Thanks to this month's sponsors!

7 Nov 2011

A big thank you to this month's sponsors for helping me run this site. Please check out the fine services they offer!



DocRaptor generates high quality PDF and XLS documents without expensive upfront server license cost or time-consuming open source conversion libraries. An awesomely simple API makes it easy to implement features like report and proposal downloads within your app. XLS and PDF docs are notoriously hard to work with. DocRaptor eviscerates the conversion process so that you get the docs you want without the hassle.



Postmark is the easiest, fastest, and most reliable way to be sure your important transactional emails get to the inbox. Enjoy simple API or SMTP access, bounce & spam analytics, and fast, friendly, expert customer support. We handle things like whitelisting, ISP throttling, reverse DNS, feedback loops, content scanning, and delivery monitoring to ensure your emails get to the inbox.

Also thanks a lot to Heroku for sponsoring hosting for this site in the last two years and to Tender for running the support site.

If your company would like to support the Toolbox and get word about their service to thousands of Ruby developers around the world, please get in touch via sponsoring (at)

Although the Github Authorization page does not mention it, the request includes read-only access to your verified email address (user:email OAuth scope).
