FreindlyId gem is used to make friendly looking URLs i.e it lets us replace id’s in the URL with the string. It also prevents hacking of the web-page since the id gets hidden by the slug.Before friendly_id:

After friendly_id :

Here are the simple steps to follow:

Step 1: Add gem “friendly_id” to the Gemfile and run “bundle install” on terminal.

A] On an existing application :

Step 2: Run “rails g migration AddSlugToJobs”.

In this case, “slug” is the column name which is adding into existing “jobs” table.

Slug : Slug is the part of the URL. It is the slug which makes the URL user friendly.

Slug rules states that the string in the URL is separated by dash (-). Its rule also states that the letters in the URL are in lowercase.

Step 3: Add the following code to the migration file :

In my application,I have migration file “20180109135747_add_slug_to_jobs.rb” in “db/migrate/20180109135747_add_slug_to_jobs.rb”.In this step I am adding a column name “slug” to the existing table “jobs” and indexing it. In your case, you can add the code to your migration file and replace “:jobs” with your table name.

Step 4: Run “rake db:migrate

Step 5: Add the following code to the model :

In my case, I have added the code in “job.rb” file which is in “app/models/job.rb”. In your case, add the code in your model’s file. In this step, I am extending “FriendlyId” module and using “friendly_id” method with the column name to tell rails which column to be used as a slug.

Step 6: Edit the show action of the controller:

In my application, I have controller “jobs_controller.rb” in app/controllers/jobs_controller.rb. In your case add the following code to the show action of your controller.

Now the friendly_id will be applied to the new records which you create but in order to add friendly_id to the previous records which was created before adding friendly_id gem, follow the next step.

Step 7: run “rails c” enter and run :


Now your application is ready with a functionality of friendly_id. When you will create new record, it’s id in the URL will gets replaced with the slug. In my case , here is my output.

B] On a new project :

Step 2: Run  “rails generate controller Posts index new show destroy ”

Run  “rails generate model Post title:string slug:string body:text ”

Step 3: Add the following line to the migration file :

add_index :posts, :slug, unique: true

In my case, I have added the line in “20180130104525_create_posts.rb” file which is in “db/migrate/20180130104525_create_posts.rb”. Basically, I am adding the index to the “slug” column. In your case add this line in your file in “db/” and replace “:posts” with your table name.

Step 4: Run “rake db:migrate”

Step 5: Add the following code to the model

In my case, I have added the code in “post.rb” file which is in “app/models/post.rb”. In your case add the code in your model’s file. In this step, I am extending “FriendlyId” module and using “friendly_id” method with the column name to tell rails which column to be used as a slug.

Step 6: Edit the show action in the controller.

In my case, I have edited the show action in “post_controller.rb” which is in “app/controllers/post_controller.rb”. In your case edit the show action in your controller.

Now your newly created application is ready with the functionality of friendly_id.

Artists or Bands create songs. These songs are recorded in the digital format like mp3, wav, aac etc. Every artist would like to promote their songs and make money out of it. This is possible by uploading the songs to different digital platforms like itunes, amazon, spotify. Listeners goto these websites to buy, download and listen to the songs. Each website send a revenue sheet with the amount that is collected by the digital platforms which are also called as DSP (Digital Service Provider). This is how an artist monetize the digital content created by him/her.

Digital Music Distribution

Know details of what music distribution is & how it works.

The process of uploading a song on a DSP is different for each DSP. Also keeping a track of revenue from each DSP is also time taking. Artists are more creative and do not like to spend a lot of time with the DSP in managing their contents. This creates a need of Music Distribution System.

Music Distribution System is one stop solution for uploading digital contents (songs) and managing the revenues. It has all the DSPs integrated in the system. The user can create an account on the application and upload the songs to be distributed. User can select the list of DSPs where the song is to be distributed and rest all is taken care by the application.

It uploads the songs and process the revenues at the end of the month. There are reports created that gives an insight on the performance of the songs on different DSPs.

Along with artists, labels can create an account and manage all their artists. They can also create a contract with the artist on the revenue sharing.  There are individual artist reports created along with cumulative label reports.

This all comes with a small fee and helps artist and labels in monetizing their digital contents which are their songs and albums.

How can my application share it's resources with another client? This is where the CORS, or Cross Origin Resource protocol comes in. CORS introduces a standard mechanism that can be used by all browsers for implementing cross-domain requests. The spec defines a set of headers that allow the browser and server to communicate about which requests are (and are not) allowed. CORS continues the spirit of the open web by bringing API access to all.

What is a cross-site request?

Cross-site HTTP requests are HTTP requests for resources from a different domain than the domain of the resource making the request. Such requests are subject to security-based restrictions. To handle this restrictions, and get around them in a secure manner, W3C developed CORS.

What is CORS?

The Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) mechanism provides a way for a server to support cross-site requests and enable the secure transfer of data across different domains/sites.

How can our Rails API utilize CORS?

When the API is not configured to respond to requests you will likely get the error “No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource”. In other words, you won’t be able to call the API directly. So if you have your frontend and backend on different domains you’ll need to allow CORS (cross-origin HTTP request) with the rack-cors gem. This gem provides Rack CORS Middleware to our Rails app, allowing it to support cross-origin resource sharing.

Setting up Rack-CORS:

A few easy steps and we'll be ready to go!
    1. Add the following to your Gemfile and bundle install:
      gem 'rack-cors', :require=>'rack/cors’
    2. Then run bundle install
    3. Add your API module to config/application.rb and configure your Rack-CORS Middleware:
      classApplication <Rails::Application
          # Rails 5
          config.middleware.insert_before 0, Rack::Corsdo
            allow do
              origins '*'
              resource '*', :headers=>:any, :methods=>[:get, :post, :options]
          # Rails 3/4
          config.middleware.insert_before 0, "Rack::Cors"do
            allow do
              origins '*'
              resource '*', :headers=>:any, :methods=>[:get, :post, :options]
    4. With origins "*", we specify that our API will accept HTTP requests from any domain in the whole wide internet.
    5. With resource "*", we specify that a cross-origin request can access any of our resources.
    We then specify that a cross-origin request using any HTTP method will be accepted–although, if you recall, we defined our Graduates class inside our API module to respond to only requests for all grads or just one grad.

CKEditor is text editor basically used for transforming simple text field to dynamic word featured field that helps user to simplify web content creation. In this blog, we will learn how to use CKEditor gem and how to customize it in our Ruby on Rails Application.

Ckeditor Rails Gem

How to use it & customize in Rails application!

Follow some simple steps :

  1. Add 'ckeditor' gem to “Gemfile.rb” and run $ bundle command:
  2. gem 'ckeditor'
  3. Include following in your app's “config/initializers/assets.rb” file:
  4. Rails.application.config.assets.precompile += %w( ckeditor/*)
  5. Following, Include ckeditor javascripts in your “app/assets/javascripts/application.js” file:
    //= require ckeditor/init
  6. Then change simple text_area field to cktext_area in view file as follows:
    <%= f.cktext_area :template_text, placeholder: "Email Body Text" %>
  7. These will transform text field to Ckeditor. The basic Ckeditor will look like image as given below.
    VKeditor by cryptex technologies
  8. To customize CKEditor create “config.js” file in “app/assets/javascripts/ckeditor/” folder and add following code in it:
  9. CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function (config) {
    config.toolbar_mini = [
    ["Bold",  "Italic",  "Underline",  "Strike",  "-"],
    ['BulletedList','NumberedList' ],['Outdent','Indent'],
    config.toolbar = "mini";
    config.toolbarLocation = 'bottom';
    config.height = 280;
    config.width = 620;
    config.removePlugins = 'elementspath';config.removePlugins = 'elementspath';
  1. The customized CKEditor will look like image as given below:

In many applications we need to provide the ability to like/dislike, upvote/downvote kind of functionalities and in order to implement this there is an awesome gem available in Ruby on Rails called “Acts as Votable” gem.These are the simple steps to follow:

Step 1: Create a sample App using scaffold.
Step 2: Add “acts_as_votable” gem to the Gemfile and install it by running bundle install command.
Step 3: This Gem uses vote table to save all voting information. To generate vote migration/ table, run below commands:
rails g acts_as_votable:migration
rake db:migrate
Step 4: For example I have a model called Movie, so I have added acts_as_votabe helper to it. But you can add the following to whatever model in your application which you want to make votable. In app/models/movie.rb, I have :

Also I need another model called User, who is going to vote. So in the app/models/user.rb, I have:

Step 5: For setting up the views to interact with the new functionality of voting I’ll need to add some routes. In app/config/routes.rb, I’ll need to add another block to my movies section.

Step 6: This block invokes the upvote and downvote methods in the movies controller, but those methods don't exist yet. So I’ll define those methods in the app/controllers/movies_controller.rb

Step 7: Finally I will create links in our views to like and dislike i.e. to implement the voting functionality in the browser.

This will create some basic links as like and dislike that, when clicked on, will update with the amount of respective upvotes or downvotes for each movie.

How blockchain works

Blockchain is a distributed database, which consists of two records:

  1. Individual transactions
  2. Blocks

Individual transactions consist of “Header” and “Data” which is related to transactions. Transactions take place for a given period of time. Block is used to create alphanumeric string called as “Hash”.When the first record is created, the next block takes previous block’s Hash for creation of their own Hash. This is authenticated or validated. At this point of the Blockchain process, a majority of nodes in the network must agree the new block’s hash is correctly calculated and ensures that all copies of the distributed ledger share the same state. Once block added, cannot be changed. If we try to change or swap that block, the hashes for previous and subsequent blocks will also change. The other computers in the network will also understand that problem and they will never add new block, until the problem is resolved. When the problem is solved they will start to add the block. If a problem is found in the block it will be not accepted and the process repeats.

Integration on Blockchain API with Rails:

To integrate blockchain api to exchange bitcoin from one wallet to another wallet.


