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 While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.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

Airbrake is an online tool that provides robust exception tracking in any of your Ruby applications. In doing so, it allows you to easily review errors, tie an error to an individual piece of code, and trace the cause back to recent changes. The Airbrake dashboard provides easy categorization, searching, and prioritization of exceptions so that when errors occur, your team can quickly determine the root cause. Additionally, this gem includes integrations with such popular libraries and frameworks as Rails, Sinatra, Resque, Sidekiq, Delayed Job, ActiveJob and many more.
