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 While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.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.

ERBook 9.2.1 Write books, manuals, and documents in eRuby ERBook is an extensible document processor that emits [1]any document you can imagine from [2]eRuby templates, which allow scripting and dynamic content generation. Version 9.2.1 (2009-11-18) This release fixes some bugs in, and improves the readability and load time of, generated XHTML documents. Bug fixes * Prevent search button from starting search when search box untouched. * Prevent browser from fetching base-64 embedded URI sources by qualifying their digests with the "cid" URI schema, which is used to identify the parts of a multi-part e-mail message. This cuts down on the amount of "404 - File Not Found" errors on the web server which hosts your generated XHTML documents because web browsers will not confuse these embedded "cid" digests as being relative HTTP files. Housekeeping * Increase vertical spacing between [3]References for better readability. * Embed W3C validator badges as base-64 data URIs to reduce page load time. * Split the document processing code in ERBook::Document into smaller self-documenting methods. References 1. 2. 3.
