I've just released the first version of my BackupGem. You can read the manual here:
BackupGem aims to be the easiest and most flexible backup, archive and rotate tool. It’s a beginning-to-end solution for scheduled backups in a clean ruby package that is simple use and powerful when customized.
A configuration as simple as:
set :backup_path, "/var/local/backups/my_old_logs"
action :content, :is_contents_of => "/var/my_logs"
Will compress, encrypt, deliver, and rotate the contents of /var/my_logs. But this is just a taste of the power this gem has.
If you are interested the gem is available via:
gem install backupgem

activeGallery_nm is a folder-based image gallery. This code is originally from Activeunit's activeGallery. It is licensed under GPL, so I am simply releasing it with my own modifications.
The theory is to have a photo gallery that requires no database and is as simple as possible.
Example Gallery. Download [gzip | bz2].
Why re-release it here?
I really like the idea of a folder-based photo gallery, however when I installed the original activeGallery it was buggy and gave lots of errors. Additionally it left open a couple of security holes where a user could browse your server's directories. I've fixed most of these bugs and am continuing development based on their work.