To get the API key we have to first signup on the link

then we will get the API key, for e.g. :


Create API:

First need to create a wallet:

I have created the wallet in the method:


Description: This api is use to create blockchain wallet

# create_wallet: http://XXX.XXX.X.XX:3030/api/v2/create_wallet

# create_wallet:

Write the API method to check the wallet balance.

            wallet_address: “Address of the wallet”

            Confirmation: “Password”


Write API to send or receive bitcoin using guid.

	Guid: Uniq id of the user
	main_password: blockchain password
	second_password: blockchain second password
	to: Receiving address
	from: Sending address

make_payment_by_guid: http://localhost:3030/merchant/%{guid}/payment?password=%{main_password}&second_password=%{second_password}&to=%{address}&amount=%{amount}&from=%{from}


Description: “this api will use for getting bitcoin value as per the local currency.”

for ex., 1btc = ? (USD)

The following method is used to call the bitcoin exchange API using guid

# def self.transaction_by_guid(receiver_address, amount_in_btc, guid, main_pass, second_pass)

def self.receive_btc_by_guid(guid, sender_main_password, sender_second_password, to_wallet_address, amt_in_btc, from_wallet_address)

# convert btc to satoshi and add transaction fee

amount = (btc_to_satoshi(amt_in_btc))

# Prepare params

request_url = Bitcoinexchange::Application.blockchain[“api”][“make_payment_by_guid”] % {guid: guid || ”, main_password: sender_main_password || ”, second_password: sender_second_password || ”, address: to_wallet_address, amount: amount, from: from_wallet_address}

# If in response failure occurred using third party API or http client it generate error and return nil into the response

response =  begin

RestClient.get(request_url, {“Content-Type”: “application/x-www-form-urlencoded”})

rescue RestClient::ExceptionWithResponse => e



# If response is success(code == 200)

response_body = JSON.parse(response.body)

if response.code == 200


elsif response_body[“error”]!=””


# it gives the the converted value in BTC

# response_body = “#{response_b[“message”]}” +” to “+”#{response_b[“to”]}”+”successfully.”


# To raise the error if error occured in executing blockchain api

raise Exceptions::TransactionError::ParamsError, response.body



What is filterrific?

'filterrific' gem is used for filtering the data only. It is a Rails Engine plugin that makes it easy to filter, search, and sort your ActiveRecord lists.

Ruby On Rails Gem Filterrific

Features of filterrific gem:

    • It Integrates with pagination
    • Filters can be reset to default settings
    • Makes heavy use of ActiveRecord Scopes
    • API option to use Filterrific with Rails API mode. Just use gem 'filterrific', require: 'filterrific_api' in your Gemfile
    • ActionController helpers to shuttle filter params from ActionView forms to ActiveRecord based models, and to return matching records back from ActiveRecord to ActionView
    • It depends on ActiveRecord scopes for building DB queries
    • Can be used for HTML/JS/JSON/XML response formats
    • It is used to run filter settings from a filter UI to the controller and ActiveRecord
    • It persists filter settings in the HTTP session or DB for saved searches


  • Rails - 3.x and above
  • ActiveRecord 4 and above
  • jQuery and Asset pipeline for form observers and spinner

What I need to do?

  • Need to define ActiveRecord Scopes
  • Need to build and style filter form and record lists

How to use it?

Let us assume that we want to show the lists of ‘Students’ that can be filtered by application’s users. Step 1:
  • #Gem File
  • gem ‘filterrific’
Step 2: Add Filterrific to ‘student’ model:
 default_filter_params: { sorted_by: 'created_at_desc' },
 available_filters: [
 # define ActiveRecord scopes for
 # :search_query, :sorted_by, :with_country_id
Step 3: Use Filterrific in index method of StudentsController:
def index
 @filterrific = initialize_filterrific(
 ) or return
 @students =[:page])

respond_to do |format|
Step 4: Here's the lists of students' data is showing in the view. Lastly, the Filterrific ActionView API is used to create the views:
  • Basically it shows the list of matching records and the form to update filter settings via AJAX form submission
  • Also used to reset the filter settings

Spree Commerce is a complete, scalable, API-driven open source Ecommerce framework. It is built with Ruby on Rails, empowering forward thinking developers for years. In 2018 Spree is a matured and market proven technology.

Spree is well suited to serve as a custom technology platform for any type of an Ecommerce application: an online shop, a multi vendor marketplace, a rich-content driven commerce project, a social commerce website or a backend engine for an Ecommerce mobile or tablet app (iOS, Android).

Spree allows you to design and develop a unique, beautiful front-end UX. On the backend it combines API driven omni-channel support with multiple stock location capability, enabling business scalability and flexibility.

Spree allows for rapid development and short time to market because its lean core functionality may be easily customized with a collection of official extensions, as well as hundreds of unofficial ones. By applying these extensions you may customize Spree to your specific use case, industry or a business model.

Integrating Spree using ruby on rails

    1. Prerequisites

Before integrating spree in our ruby on rails application we will require the following prerequisites.

      • Ubuntu OS(14.04 or higher)
      • Sublime text/ VScode(Editor)
      • Ruby 2.3.0 or higher
      • Rails 4.2 or higher
      • Database(MySql/Sqlite/psql)
      • Heroku setup(optional)
    1. Installation guide

The following steps will guide us how to integrate spree in our rails application.

  • Create ruby on rails application
  • For ex., rails new SpreeDemo -d
    database: Name of the database(mysql, psql etc)
  • Add the specific required gem in the gemfile.
    Rails 5.1
    gem 'spree', '~> 3.4.4'
    gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.3'
    gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.3'
    Rails 5.0
    gem 'spree', '~> 3.2.7'
    gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.3'
    gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.3'
    Rails 4.2
    gem 'spree', '~> 3.1.12'
    gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.3'
    gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.3'
    • Run the following rake commands and generator commands.
      1. bundle install
      2. Use the install generators to set up Spree:
    rails g spree:install --user_class=Spree::User
    rails g spree:auth:install
    rails g spree_gateway:install
        • Rake setup
    bundle exec rake railties:install:migrations
    bundle exec rake db:migrate
    bundle exec rake db:seed
    bundle exec rake spree_sample:load
    1. Customization
  • To meet the business requirement we have to override/ extend the classes and views.
  • Standard practice for including such changes in your application or extension is to create a file within the relevant app/models/spree or app/controllers/spree directory with the original class name with _decorator
  • Adding a custom method to the Product model:
    Spree::Product.class_eval do
    def some_method

    • Adding a custom action to the ProductsController:
      Spree::ProductsController.class_eval do
      def some_action
    • You can export all views from spree frontend into your application using rails generate spree:frontend:copy_viewsThis is the recommended way of customizing views in Spree.
    1. Websites built in Spree
    2. Market Statistics
      This is the APR-2017 market statistics. This market statistics shows the difference between shopify and spree commerce. The difference is due to its use and handling. The shopify eCommerce store can be created and published by anyone. But, spree commerce have to be integrated and published manually by application programmers(web developers). spree-commerce
    3. Advantages
      • Easily customizable construction allowing users to create the ideal store for their business.
      • Light, fast, and flexible with a powerful backend admin module.
      • Comprehensive support package plus Ruby on Rails community offers solid and reliable support.
      • Spree officially maintains many extensions to provide additional functionality that isn’t available out of the box.
      • Fast and easy integrations with third-party solutions
    4. Disadvantages
      • Coding skills or technical assistance are needed.
      • Currently, only a handful of themes is available.
      • In some cases, some “common” functionality may require custom development.
        This platform doesn’t provide any support in a traditional sense, but still, you can find a forum and tons of useful documentation on the web. Plus, there’s a Ruby on Rails community which maintains Spree, making it stable, multi-functional and free.

    What is Docker?

    Docker is the world's leading software container platform. Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to deploy and run applications by using containers. Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and ship it all out as one package.

    Where does Docker operate?

    1. Design
    2. Development
    3. Deployment
    4. Testing/Release

    Docker makes the process of application deployment very easy and efficient and resolves a lot of issues related to deploying applications.

    • Build application only once:

    An application inside a container can run on any system that has Docker installed. So there is no need to build and configure application multiple times on different platform.

    • More Sleep and Less Worry

    With Docker you test your application inside a container and ship it inside a container. This means the environment in which you test is identical to the one on which the application will run in production.

    • Portability

    Docker containers can run on any platform. It can run on your local system, Amazon ec2, Google Cloud platform, Rackspace server, Virtual box... etc.

    • Version Control

    Like Git, Docker has in-built version control system.

    Docker container work just like GIT repositories, allowing you to commit changes to your Docker images and version control them.

    • Isolation

    With Docker, every application works in isolation in its own container and does not interferes with other applications running on the same system. So multiple containers can run on same system without interferes. For removal also you can simply delete the container and it will not leave behind any files or traces on the system.

    • Productivity

    Docker allows faster and more efficient deployments without worrying about running your application on different platform.

    How to Install Docker in Linux?

    1. Connect to Linux Connect with AWS or other
    2. Install Docker sudo yum -y update sudo yum install -y docker
    3. Start Docket sudo service docker start sudo usermod -a -G docker ec2-user(This is optional)
    4. Stop Docker sudo service docker stop

    Many beginners want to deploy their simple application on production environment, but they do not get any free cloud service. So what they can do? Well, there is a solution provided by Heroku. Heroku is a cloud platform as a service supporting several programming languages that is used as a web application deployment model.

    Before starting deployment, we need four things Git version control, SSH key, Bit-bucket remote repository and Heroku account. If you don't have any one of these, don't worry.

    So, let’s get started!

    Step 1. Install Git version control system.

    • To install git on your system, go ahead and download latest version of Git, follow the instructions to install Git.
    • To verify the installation was successful, open terminal or command prompt and type git --version. It will look like this.
    $ git –version

    git version 2.9.2

    • If you have installed Git first time you need to create username and email using below commands.
                 $ git config --global "Foo Bar"             
                 $ git config --global

    Congratulation! you have Git on your system. The next step is to create Ruby on Rails application.

    Step 2. Create Ruby on Rails application.

    • If you are new to Ruby on Rails, visit Rails Guides and create simple blog application.
    • In root directory of project run $ git init to initialize new repository. Add all the project files to repository using command $ git add -A.
    • To tell Git we want to keep the changes, we use the commit command.
                 $ git commit –m “Initialize repository”

    Step 3. Setup Bit-bucket remote repository.

