First deployed November 2016, more features planned. Your feedback is welcome!
There have been several ruby and Rails feed aggregators in the past, but none were still functional and maintained. I missed them, and I thought a good aggregator could help increase cohesion of the ruby community. So I built this as a spare-time side project.
I intend Rubyland as a more contemporary iteration of 'planet'-style aggregation, which I think still serves a use despite social aggregator sites.
The source code of Rubyland is open source, and available on Github
Rubyland is sponsored by Expedited Security, the makers of the Expedited WAF Heroku add-on. They provide a modest $20/month to help me at Rubyland pay for heroku and other infrastructure costs. Rubyland is just a volunteer hobby on the side, and I appreciate the sponsorship to help cover costs and motivate me to keep going.
Expedited Security says:
Expedited WAF (Web Application Firewall) - provides security controls for your Heroku application to let you quickly stop DDoS attempts, block bad bots and filter out attacks targeting your web application. Get started now from the Heroku Elements Expedited WAF page.
More sponsors welcome! More sponsorship would allow more heroku infrastructure supporting more resource-intensive features.
Rubyland runs on:
- one heroku 'hobby' dyno, with free heroku postgres Hobby Dev. Rubyland can get away with only one small dyno, because it's mostly cached content. (A free dyno would have worked, but the paid hobby dyno gives us SSL on our custom hostname. Thanks to our sponsor for covering the cost.)
- namecheap domain registrar
- cloudflare free DNS
- mailgun free account for MX server for @rubyland.news, and SMTP for admin alerts from app. (registered directly at mailgun.com gives you somewhat higher limits/features than heroku add-on free tier)
