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 While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.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

Paged scopes

PagedScopes is an ActiveRecord pagination gem. It lets you easily paginate collection associations and named scopes. It also paginates collections which already have :limit and :offset scopes in place. You can also find the page containing a given object in a collection, and find the next and previous objects for each object in the collection.