    You also can use GitHub remote repository, but there is a problem, GitHub does not provide free private repositories while Bit-bucket does.

    • Sign up for a Bit-bucket account if you don’t already have one.
    • We need SSH key to use Bit-bucket, so how to get and install SSH key in Bit-bucket account.
    • Add your public key to Bit-bucket by clicking on the avatar image. Select “Bit-bucket settings” and then “SSH Keys”.
    • Once you’ve added your public key, click on ‘+’ sign to create a new repository, make sure “This is a private repository” checked and select "include a README" to No.
    • Now we are going to push our project to the Bit - bucket. The below commands first tell Git that you want to add Bit-bucket as the origin for your repository, and then push your repository up to the remote origin. To find the remote origin URL has gone to bit-bucket -> open repository created in previous steps -> scroll down and choose "I have an existing project".
                $ git remote add origin
                $ git push -u origin –all

    Step 4. Deploy application to Heroku.

    Heroku uses the PostgreSQL as production database, which means that we need to add the 'pg gem' in the production environment to allow Rails to talk to PostgreSQL. Open Gem file and below group.

    group :production do
    gem 'pg', '0.20.0'

    To prepare the project for deployment, we run bundle install with a special flag to prevent the local installation of any production gems.

    $ bundle install --without production

    Next, we have to create and configure a new Heroku account.

    • The first step is to sign up for Heroku. Then check to see if your system already has the Heroku command-line client installed. If you don't have Heroku installed. Install it using Heroku Toolbelt.
                $ heroku version
    • Once you’ve verified that the Heroku command-line interface is installed, use the Heroku command to log in and add your SSH key.
                $ heroku login
                $ herokukeys:add
    • Finally, use heroku create command to create a place on the Heroku servers for the app to live.
                 $ heroku create
    • To deploy the application use Git to push the master branch up to Heroku.

    To see your newly deployed application, visit the address that you saw when you run heroku create.

    After creating REST API, it’s important that API should be documented, so the others can use the documentation and understand the requirement and implementation of API.

    Swagger documentation provides the interface to REST APIs which allows people and system to understand the API without access to source code.

    Use ‘swagger-docs’ gem to document the API.

    This will generate swagger-ui json files for rails apps with APIs specification that can be used by person to know about the APIs.

    To start create swagger_docs.rb file in config/initializers and define your APIs as below:

    "1.0" => {
    :api_extension_type =>:json,
    # path for .json files 
    :api_file_path =>"public",
    :base_path =>"",
    :clean_directory =>false,
    :attributes => {
    :info => {
    "title" =>"Swagger Sample App",

    Swagger document contain the json controller which has the API swagger_controller directives.

    For example ItemsController has the API specification

    render:json => {result:"Success"}, :status =>200

    Run rake task to generate docs

    Rake swagger: docs

    Above command examines your controllers to determine which controllers should be documented for swagger-ui.

    Generate the api-docs.json output in public folder which contains the API specification for the items_swagger controller.

    Breadcrumbs are graphical control element used as navigational aid in user interfaces. Today I am going to explain how it can be implemented in Ruby on Rails in simple steps as follows:

    Step 1: Create a sample app using scaffold

    Step 2: Add"breadcrumbs_on_rails" gem to the Gemfile and install it.

    Step 3: Create a home.html.erb in articles for home page and route for it.

    --> app/views/articles/home.html.erb


    This is the home page of Sample Article

    <%= link_to "Articles", articles_path%>

    --> config/routes.rb

    root 'articles#home'


    Step 4: Add breadcrumb for home page.

    In Articles Controller create method “add_breadcrum” to set the braedcrumb for home path like this:

    --> app/controllers/articles_controller.rb


    add_breadcrumb "Home".html_safe


    For every view page set home page as the first breadcrumb in articles controller by the default using:

    before_action :add_breadcrum

    Step 5: Add breadcrumb for other pages of article like index, create, edit and show in articles controller by adding the line for breadcrumb as “add_breadcrumb ...........”.

    --> app/controllers/articles_controller.rb

    def index

    @articles = Article.all

    add_breadcrumb "Index".html_safe



    def new

    @article =

    add_breadcrumb "Index".html_safe

    add_breadcrumb "Create".html_safe



    def edit

    add_breadcrumb "Index".html_safe

    add_breadcrumb "Edit: #{@article.title}".html_safe



    def show

    add_breadcrumb "Index".html_safe

    add_breadcrumb "Show: #{@article.title}".html_safe



    Step 6: To add seprator “/” and show breadcrumb to view page we will render the breadcrumb

    <%= render_breadcrumbs :separator => " / " %>

    I have seen many developers that are looking for creating "Drag and Drop" functionality in Ruby On Rails technology. So I'm going to brief about a sample to create and implement this functionality using JQuery Rails, JQuery UI Rails and Rails Sortable gems. Given below are simple steps required to create the rails application:

    Ruby On Rails Programming

    How to create Drag and Drop functionality in Ruby on Rails?

    First of all we will create a simple application first to create the products.

      1. The first Step we required to create the Rails Application.
        $ rails new SampleSortRails
      2. By using the scaffold we will generate the the MVC components needed for Simple Products application form
        $ cd SampleSortRails
        $ rails g scaffold Product name:string description:text quantity:integer price:integer sort:integer
      3. Create the Products database table:
         $ rake db:create
        $ rake db:migrate
        Rails uses rake commands to run migrations. Migrations are Ruby classes that are designed to make it simple to create and modify database tables. Rails uses rake commands to run migrations.
      4. Then we need to set routes of our application.
        $ rake routes
             Prefix Verb   URI Pattern                  Controller#Action
                products GET    /products(.:format)          products#index
                         POST   /products(.:format)          products#create
             new_product GET    /products/new(.:format)      products#new
            edit_product GET    /products/:id/edit(.:format) products#edit
                 product GET    /products/:id(.:format)      products#show
                         PATCH  /products/:id(.:format)      products#update
                         PUT    /products/:id(.:format)      products#update
                         DELETE /products/:id(.:format)      products#destroy
                    root GET    /                            products#index
        sortable_reorder POST   /sortable/reorder(.:format)  sortable#reorder
      5. In the routes.rb file then we will set the routes of our application.
        Rails.application.routes.draw do
          resources :products
          root 'products#index'
      6. We have made the simple application for products CRUD operation for adding the Drag and drop functionality in the Application we need to follow some steps and need to do Setup .
        First of all we need to add the gem files in the application in the gem file.
        gem 'jquery-rails'
        gem 'jquery-ui-rails'
        gem 'rails_sortable'
      7. Then we need to run the bundle install command.
         $bundle install
      8. And then We need to add the following to the asset pipeline in the application.js:
        //= require jquery
        //= require jquery_ujs
        //= require jquery-ui/widgets/sortable
        //= require rails_sortable
      9. We have already run the migration command our database migration command look like this.
        class CreateProducts < ActiveRecord::Migration[5.1]
          def change
            create_table :products do |t|
              t.string :name
              t.text :description
              t.integer :quantity
              t.integer :price
              t.integer :sort
      10. The product model look like this
        class Product < ApplicationRecord
          include RailsSortable::Model
          set_sortable :sort
      11. In the controller index method we only need to change one line.
        class ProductsController < ApplicationController
          def index
            @products = Product.order(:sort).all
      12. Normally The view of index page always look like this we only need to change some part of code
            <% @products.each_with_sortable_id do |product, sortable_id| %>
              id="<%= sortable_id %>">
                <%= %>
                <%= product.description %>
                <%= product.quantity %>
                <%= product.price %>
                <%= product.sort %>
                <%= link_to 'Show', product %>
                <%= link_to 'Edit', edit_product_path(product) %>
                <%= link_to 'Destroy', product, method: :delete, data: { confirm: 'Are you sure?' } %>
              <% end %>
      13. In the Application.js file we need to add the Javascript function
        $(function() {
      14. Then we need to start the server.
        $rails s
      Feel free to ask any queries.

    Code cleanup refers to the act of writing code so that it cleans up leftover data structures and other unwanted materials from memory and the file system. It is not the same as refactoring code, which involves making the source code itself easier to understand, maintain, and modify. TraceRoute is the tool helpful for code cleanup.

    Integrate this gem in the Rails application by putting this gem into gem file.

    Traceroute is a route cleaning tool for Rails applications. It provides a simple rake task for checking which routes are mapped to non existing controller actions, and finds out which controller actions are not reachable.

    The following steps with the description implements Traceroute for code cleanup using traceroute gem in our ruby on rails application easily.

    STEP 1. gem install traceroute

    STEP 2. Bundle Install

    STEP 3.Type rake traceroute in command prompt and press Enter. List will appears with unused routes and unreachable action methods.

    Sorting, searching and paginating data has always been one of the requirements of a Rails application.DataTable gem provides a jQuery Javascript library - Highly flexible tool, based upon the foundations of progressive enhancement which will add advanced interaction controls to any HTML table.

    Integrate this gem in the Rails application by putting this gem into gemfile.

    DataTables makes it easy to convert a plain HTML table into one with pagination, sorting, and searching - all done with JavaScript or jQuery. Instead of writing searching functionality, sorting functionality and pagination functionality separately, these functionalities are conveniently performed by using datatable gem.

    Sorting data is inbuilt so instead of sortable_table gem use datatable gem and all columns are sortable in ascending and descending order.

    In some cases, we have to hide searching, pagination functionality in table. For hiding pagination functionality we have to write "bPaginate": false and for hiding searching functionality we have to write "searching": false.

    When you reload the page,you can see your listing page in better UI with sorting searching and pagination functionality.

    The following steps with the description implements sorting,searching and pagination for particular table using datatable gem in our ruby on rails application easily.

