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 While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.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

A Rails grid plugin to create grids with sorting, pagination, and filters generated automatically based on column types. The contents of the cell are up for the developer, just like one does when rendering a collection via a simple table. WiceGrid automates implementation of filters, ordering, paginations, CSV export, and so on. Ruby blocks provide an elegant means for this.
