I found two great dev tools today:
- Vagrant makes it really easy to set up new dev servers under VirtualBox:
$ gem install vagrant $ vagrant box add base http://files.vagrantup.com/lucid32.box $ vagrant init $ vagrant up
- blueprint takes a manually-configured Ubuntu server and generates a puppet module, chef cookbook, or shell script that can clone or reinstall it.
Also, today I learned enough about Open Library to draw an architecture diagram.