    STEP 1. gem install jquery-datatables-rails

    STEP 2. Open app/assets/javascript/application.js and write : //= require dataTables/jquery.dataTables

    STEP 3. Open app/assets/stylesheets/application.css and write : *= require dataTables/jquery.dataTables

    STEP 4. Provide id for a particular table.) (table class="table table-bordered table-striped" id="myTable"

    STEP 5. Call this table id by jQuery DataTable() function.

    Sample Code:

    table class="table table-bordered table-striped" id="myTable"

    script type="text/javascript"

    Give your web and mobile apps the power to exchange messages of any variety, from chat to SMS. You get global reach, delivery intelligence and the highest reliability over both IP and carrier networks, all with minimal development effort.

    Here Twilio, is a cloud communications platform. We can able to use it in a various ways. It is specially available for the developers to get interact with the communication resources like., SMS, MMS, voice or video calls.

    Twilio platform is available not only for ruby language but also for many kinds of programming languages like., C#.Net, Java, Python, PHP, Node, Android etc. The availability of the service is really good and easy for the developers perspective which bring something good for the developing application.

    Using Twilio we can integrate SMS, MMS, or Voice and Video service in our developing application. It is just a couple of integration steps through which we can use the described services easily.

    So, Lets start with the some programming language through which we can use it easily. The following steps with the description implements simple messaging service in our ruby on rails web application easily.

    STEP 1.

    For implementing SMS service into our rails application by twilio we have to register freely onto Just after registration we will get the the attributes which we will use into our rails application and that are., TWILIO_AUTH_TOKEN, TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID, TWILIO_NUMBER.

    STEP 2.

    Create a simple Rails application using “rails new ” .

    STEP 3. gem install twilio-ruby

    STEP 4. For the use of SMS service create a controller “Messaging_using_twilio”.

    STEP 5. Create a method send_sms into the controller as well as we have to create a view which show only two fields, that are., Message text box and Send button.

    STEP 6. Into the send_sms method we need to set three parameters which are we got from twilio account for the service use, that are., twilio_account_sid, twilio_auth_token, twilio_number.

    STEP 7. Just below the parameters initialization we will create rest object of the twilio or instantiate Twilio::REST::Client To access Twilio REST resources. The Twilio::REST::Client needs your Twilio credentials(twilio_account_sid, twilio_auth_token, twilio_number). It will return twilio REST resources.

    STEP 8. Then just after that we can call the method messages.create() which require :from, :to and :body parameters. The :from is our twilio contact number, :to is our registered contact number (or any contact number if :from number is a paid/ purchased) and :body is nothing but our string message.

    STEP 9. The twilio-ruby library will throw a Twilio::REST::RequestError. 400-level errors are normal during API operation (“Invalid number”, “Cannot deliver SMS to that number”, for example) and should be handled appropriately. Through out this way you can easily implement sms service using twilio trial account.


    def send_sms

    ENV['TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID'] = "AC48df98e647aeaasdasAASD232bbc26863"

    ENV['TWILIO_AUTH_TOKEN'] = "5819a96aed8298f232130f212137b5"

    ENV['TWILIO_NUMBER'] = "+11159878489"


    client = ENV['TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID'],


    response = client.messages.create(

    from: ENV['TWILIO_NUMBER'],

    to: params[:phone_no],

    body: "Welcome to Twilio SMS service.")

    render json: {:response => response}, status: :ok

    rescue Twilio::REST::RequestError => e

    render json: {:errmsg => e.message}, status: :ok



    In the current technologically sound world more and more are opting for web applications for taking their business to a new lateral. In the past few years, Canvas has evolved as one of the most popular learning management system (LMS) and is successfully adopted by many educational and corporate institutions. However, people have restrained there thinking to the fact that canvas can only be used as a Learning Management System. The fact is that Canvas is not limited to only LMS; instead, it is beyond that. Canvas can be effectively used for other domains as well; one of the most innovative ways of using canvas is for conducting Virtual expos.

    Features in canvas can be proficiently used for commencing virtual Exhibitions, such as:

    Registration of User Types: In any sort of exhibition, different group of people or companies set up their booths for displaying their product and services. For establishing a virtual exhibition there are both visitors and organizers. As whole of the process is done through online medium, hence, canvas provides different users different registration type. This helps is proper bifurcation of users.

    Restrictions of accessibility as per the user type: With Canvas, one can create different types of users and based on their role can also define accessibility criteria. For examples: admin can have access to all the functionalities of the application, booth owners will have their own set of accessibility and so the visitors. This will maintain proper flow and confidentiality of data.

    Allocation of number of Expos and Booths as per the subscription Plan: Canvas also offer monthly, quarterly, half yearly or annual subscription plan for allocating defined number of expos or booths. This feature helps in keeping proper records of past as well as future expos.

    Creation of Expos: Canvas acts as a medium for organizing different types of events. As everything is virtual, hence, the booths that are induced in the expos are also virtual that can be created using canvas.

    Creation of Booths: Expos are incomplete without booths; this is so because booths signify the display of products and services in expos. Like expos, booths can also be created from canvas.

    Video Upload: This is one of the most interesting features in Canvas, one can upload videos of past expos for giving the visitors can have an overview of how the expos are held. This gives them a sense of confidence. In addition, one can also create dummy videos of how they are planning for the upcoming expos.

    Audio visualizers renders music beautifully by visual effects it is a feature found in digital media players it displays animated images synchronized with a piece of deity. If you break the term "audio visualizer" in two parts you get "Audio" and "visualizer", to visualize something is to form a mental image of it, so the audio visualizer converts an audio file into visual effects. Visual effects when combined and synced with music gives listeners a visual delicacy and leisure. We have created a visualizer with web audio API based on HTML5 which is compatible with all the technologies. our visualizer can be customized according to the music genre and personal requirements. This visualizer allows listeners to comment on the songs and express their opinions, their comments can seen by others while listening the songs, these pop on the digital visualizer. Comments can be filtered, we enforce a standard common decency and civility here, aggressiveness, personal attacks and bigotry is prohibited and can be reported.

    The graphic visualizations of music is a great source of inspiration for the info-graphic designers. The potential music visualization has for an open mind is tremendous. The combinations of both auditory and the visual effect is often ignored, but the audio visualizers can add a real wow!! factor to your music website. Adding the visualizer gives you impeccable user interface and attraction. Visualizers can either be 3D or 2D.

    Music distribution websites design and display their own audio visualizer so that their users can feats their eyes on something while listening music. The essential features of the visualizers that it must have are contrast, clarity improved loud list and an attractive but not too much flamboyant background. The visualizer should also be completely synced with the beats and rhythm of the piece of music. Adding real-time Music visualizer gives your music distribution website more lifelike experience.

    Software development is something all types of companies around the world are having to adopt. How they go about purchasing a custom software is a key to their success. There are two choices a company has when it comes to custom software.

    1) Waterfall methodology.

    2) Agile methodology.

    Waterfall methodology is older than Agile methodology is basically a linear model of software design. Waterfall employs sequential codes and design process. In contrast agile proposes an iterative approach to software design. Agile methodology was born after the waterfall model in response to the shortcomings of the waterfall model.

    The present situation of the software development market is inconsistent and unstable. Nowadays everyone seems to sell software development services, price ranges significantly, the companies are young and quotes are rarely transparent, etc. In order to sustain in competitive and inconsistent environment one should adopt an agile methodology. There are several ways agile methodology can help software development companies respond to the dynamic conditions of the market.

    Transparency and pricing :

    Agile contracts offer transparency: The Standard agile contract defines resource types, and resource dedication.

    For example:

    1) Project manager 50% dedication

    2) .net developer 25% dedication

    3) Senior .net developer 25% dedication

    Clients actively participate in requirement definition and operating cost of the development team. Everything is discussed out in the open team. Time and cost related with every software functionality discussed openly with the development team.

    Stock Projection Application basically used for Stock Markets in which shares of publicly held companies are issued and traded either through exchanges or over the counter markets . Also known as the equity markets, the stock market is one of the most vital components of a free-market economy, as it provides companies with access to capital in exchange for giving investors a slice of ownership in the company.

    Function and Purpose of Stock Market

    The stock market is one of the most important ways for companies to raise money, along with debt markets which are generally more imposing but do not trade publicly. This allows businesses to be publicly traded, and raise additional financial capital for expansion by selling shares of ownership of the company in a public market. The liquidity that an exchange affords the investors enables their holders to quickly and easily sell securities. This is an attractive feature of investing in stocks, compared to other less liquid investments such as property and other immoveable assets. Some companies actively increase liquidity by trading in their own shares.

    About Stock Projection Application

    This application fetches the recent data of all together 2161 companies from Yahoo Finance and after some calculation reffrenced with past 7 days , it will display conditions of “Buy” (i.e whether the company has profit or loss).

    The Mockworth Clock Game is concentration game based on Mockworth Clock. The Game has a black background circular Dial with 24 "+" marks representing 24 slots like clock and red dot jumping over these slots . The red dots moves in short jumps like the second hand of an analog clock, approximately every second. At infrequent and irregular intervals, the red dots makes a double jump, e.g. 3 times in 1 complete loop. Basically the game is to detect when the double jumps occur by pressing space-bar. Typically, Mackworth's participants would play these game for pre-defined number of loops.

    The Clock is an experimental device used in the field of experimental psychology to study the effects of long term vigilance on the detection of signals. It was originally created by Norman Mackworth as an experimental simulation of long term monitoring by radar operators in the British Air Force during World War II.


    In Mockworth clock game, black circular dial is designed with the help of HTML and CSS, 24 “+” signs are designed using images and it is placed in circle with css property transform: rotate(x deg) translate(x px) rotate(-x deg) where x and y is user defined.

    For example:

    red dot pointing at 12 o'clock

    .deg270 {

    transform: rotate(270deg) translate(17em) rotate(-270deg);


    Red dot movement is achieved with the help of javascript animate() function and opacity css property. And to make red dot movement in loop, we use javascript recursive setTimeout(function()) function.

    For example:

    To blink red dot at some interval of time.

    setTimeout(function() {


    {opacity: 1},{

    duration: 400,complete: function ()


    $(this).css({opacity: 0}); <.p>




    Skipping of red dot is done by Math.round(Math.random()) function.

