rmq everywhere
v0.5 changes everything

This is a big update, there are various small things, but the one big one is you no longer have to worry about where you are when you call rmq. You can call rmq() anywhere and it mostly does the right thing. No more self_in_rmq. Read more here.

11/2013 – “motion-mode” by Satoshi Namai - I’m a VIM user myself, but this looks cool for Emacs. Let me know if there is something better for Emacs. In  VIM, I just use the normal ruby plugins including the Dash plugin.

RubyMotion Tip


If you write specs that will cause animations, often your tests will crash without notice. To get around this, turn off all animations with:
UIView.animationsEnabled = false

You can do this in your before and after blocks, or just turn them off for all of your specs.

Roadmap

Where is RMQ going?

v0.5 is now on github [master]:

gem ‘ruby_motion_query’, :git => ‘git@github.com:infinitered/rmq.git’

This is a big update, there are various small things but the big one is that you no longer have to worry about where you are when you call rmq. You can call rmq() anywhere and it mostly does the right thing. No more self_in_rmq. Read more here.

Once it has been tested more, I will release the v0.5 gem. Let me know if you have any issues.
