Welcome. The Ruby Gem of the Week series presents a new Ruby library every week on Thursday. Have your say!

Do you have a Ruby gem that you'd like to write about? We love guest posts. Send in a pull request or open an issue ticket to get the conversation started and your article posted on Planet Ruby.