    When red dot skips, participant need to press space-bar and hit counts. These is achieved by using keypress() function and result is displayed in score board.

    For example:

    For counting space-bar pressed.


    var keycode = (event.keyCode ? event.keyCode : event.which);

    if(keycode == '32' ){

    SCORE = SCORE + 1 ;


    document.getElementById(' id_name ').innerHTML = SCORE;


    At the end of game, final result is displayed, which is using parseInt() and text() function.

    Game Procedures
    • A circle, with 24 equally spaced "slots" (as represented by the empty space between two "+" marks), is presented on the computer screen.
    • The Subject can put n number of loops as per interest in input box and starts the game.
    • A red dot starts from the 12'o clock position and flashes in turn in each "slot".
    • The dot stays visible for 1 sec and so there is an interval of 1 sec between each flash.
    • At some postion red dot skip anomaly .
    • Total number skip is random in complete one loop.
    • The subject identifies this event by hitting the space bar (or other user-definable key).
    • The entire game lasts up to a pre-defined number of loop.
    • After the game over result is diplayed on Score Board in percentage.

    Why Use Pluck in Ruby on Rails:

    Pluck in ROR is used to get array of particular attribute based on particular condition from database. If you only require a few attributes from a table, rather than instantiating a collection of models and then running a .map over them to get the data you need, it’s much more efficient to use .pluck to pull back only the attributes you need as an array.

    The benefits of using pluck are: better SQL performance and less time and memory spent in Ruby on Rails.

    Standard format of using pluck method is


    Using Pluck:
    1. You can select one or more attributes without loading a bunch of records just to grab the attributes you want.
    2. You will get array of values of attribute which we pass to it.
    3. Pluck also replace select and map while querying.
    4. You can avoid extra loops to get ids from the collection of ActiveRecord while using the pluck method.
    5. Pluck is useful method in ruby to improving performance of your app.
    6. Pluck returns the array and breaks the ActiveRecord query method chain so becareful when you want to query on the result.

    Pluck can be use in various ways to improve our code quality as well as speed of app, some of them are shown below

    When you want array of ids from a table you can use pluck

    eg. Category.pluck(:id)

    # => [1, 2, 3]

    You can use pluck to get array of multiple attributes from table

    eg. Service.pluck(:id, :business_id)

    # => [[1, 3], [2, 5], [3, 2]]

    If you want unique values of attribute in array you can use pluck as given below

    eg. Category.uniq.pluck(:name)

    # => ['home', 'apartment', 'hotel']

    You can use pluck in query itself

    eg. categories = Category.where(name: “home”)

    Service.where(category_id: categories.pluck(:id))

    # => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

    Bitcoins are a very common terminology now. To let you know further about Bitcoin it’s a very popular cryptocurrency. As it’s a crypto currency it’s a virtual money and cannot be exchanged physically.

    There are ways of using plastic money and most of the merchants use the way of getting the payment online. But while including this third party integration the merchant has to pay this third party and there is approximately 3% the merchant has to pay for every transaction made.

    The way PayPal, Braintree, Ccavenue, and other payment gateway work the same way Bitcoin payment gateway can be integrated in a merchant's e-commerce site.Bitcoins are virtual currency and can be saved in virtual wallets. The merchant’s wallet will be integration in his application and the customer can make the payment through bitcoins which Will be transferred to the merchants wallet.

    These bitcoins accumulated in merchant’s account can be exchanged to the local currency as and when required. Bitcoin payment gateway integration is a very easy to be implemented payment gateway and has a easy understandable documentations for the same.

    What is RESTful API

    A RESTful API is an application program interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data. Representational state transfer (REST), which is used by browsers, can be thought of as the language of the Internet.

    Steps in creating RESTful API: Step 1: Creating an API

    While creating an API, the controller is kept in a separate folder named api inside app/controller of the ROR application.

    Step 2: Creating a Versioning Folder

    Once an api folder is created, we create a versioning folder under api folder. This versioning folder is created according to the API requirement. An existing API should never be modified, except for critical bugfixes. Rather than changing existing API we create another version of that API.

    For ex., app/controller/api/v1 or app/controller/api/v2

    Step 3: Creating a Controller File

    Create a controller file inside the api folder like home_controller.rb

    Step 4: Creating Controller Class

    Inside the controller file we need to create the controller class. This controller class will contain the method which is used while calling an API. Basically, the method inside the controller is nothing but a business logic of the requirment of an API. So, this method is defined to run as per the requirement of an API. This method will return the JSON format data. For that we need to render the result into JSON format.

    The above steps deals with the controller /api folder. Now, if someone wants to call a particular api method, for that we need to define in routes.

    The routes is used for calling an API methods defined inside the config/ routes.rb file of the ROR application.

    Route Example :

    namespace :api do

    resources :home, defaults: { format: 'json' } do

    collection do

    get 'business_details&:category_service&:city', to:'home#business_details'




    So, our calling URL for above step should be http://localhost:3000/api/home/business_details&Food andRestaurants&USA

    And result should be

    {“name”:“MacDonalds”, “address”:“New York, USA”}

    In the early days artists use to record songs and distribute on different DSP's which help them to make money. But, in an era of internet, distribution of songs on different DSPs is not sufficient for an Artist.. Social media presents an interesting opportunity. As music fans, most of us turn to Twitter or Facebook to keep updated about our favorite bands, whilst new tracks or videos will 99% of the time get their launch on social channels.

    Elasticsearch provides a powerful, RESTful HTTP interface for indexing and querying data, built on top of the Apache Lucene library. it provides scalable, efficient, and robust search, with UTF-8 support. It’s a powerful tool for indexing and querying massive amounts of structured data.

    Why Chewy?

    Despite Elasticsearch’s scalability and efficiency, integration it with Rails didn’t end up to be quite as straightforward as anticipated. And thus, the Chewy gem was born.

    A few notably noteworthy options of Chewy include:

    1. Each index is discernible by all the connected models:

    Most indexed models square measure associated with one another. And generally, it’s necessary to denormalize this connected information and bind it to a similar object (e.g., if you wish to index associate degree array of tags beside their associated article). Chewy permits you to specify associate degree updatable index for each model, thus corresponding articles are going to be re-indexed whenever a relevant tag is updated.

    2. Index categories square measure freelance from ORM/ODM models:

    With this improvement, implementing cross-model auto-completion, as an example, is far easier. you'll simply outline associate degree index and work with it in object-oriented fashion. not like alternative shoppers, the Chewy gem removes the requirement to manually implement index categories, information import callbacks, and alternative elements.

    3. Bulk import is everywhere:

    Chewy utilizes the majority Elasticsearch API for full re-indexing and index updates. It additionally utilizes the conception of atomic updates, aggregation modified objects among associate degree atomic block and change all of them right away.

    4. Chewy provides associate degree AR-style question DSL.

    By being chainable, mergable, and lazy, this improvement permits queries to be created in a very additional economical manner.

    In the prevailing technologically sound world paying due consideration on the quality of goods and services are very crucial for ensuring customer satisfaction. In addition, quality also maintains customer expectations, reputation, meeting standards and above all costs. Automated Code Quality Testing is a very popular concept in the Information Technology industry. Earlier, the concept of manual code quality testing was very popular but there were some limitations associated with the same, such as:

    • Manual code review is a slow process. On an average it covers only 100 to 200 lines per hour.
    • There were also various security related flaws in the testing process.
    • At a time human memory can keep seven items in memory that are helpful in performing the testing process but automated tools can keep hundreds or even thousands of criteria. This indeed does not eliminate the need of human reviewer, as they are the one can produce both false positive as well as false negative testing reports.

    Moving ahead with the automated code reviewing tools, there are various tools that are available in the market that claims to offer efficient code quality testing. List of popular tools comprise of TraceRoute, Rack-Mini-Profiler, Brakeman, DeadWeight, CodeClimate, RubyCritic, Rails Best Practices and more.

    Most of the tools that are mentioned above are paid and some does not ensure complete accuracy. However, Rails Best Practices is the one that helps in ensuring accurate result. Ruby on Rails is one of the niche technologies; there are very limited companies who work flawlessly on this technology.

    Cryptex Technologies is one of the most renowned companies that work on ROR and also religiously follow Rails Best Practices. The very reason why Cryptex Technologies have a stable clientele is because of the code quality they maintain for creating web and mobile applications.

    A productive framework has changed the rules of web development.

    Ruby on Rails is a framework innovation: it contains all the ingredients necessary to quickly build a web application performance. It is a tool designed in the spirit of agile development to deliver productivity and flexibility for development teams.

    Based on the Ruby development language, it has revolutionized the world of web development through its pragmatic approach.

    Ruby on Rails' philosophy is summarized by two principles:

    • "Never again" and it saves time, concentration and reduces code size.

    • "Convention over configuration": it is better to use the conventions that wasting time to configure.

    The advantages of Ruby on Rails:

    1 - Develop faster

    • Ruby on Rails is a compact language provided a clear and concise syntax: it produces less code than its competitors.

    • Less code to produce, so it's less time to code, less error-prone, less code to maintain.

    • Integrated tools for automating repetitive tasks: creating a form, management of database error handling...

    • Developments are simpler because the code is lightweight and easily readable, the closest possible human syntax.

    2 - Gain productivity

    Everything has been designed to minimize the development part of a project and maximize the part creativity and originality of the project. Developers focus on design rather than reinventing the wheel with each new project. They are gaining more productivity by eliminating repetitive tasks and find the pleasure of coding.

    3 - Check the code quality

    Ruby on Rails has a test framework built checking code quality. With each new code change, it is verified and validated. Errors are reported as and when the programming and can be quickly corrected. This ensures high code quality.

    4 - Create interactive interfaces

    The technologies needed to program rich interface are integrated and activated on demand. With integrated javascript framework is easy to activate features drag & drop, apparitions progressive elements, zoom.

    5 - Structuring the development

    Ruby on Rails is based on the design template "Model-View-Controller" that separates the application from the data, presentation and treatment. This requires the programmer to better structure the application and code in a logical and coherent. This encourages a higher level of abstraction in programming the application, thanks to high-level functions to focus on features rather than on the details.

