This framework is getting ready for prime times.
Very well designed, amazing solutions and very comprehensive feature set. I especially like how they reason about everything they use.
Joe Armstrong did a good job on the Erlang concurrency model and that is extremely well suited for high traffic websites with long polling clients. This environment scales better with the number of clients than Ruby (Rails more specifically). More on this topic is here:
The only drawback is that the Erlang syntax is peculiar and not easy to deal with, but it is worth the effort to learn it. For those who are coming from a Lisp like environment there is Elixir, that gets slowly supported in Chicago Boss.
Sometimes it is worth to see your README.md rendered to HTML before your push it to the repo, or simply you want to store the HTML version with the markdown one in the same repo. I bumped into this Python tool that does the job.
I am have no doubt that most of the stuff coming from Pentaho is a joke, but today they could surprise me. Who on this earth would write a software that couples database to an application like this? What sort of moron you have to be for that? What reasoning could you provide to defend this decision? I would be ashamed to offer such a product even for free to anybody.
