On August 19, 2009, Why the Lucky Stiff withdrew from the online community. We in the Ruby community wish him well, but we really miss him.
My contribution to this years Whyday, working at blau Mobilfunk GmbH, is a live demo of MongoDB using Mongo Ruby Driver, Mongoid and MongoMapper.
The usage of the interface is quite simple:
- go to twitter.com
- pic a public post
- copy the post-id from the url (http://twitter.com/phoet/status/21556716076)
- paste it into the form
- select the MongoDB driver of choice
- Chunky Bacon!
This will load the Twitter post, show you the executed Ruby source code, add the post to the MongoDB (hosted on MongoHQ), and output the bson data representation.