    Ruby on Rails developers working in varying regions of India have taken steps to write web applications in Ruby programming language that helps in communication between stakeholders, and helps to maintain high code quality with a very good standard. It is commonly termed as ROR and is an object oriented program language. It is only because of Ruby on Rails the web application has been created.

    Benefits and Advantages of Ruby on Rails

    At some purpose in each Rails application's life, you'll have to perform some reasonably maintenance or code update that may need taking your application offline for a short span of time. There square measure strategies to attain zero-downtime deployments, however typically it's simply easier to require your application offline for five minutes throughout a preparation. If you recognize that no-one is writing information into the info, then you do not need to worry regarding synchronizing information or merging info backups back in once your deployment is finished. It simply makes life less complicated in cases once a number of minutes of time period is appropriate.

    But, throughout this "dark period" once your application is offline, you must still offer your users some notice of what's happening, and after they will expect the upkeep amount to finish.

    Quick-Start with Turnout

    The turnout gem makes it straightforward to quickly place up a friendly maintenance page for your users, and block access to all or any routes at identical time (to forestall writes to your database).

    • Easy installation
    • Rake commands to show maintenance mode on and off
    • Easily offer a reason for every time period while not writing the upkeep.html file
    • Allow sure information sciences or IP ranges to bypass the upkeep page
    • Allow sure methods to be accessible throughout maintenance
    • Easily override the default maintenance.html file together with your own

    In your Gemfile add:

    gem "turnout"

    then run

    bundle install


    rake maintenance:start reason="We're updating our site, please check back in 5 minutes"

    In the recent few years, Ruby on Rails has become one of the productive frameworks to bring drastic revolutions in the rules of web application development. In fact, ROR development now works as a framework innovation and contains each necessary ingredients or resources that will help in creation of a high performance of web application.

    Especially, Ruby on Rails developed by one of the reputable companies as Cryptex Technologies serves as an innovative tool aims at agile development and assures delivery of highest possible flexibility and productivity for various web development teams. Major contribution given by the technician team of Cryptex Technology to boost the productivity of website developers and application developers will include

    Database Access Library

    ROR has incorporated active record or database access library to allow simplification in the actual process related to handling of data contained in databases. Furthermore, this library maps different tables automatically into varying classes and in the same way, rows into different objects.

    Allows for Fast Development Process

    According to experienced web app developers, Ruby on Rails is a type of compact language that provides concise and clear syntax or produces relatively less code as compared to competitors available in the market. Less code obviously requires less time in coding job and less error prone towards less maintenance.

    Helps Boost in Productivity

    RORs available for web application development intends to reduce development job associated with any project and in turn, enhances originality and creativity. Hence, developers can easily focus on their designs instead of reinventing wheels with new projects.

    Customization Process is Possible

    Last, but not the least, Ruby on Rails developed by Cryptex Technologies allows users to develop wide range of search-engine friendly and personalized types of URLs.

    If you're new to programming in Ruby, here are the 3 tools you must know.


    The Ruby debugging tool can be found in the library file debug.rb. This tool will let you run your program one instruction at a time, with pauses in between. At every pause you can examine the values or variables of your code, locate your position in a series of nested commands and/or resume execution. You can also tell the debugger when to stop, more commonly known as breakpoints.

    Using a debugger varies from programmer to programmer. Just because a debugging facility is available for Ruby, it doesn't mean that a novice programmer should quickly adapt himself to using it at once. There are programmers who are comfortable using a debugger, some aren't. It's a matter of preference but at any rate, it's nice to know that there's a tool available for Ruby.


    Eventually, when you start writing longer programs, you'll want to measure how much resources, especially time, is used up by parts of your program or as a whole. This is called profiling.

    You can do profiling using the command $ ruby -r profile c2fi.rb Profiling identifies the areas in your program that are using up lots of the system resources. Having identified these areas, you need to re-code your program to make it run efficiently.


    Probably the coolest tool of them all, Ruby provides you with a program called ERb (Embedded Ruby), which allows you to put Ruby code inside an HTML file. You get to embed Ruby inside non-Ruby, and interprets the whole thing as program input.

    Ruby on Rails is becoming a popular choice for many programmers in India. Cryptex Technologies is having an experts team of Ruby on Rails Developers in india and delivers a bug free web app as well as mobile app.

    The music industry is growing by the day. Nowadays, music is available on digital channels. If you have iTunes installed in your mobile phones then you can listen to the music of your choice. A significant percentage of the global music industry revenue is obtained from digital channels. Out of them, a certain percentage comes from streaming services that are subscription based.

    If independent artists are contemplating of placing their music in digital stores then it can prove to be difficult, sometimes. It is because many stores do not accept submissions from independent artists. They focus on selling their music through a network of trusted companies. The concept of distributor is important thus. The distributors are entrusted with the task of getting the music to the stores. In the stores, nowadays, music is sold in compact discs, DVDs. In this context, it is relevant to state that there has been a sharp reduction in physical sales.

    Correspondingly, there has been an enhancement in digital revenues. Distributors that earlier focussed on physical products now offering distribution digitally. Considering all this, it makes sense that developing own distribution is more profitable. For instance, if you consider about revenues obtained in 2015, you will find about 20 billion i.e. about 5 billion higher as compared to the data obtained during the last year. In addition, experienced people of reputed music distribution application, like for instance Cryptex Group has predicted that the figure will reach at extremely high during the upcoming 2020.

    When talking about digital music, there is a broad variety of online stores and services, from where the distributors supply music. The stores deal with the distributors for proper delivery of the content. The different processes in the stores are run automatically. Having to handle a process manually is time consuming.

    Because of this, distributors have developed software to automate the processes. In addition, if labels and artists opt to sell their music contents to online distributors, they may have to give some percentage as share say 15 percent to distribution for selling of music collections. In this situation, far better option would be to develop own software and thereby, save few bucks.

    In contemporary times, the digital music distribution is quite popular. As already discussed, it is quite convenient and very much profitable.

    The framework of Ruby on Rails is a very powerful tool within the development of web applications. it's several integral options like object-relation plotter and intelligent routing that accelerate web applications development.

    Rails is specifically designed to own a simple extension with use of Ruby gems. an enormous system of Ruby gems has been created as a result of it. These gems will accelerate development method and extend application method by reducing time concerned to figure on common practicality development.


    Devise is the most gem on Rails. This gem provides authentication resolution that's convenience to use for Rails applications permitting registration, login, account locks, forget password, and different options associated with account.


    There is associate importance of knowing the distinction between authorization and authentication. Devise is that the one serving to within the authentication and verification of users whereas authorization is assures that users area unit allowed to perform any action or have access to any resource. Oundit is incharge of whole method and provides straightforward ways in which of describing authorization systems simply by the utilization of Ruby classes.


    Template systems area unit everyplace. Rails uses the model system of eRuby by default however it’s one thing that users usually opt to replace. Slim is taken into account as a standard replacement as a result of it's permitting users to keep up straightforward reading templates through its syntax whereas it maintains fast compilation times.


    Draper is that the gem that enables user to make decorators around their models. This gem makes views cleaner thus users area unit prevented to jot down helpers. instead of line of work helper on the models procedural, users outline the decorator wrapping the first model and giving the list of extended attributes and ways to things.


    Many application parts area unit typically re-used. Basically, partials area unit within the use of those behavior however users should take hold on partial calls and every one partial calls having consistent behavior. Cells enable users to require a part of controllers and encapsulate those in their own controller. By this, you'll be able to mark your own code cleaner and avoid helpers.


    URL resources area unit usually known by personal key, that is additionally the info ID. however this might result to un-optimized URLs of websites that aren’t that easy. FriendlyId will instantly rework URLs to a friendlier, straightforward to hit the books URLs thus there'll be no code changes on the appliance.

    Simple Form

    Forms are the core of web application. User interactions are sometimes done exploitation web forms. Simple form simplifies straightforward and repetitive tasks. It implements simple to use DSL in creating forms. Users pay lesser time on writing HTML for forms and have longer for the guts of the application’s business logic.


    It’s additionally exhausting to contend with file attachments as a result of they involve relevant work and time to implement them in an exceedingly secure manner. Paperclip takes charge of this method on Rails applications and extends time for thumbnails.


    This gem is the most popular having 5M downloads. This enables users to paginate from ActiveRecord relations to simple arrays using simple APIs fully agnistic to any template or ORM engine.


    This gem is that the most well liked in backgrounding tools. it's has simple API and scale even better than some background processors.

    Making use of these gems Cryptex Technologies ROR developers in India deliver an excellent bug free applications.

    Every developer needs programming for net applications to stay as straightforward because it will get. Most of them need to figure with a framework that's straightforward and simple to use. Similarly, each business needs a technology that helps it to save time. This is often wherever Ruby on Rails comes into image as it is a standard web application development framework extensively used in IT industry. The framework is incredibly useful to developers because it doesn't force them to jot down lines of codes for adding options and functionalities in websites and applications of clients' comes.

    More so, developers realize this framework not solely very simple to figure with however additionally fun for development functions. The framework is hot at the instant because it comes packed with AN array of useful options to feature tremendous price to websites and on-line applications. For net applications, Ruby on Rails is taken into account simply good because it fetches a operating example in a very super gait. It additionally provides developers the convenience of checking the practicability of net comes in a very hassle-free and simple manner. the most effective half, it permits fixing of cracks within the development cycle early - one thing not out there with different frameworks.

    Furthermore, businesses realize Ruby on Rails quite favorable because it helps them save lots of cash with their net comes.

    Big companies belonging to different parts of the world have already started trading with Bitcoin crypto currencies. However, now many small business owners and entrepreneurs are stepping forward to include this virtual currency in their own business activities. On 15th of June, a meeting takes place at the Hester Street Fair in New York City’s Lower East Side, where large numbers of artists, collectors and entrepreneurs have joined and planned to host NYC Bitcoin Fair for the year 2015.

