Bad news. The server hosting The Ruby Toolbox went bust on the evening of June 7th. While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.

For the time being, here is a very stripped down version of the Ruby Toolbox's contents.

Update June 13th: I'd like to invite you to join the discussion on the future of the Toolbox on github. You can also get in touch directly on Twitter.

tailor parses Ruby files and measures them with some style and static analysis "rulers". Default values for the Rulers are based on a number of style guides in the Ruby community as well as what seems to be common. More on this here tailor's goal is to help you be consistent with your code, throughout your project, whatever style that may be.

Keep bad code out of your projects. Your idea of bad code, no one elses. Outlaw defines an example based DSL for demonstrating anti-patterns and builds a rule for each anti-pattern that it alerts the user to violations when encountered in a project's codebase during scanning. Outlaw is a work in progress and contributions, suggestions and forks are welcome. Outlaw was a personal project for Mendicant University, Session 10 in Jan '12
