My shortlist of Ruby gems

by Giang, last updated 19 Jan 2018

There are always gems for anything, but sometimes there are too many gems for a thing I need, so what gems to choose. Ruby Toolbox is a nice place for that purpose, but it is not always convenience looking there.

I also do not want to remember a (long) list of frequence use gems.

Therefore, follow the criteria from this article: A Guide to Choosing the Best Gems for Your Ruby Project, I create my own shortlist of Ruby gems so when I need, I can make a quick scan through this article.