    Here, individuals associated with trading and business activities will be able to find large numbers of technological enthusiasts, innovative companies dealing with the virtual currency of Bitcoin, meet-ups, traders and more than 30 different small-scale businesspeople selling their top quality of artisan goods and food items for Bitcoin.

    Suhyun Pak, who is one of the co-organizers of Hester Fair and Bitcoin Fair’s creator, commented, “Every Sunday, we will hold this fair to motivate online traders until 26th of October. This fair would definitely act as a perfect environment for the utilization of bitcoin. Majority of businesspeople attended the Hester Street Fair possess entrepreneurial feelings and have huge willingness to try innovative things. Even many of the attendees have shown huge excitements to stay at the fore front of new bitcoin trading technology.”

    Another update about bitcoin trading highlighted that on West Coast, large numbers of restaurants located in San Francisco have started trading with Bitcoin. In fact, many of them use its old payment system as Bitpay and use it for 1% of the total transaction fee. Especially, one such restaurant of San Francisco had been accepting Bitcoin virtual currency since past few months.

    Combining Perl-inspired syntax with features like those of Smalltalk, Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general purpose object-oriented scripting language. It was developed and designed on February 24, 1993 by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto in Japan. Perl, Smalltalk, Eiffel, Ada, and Lisp are the languages that it is based on.

    Including object oriented, functional, reflective, and imperative, multiple programming paradigms are supported by the script. Moreover, it has an automatic memory management and dynamic type system, which makes it analogous to CLU, Perl, Python, Dylan, and Lisp in varying respects.

    C was used to write the implementation of the standard 1.8.7, as a single-pass interpreted language. At present, no specification of the language exists, and hence the de facto reference is its original implementation. As of 2008, several of its alternative implementations have arrived including YARV, JRuby, Rubinius, IronRuby, and MacRuby. Each of its alternatives takes a special approach while just-in-time compilation is provided by JRuby and IronRuby. YARV is used by the official 1.9 branch. Version 2.0 which is in development is said to be using this also and is said to be finally superseding the slower MRI of the language.

    The concept that gave birth to the script was that there got to be a scripting language that balances functional programming with imperative programming. According to the designer and developer, Yukihiro, a scripting language that was more object-oriented than Python and more powerful than Perl was what he was looking for. And so he ended up creating the script. Yukihiro has stated that he designed the language from programmers' point of view as he believes that systems design should give emphasis to human needs more than computer needs. So, he followed the principles of good user interface design, and as a result it not only enhances a programmer's productivity, but most programmers find working with it a fun, cool thing.

    Rumor has it that Ruby follows the principle of least surprise (POLS) - the language behavior that minimizes confusion for experienced users. However, in a May 2005 discussion on the comp.lang.ruby newsgroup, Yukihiro tried to detach the script from POLS. Besides, he has stated that he had not applied the principle of least surprise to the design of the script. In spite of this, the script seems to be believed following POLS among some programmers.

    Features of Ruby:

    Following are the features of the script:

    • Object-oriented
    • DLL/Shared library dynamic loading on most platforms
    • Six levels of variable scope
    • global
    • class
    • class instance
    • instance
    • local
    • block
    • Exception management
    • Methods can be called without parentheses, making Ruby trendy for putting into operation Domain Specific Languages
    • Automatic garbage assembling
    • Iterators and conclusions
    • Indigenous, Perl-like standard terminology at the language level
    • Operative overfilling
    • Greatly portable
    • Two-way multi-threading on all platforms by means of green threads
    • Introspection, reflection and meta-programming
    • Big standard library
    • Sustains reliance injection
    • Sustains object runtime modification

    Bitcoin crypto currency has recently succeeded itself in picking up few of the prominent followers belonging to the technological circles. This digital currency has demonstrated surprisingly high levels of durability in between online traders, leading to the development of curiosity in between top-class websites and search engine giant as Google.

    Google Idea and Google Inc Reports

    According to the director of Google Ideas Group named Jared Cohen, “It is obvious to each individual that crypto currency as bitcoin is an inevitable one.” Majority of individuals belonging to film, music and technological festival’s attendees have given their support to the statement given by Mr. Cohen. In addition, Eric Schmidt, the Chairperson of Google Inc had aimed to promote new book of Google Group as “New Digital Age.” However, director of Google confirmed that one should never interpret it as endorsement from the search engine giant group.

    Wikipedia’s Key Findings about Bitcoin

    Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of Wikipedia is now doing experiments with the bitcoin digital currency. Last week, his tweet revealed that the Bitcoin wallet Mr. Wales addressed and received more than 3,000 dollars or approximately 5 BTCs in combination with valuable donations from enthusiasts of digital currency. Other than this, Jimmy posted over Bitcoin Reddit about his plans to re-open crucial discussion related to acceptance of Bitcoin in combination with board of directors working under Wikipedia Foundation. Lastly, political feedback about Bitcoin highlighted that Bitcoin possesses the potential to undergo significant development in the crypto currency and online trading industry.

    The objective oriented programming language Ruby is the combination of both Static and Dynamic programming languages designed in the Rails framework. There are many pre designed data modules available in ruby that is defined with specific codes. A user has the accessibility of codes and can script the codes based on the requirements.

    RoR is an open source platform therefore; users will have a wide range of options and modules to choose. The RoR is one of the strongest and most active web development communities on the web. There are many RoR programmers located in various parts of the world offering 24/7 support and solutions for RoR. RoR developers in India are among the most appreciated community members. Along with them, the users themselves have the option to contribute in the open source community and interact with the members.

    In the RoR open source community, the users have access to various available modules, themes and codes. They can use all of them to design a much better website in a very less time. Most of the modules available on this platform are free, though some of them are paid. More importantly, users or programmers can access through several videos and tutorials in the community and learn more about RoR. It is by far the easiest way to design a website with full functionality.

    RoR is growing and progressing every day. It is been serving the website programmers n developers since over a decade. In the coming years, there would be more upgraded features available to the users to create a highly user friendly and attractive website.

    Web development has better a significant meaning in the world of business at the present time, owing to its probable to send worth added services to the client. From business improvement viewpoint, a client or an industry owner is in look into of tools that automate his each day business process such as customer association, register control, a full and total ERP, and maintain organization control panel and situation to deliver exact business snapshots. Maintenance this insignificant want in the brain, a client seeks reliable vendors who can automate this ordinary procedure and free to believe the efforts on commerce development. It is well recognized that 20% of efforts place in trade must deliver 80% of the result. Web development solutions approve the business owners to reach this intended goal.

    On the other hand, the most brilliant solution would be to subcontract the growth to someone who is reliable and has made a status all the way through their terrific work. The progress of web growth outsourcing and Ruby on Rails Development in India is seeing on adding to for a variety of beneficial reasons it provides to the customer. The seller as long as PHP development in India, ROR development, or additional prospect and latest technological platforms has been the utmost advantage to a customer. The developers in India are well-informed and clever at their technical skills and are alongside with the ground-breaking inventions that keep on incidence.

    Companies have 2 alternatives to get a reliable and appearance driven web realize. Either it can employ developers as domestic supply or delegate the project to a web increase company. Developers using information platforms such as ruby on rails (ROR), PHP, for web development are available, though the knowledge and the aptitude to bring exceptional projects are essential. While commerce plans to employ ruby on rails developer, it have to determine the ability of the applicant all through earlier work talented or allocate a mock progress that will help determining expertise sets. If you decide to hire a a professional of Ruby on Rails Development in India or any additional region of technological experience, it is very significant to know these qualities.

    A web development effort can be of diverse needs. It can be website enlargement or a web application. Equally the utilities have a well-known function to have fun and give towards the business procedure. Getting a high presentation leaning web development scheme is fundamental to get top benefits. A flawed web tool which has limits on its arrangement would not be of any utilize and it would be an ineffective effort on the element of the developer to use time on an adequate project.

    Ruby on Rails is source of web application development framework that uses Ruby programming language. Ruby on Rails normally is known as ROR or Rails.

    Latest Survey and Benefits

    Based on this, musical industry experienced meteoric rise during the past few decades. According to latest reports, revenue from international level of digital music succeeded to reach more than 400 millions of dollars during the last few years. In fact, musical collections shared with the help of websites give huge benefits to both music lovers and artists or labels, which include.

    For Labels/Artists

    Good websites with options to upload songs and musical collections to be distributed into different channels provide best platform for labels or artists to display their skills and innovation to musical enthusiasts worldwide. Unlike traditional methods of selling CDs and cassettes to a limited area, digital music platform provides artists with an efficient medium to gain popularity at international level and at the same time, a powerful gateway to earn millions of dollars.

    For Music Lovers/Audiences

Secondly, the digital sites let music enthusiasts to choose countless numbers of songs sung by their favorite artists regardless any physical boundary. Hence, in this way, digital era has brought drastic revolution in the musical industry as a whole.

    Cucumber is a tool that executes plain-text functional descriptions as automated tests. While Cucumber can be thought of as a “testing” tool, the intent of the tool is to support BDD This means that the “tests” (plain text feature descriptions with scenarios) are typically written before anything else and verified by business analysts, domain experts, etc. non technical stakeholders.


    Gherkin is the language used to write features, scenarios, and steps. The purpose of the language is to help us write concrete requirements.

