiness irt declaration order). And it really helps when collaborating with others.
- HTML Document Structure
- Rails Controller
- Rails Model
- Rails Module
- Technical Writing in English
I use Github pages to render the rocco generated HTML files. The commands below will generate the html output and push the pages to Github:
cd into software_engineering_guide/guides git checkout master rocco *.rb cd .. git add * git commit -m "recompiled rocco html files" git checkout gh-pages git merge master git checkout master git push
The Markdown formatted style guides don't require pre-processing. I rely on Github's Markdown renderer.
- Ruby style guide started as a fork of Christian Neukirchen's Ruby Style guide. It has since evolved into a larger body of content.
- Rocco is a Ruby port of Docco, the quick-and-dirty, hundred-line-long, literate-programming-style documentation generator.
