Cool Ruby gem from the team at Stripe which makes it easy to run multiple copies of a single long-lived process. From their announcement post:
Einhorn makes it easy to have multiple instances of an application server listen on the same port. You can also seamlessly restart your workers without dropping any requests. Einhorn requires minimal application-level support, making it easy to use with an existing project.
I’m going to take a seriously look at Einhorn before deploying my next app.

Centurion is a DSL for defining environment variables, Docker hosts to deploy to, volumes, and ports
I recently used Elliot Hesp’s Responsive-Dashboard to build an admin for one of my clients. Then he sent me an email telling me how awesome I am. (open source ftw!)
The dashboard is wired up to use Angular (there’s also a jQuery version here) and it’s quite easy to customize for your needs.
Check out the demo page to see what it’s capable of.
Great idea and execution from Jakub Roztočil:
CloudTunes provides a unified interface for music stored in the cloud (YouTube, Dropbox, etc.) and integrates with Last.fm, Facebook, and Musicbrainz for metadata, discovery, and social experience. It is similar to services like Spotify, except instead of local tracks and the fixed Spotify catalog, CloudTunes uses your files stored in Dropbox and music videos on YouTube.
Kitematic is a brand new GUI for managing Docker images on OS X. It’s still early days for the project, but it already has a nice coat of paint and the docs aren’t too shabby either.
It’s still in beta, but if Gooey lives up to what it says on the tin:
Turn (almost) any command line program into a full GUI application with one line
It’ll be massively popular with Python developers.
At first glance, Chartist may look like just-another-js-charting-library. But upon closer inspection, it appears to stand out from the crowd.
Notejam is a project in the spirit of TodoMVC, only for server-side frameworks. It allows you to quickly see how different web frameworks implement the same thing.

RightScale recently unveiled their new Ruby framework. They call it Praxis and it takes a unique approach to building APIs. From the announcement:
With Praxis you create an API by going through the design, review and implementation phases and iterating over them as necessary. Each phase is done independently, and possibly by disjoint sets of people. For example architects could design it, developers implement it and both can review it alongside the customers.
Intrigued? Check out their Getting Started guide to see what this process would look like.
Sander Struijk’s websync looks like nice way to manage a bunch of scheduled rsync transfers
Sahat Yalkabov’s Satellizer module for AngularJS is an end-to-end, token-based authentication system with built-in support for Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and email/password based authentication.
Satellizer boils the client-side implementation down to adding a module dependency and doing a little configuration, but the server side is still up to you.
Sahat provides server-side examples for popular languages, but plug-and-play server implementations would be awesome and appear to be on the TODO list.
PerfBar is a tool by Khalid Lafi that puts dozens of metrics (as well as custom metric support) at the tip of your fingers with just a single script include.

Andrew Kane took a Heroku blog post about getting insights in to your PostgreSQL database and ran with it, creating a nice dashboard you can mount in your Rails app as an engine.
PgHero will show you long running queries, cache hit rate, and more. I installed it on one of my apps this morning and it worked well!
And now for something a little different. I’ll let Russell Harmon’s describe it to you:
g()('al') is a challenge whereby you need to write in as many languages as possible code which enables the code
g()('al') to return the string “goal”, the code
g()()('al') to return the string “gooal”, the code
g()()()('al') return the string “goooal”, etc.
Solutions have been accepted for a score of languages already, but there are many more to add and the PR queue is quite active already.
I love challenges like these. They bring the programming community together and you can learn a lot about different languages by seeing how they solve the same problem.
freeboard is a sharp looking dashboard builder that is focused on IoT, but can be used to visualize pretty much any data source.
