Sinatra::BigBand

BigBand is a stack of Sinatra extensions, most of them developed as part of BigBand, but usable without, each of available as a separate gem. All BigBand extensions follow the same release cycle.

Usage

Simply replace Sinatra::Base with Sinatra::BigBand in your application.

require 'sinatra/big_band'
class MyApp < Sinatra::BigBand
  # ...
end

The BigBand Stack

Sinatra Extensions

Sinatra tool integration:

  • AsyncRack – Makes standard rack middleware play nice with async.callback
  • Haml::More – Adds more functionality to Haml and Sass
  • monkey-lib – Thin layer over ruby extension libraries (like ActiveSupport) to make those pluggable
  • Sinatra::TestHelper – Adds helper methods and better integration for various testing frameworks
  • Sinatra::Extension – Mixin to ease Sinatra extension development.
  • Yard::Sinatra – Displays Sinatra routes (including comments) in YARD output

Besides those extensions, there are others in the BigBand stack, that are external:

General Goals

  • No sub-project relies on BigBand
  • All sub-projects should work with MRI/REE >= 1.8.6 (including 1.9.x), JRuby >= 1.4.0 (>= 1.6.0 recommended) and Rubinius >= 1.0
  • Some sub-projects should work with MagLev and IronRuby (partial MacRuby support planned for later release)
  • Ease to modify the stack

Setup via gem

Try:

gem install big_band
