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 While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.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

Pg is the Ruby interface to the {PostgreSQL RDBMS}[]. It works with {PostgreSQL 8.4 and later}[]. A small example usage: #!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'pg' # Output a table of current connections to the DB conn = PG.connect( dbname: 'sales' ) conn.exec( "SELECT * FROM pg_stat_activity" ) do |result| puts " PID | User | Query" result.each do |row| puts " %7d | %-16s | %s " % row.values_at('procpid', 'usename', 'current_query') end end