    4 Steps in Defining a Feature
    • Cucumber begins by defining a “Feature” that we are trying to implement.
    • After that we specify what we want to do using “In Order”.
    • The we specify a user who will be interacting with that feature using “As a”
    • And then we finally specify what do we expect using “I want”

    Feature: User login In order to login As a User I want to specify a valid credential and login

    Cucumber steps
    • Cucumber internally uses capybara
    • You can use any other acceptance test framework e.g. Webrat
    • Capybara makes it possible to restrict certain actions, such as interacting with forms or clicking links and buttons, to within a specific area of the page
    • You can use within DSL to specify a scope e.g. within(“#form-group”)
    • You can also further restrict it to a table e.g. within_table(“customer-table”)

    Both significant factors in software performance are size of the database and program structure. Let's identify the reasons that hinder the applications performance and executive solutions and techniques to improve applications performance. Factors that hinder performance of RoR applications:

    • Variety of a slow period container
    • More use of inefficient helper methods
    • Execution of duties on per request most basic rather than calling everything necessary during startup - Browsing frequently and too many from database
    • Replication of identical computation while processing requests

    If you give attention to the condition areas described above, you can certainly boost the performance of Rails Development applications. Better Session container:

    Rails framework comes with several built-in session containers. PStore and ActiveRecordStore are two broadly used containers. PStore stores session information in a separate file while ActiveRecordStore stores session information in the database. Both treatment containers slow down action-cached pages, which degrade application performance. You have two better alternatives SQLSessionStore and MemCacheStore. These alternatives increase the performance of action-cached web pages resulting in faster execution of the code that boosts application performance. Reading Cached data:

    You should not use class-level caching if you are using same data repeatedly during one process requests. You can simply read the data in the cache, which is much faster and prevents repeated calculations. Get independent computations at startup company:

    If any data does indeed not change or any difference in it requires hardware startup, you can refuge this data in some variable in some course of application. Another option is to disable working in Ruby on Bed rails for each action most basic by using silence method. Optimize queries:

    Rails have well-defined associations between model classes. Yet , the built-in made accessors are not optimized for performance. The generated accessor methods cause N number of additional queries to the data source and thereby degrading the performance of the program. You are able to resolve this performance issue by adding an: include =>: author to your query parameters, which results in single SQL statement and immediate development of author objects. Keeping away from the use of slower helpers:

    All helpers in Rails invoke the course-plotting module to work with URL. The process of invoking routing module and under-going several routes in the road file is a time-consuming process. Rather, you can code the piece in HTML immediately and avoid the stop helper. Optimizing a data source:

    Interacting with a repository is a time-consuming process and frequent querying the database severely degrades the performance of the RoR application. Reducing the quantity of SQL queries is one way to increase the performance of RoR app. The other way is optimizing the database, that can be done by following activities:

    • Remove unused indices
    • Add appropriate indices for foreign and private keys and fields used in filtering assertions
    • Revise and optimize SQL queries
    • Partition large tables
    • Use stored procedures
    • Use excited loading of organizations
    • Avoid use of orders when not necessary

    Cryptex Technologies ROR developers in India is regularly keep updating on improving application.performance.

    Spree is a complete open supply e-commerce solution build with Ruby on Rails. If you wish to show a Rails app into a store that sells merchandise, then Spree is one in all the fastest ways to this.

    It really consists of many totally different gems, every of that square measure maintained in an exceedingly single repository and documented in an exceedingly single set of on-line documentation.

    You automatically require all of the below necessary gem dependencies when you use spree:

    • spree_api
    • spree_cmd
    • spree_core
    • spree_dash
    • spree_promo
    • spree_sample

    All of the gems are designed to figure along to supply a completely practical e-commerce platform. It is also possible, however, to use only the pieces you are interested in. So for example, you could use just the barebones spree_core gem and perhaps combine it with your own custom promotion scheme instead of using spree_promo.

    Installing Spree

    Spree depends on ImageMagick to handle the image process it will thus we’ll need to install it before we are able to install Spree. The simplest way to do this is to use HomeBrew.

    Cryptex Technologies make use of spree in building several e commerce websites.

    When you transfer your latest app to a production server and open it up to the globe, you are extremely throwing your app to the elements - smart and unhealthy. If you do not pay any attention to security whatever, you are possible to fall foul of some cracker's villainous theme and your users are protestant when something does not work or they are being spammed with pots of gold to share. however what to do?

    There are some precautions to be taken while before launching any application. Our ROR developers in India pay attentions to the following points for security:

    • Some attributes should be uneditable, it will only be read only
    • For security updates and patches dependencies will be check.
    • For user equipped URLs avoids redirection.
    • Beware of mass assignments.
    • Avoid using user params or content within the send_file technique.
    • All non-ActionController methods make private.
    • Avoid storing the password in database.
    • Filter sensitive parameters from the logs.
    • Pay attention to CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery) and use protect_from_forgery and csrf_meta_tag.
    • Pay attention to XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) and use the h helper in views
    • Don't trust logged in users.

    Ruby concurrency is when two tasks will begin, run, and complete in overlapping time periods. It doesn’t essentially mean, though, that they’ll ever each be running at a similar instant (e.g., multiple threads on a single-core machine). In distinction, correspondence is once 2 tasks virtually run at a similar time (e.g., multiple threads on a multicore processor).

    Multiple Processes vs. Multithreading: Processes:
    • Uses a lot of memory
    • If parent dies before kids have exited, kids will become zombie processes
    • More expensive for forked processes to modify context since OS has to save and reload everything
    • Forked processes ar given a brand new computer storage area
    • Requires inter-process communication
    • Slower to make and destroy
    • Easier to code and correct
    • Uses less memory
    • All threads die once the method dies
    • Threads have significantly less overhead since they share address area and memory
    • Threads share a similar memory, thus have to be compelled to management and affect synchronous memory problems
    • Can "communicate" via queues and shared memory
    • Faster to make and destroy
    • Can be considerably a lot of advanced to code and correct
    Examples of Ruby solutions that use multiple processes:

    Resque: A Redis-backed Ruby library for making background jobs, inserting them on multiple queues, and process them later.

    Unicorn: AN protocol server for Rack applications designed to solely serve quick shoppers on low-latency, high-bandwidth connections and profit of options in Unix/Unix-like kernels.

    Examples of Ruby solutions that use multithreading:

    Sidekiq: A full-featured backgrounding framework for Ruby. It aims to be easy to integrate with any trendy Rails application and far higher performance than different existing solutions.

    Puma: A Ruby internet server engineered for concurrency.

    Thin: a awfully quick and easy Ruby internet server.

    Elasticsearch provides a robust, quiet hypertext transfer protocol interface for assortment and queryinEg knowledge, designed on high of the Apache Lucene library. Right out of the box, it provides scalable , efficient, and strong search, with UTF-8 support. It’s a robust tool for assortment and querying huge amounts of structured knowledge.

    Basic Ideas of Elastic search:

    Cluster: A cluster may be a assortment of nodes that hold knowledge. It provides assortment and search capabilities across all nodes and is known by a novel name.

    Node: A node may be a single server that's a part of the cluster, stores the information, and participates within the cluster’s assortment and search capabilities.

    Index: associate index may be a assortment of documents with similar characteristics, like client knowledge or order knowledge. It’s sort of a electronic information service, with mappings that outline multiple sorts.

    Type: There are often multiple sorts inside associate index. as an example, in our application we've the GetCount index, that has totally different sections like active user count and inactive user count.

    Document:A document may be a basic unit of knowledge that may be indexed. it's sort of a row during a table during a electronic information service, like knowledge for a client or product, and is delineated in JSON format. we are able to have multiple documents in associate index, however they need to be indexed to a kind inside associate index.

    Shards and Replicas: associate index will probably store an outsized quantity of knowledge surpassing hardware limits. Elastic Search provides the flexibility to divide indexes into multiple items known as shards, that permits the content to scale horizontally. Elastic Search conjointly permits users to form copies of index shards, that square measure known as replicas.

    Elasticsearch also can be used as data store engine, however it's some disadvantages:

    Security - Elasticsearch doesn't offer any internal security or access system. the sole thanks to shield metal from external access is with a firewall.

    Computation – there's restricted support for advanced computation on the info facet.

    Data handiness – knowledge in Elasticsearch is offered in "near real time", - which means that if you submit a comment to a post and refresh the page, it would not show up because the index remains change.

    Durability – metal is distributed and comparatively stable, however backups don't seem to be as high priority as in different knowledge store solutions. this can be a crucial thought once Elasticsearch is your primary knowledge store.

    Cryptex Technologies Ruby on Rails Developers in india takes a special care while using elastic search.

    Rails is constructed on the principle of convention over configuration. Simply put, this suggests that, by default, Rails assumes that its professional developers can follow “standard” best observe conventions and, if you do, things can work for you “auto-magically” while not your desperate to specify these details. whereas this paradigm has its benefits, , it is also not without its pitfalls.

    There are some Common Mistakes That Rails Developers Make:

    1. Putting too much logic in the controller:

    The problem is that the controller object can begin to violate the one responsibility principle creating future changes to the code base troublesome and fallible. Generally, the only types of logic you must have in your controller are:

    • Session and cookie handling
    • Model selection
    • Request parameter management
    • Rendering/redirecting
    2. Putting too much logic in the view

    The out-of-the-box Rails templating engine, ERB, may be a good way to create pages with variable content. However, if you’re not careful, you'll be able to presently find yourself with an outsized file that's a combination of hypertext markup language and Ruby code that may be tough to manage and maintain. this is often additionally a locality that may result in numerous repetition, resulting in violations of DRY (don’t repeat yourself) principles.

    3. Putting too much logic in the model

    Many Rails developers truly build the error and find yourself sticking out everything in their ActiveRecord model categories resulting in Mongolian monetary unit files that not solely violate the only responsibility principle however also are a maintenance nightmare.

    The only logic that should remain in your model is:

    • ActiveRecordconfiguration
    • Simple mutation methods
    • Access wrappers
    • Sophisticated queries
    4: Ignoring your log files

    While most Rails developers are aware of the default log files accessible throughout development and in production, they typically don’t pay enough attention to the knowledge in those files. whereas several applications have faith in log observation tools like Honeybadger or New Relic in production, it's conjointly necessary to stay an eye fixed on your log files throughout the method of developing and testing your application.

    5. Using too many gems

    Excessive use of gems makes the scale of a Rails method larger than it has to be. this could cut down performance in production. additionally to user frustration, this could additionally lead to the necessity for larger server memory configurations and enlarged in operation prices. It additionally takes longer to begin larger Rails applications, that makes development slower and makes machine-driven tests take longer (and as a rule, slow tests merely don’t get run as often).

    Refactoring modifies software to improve its readability, maintainability, and extensibility without changing what it actually does. Its external behavior does NOT change but its internal structure is improved.

    Benefits of Refactoring:
    • Code size is often reduced
    • Confusing code is restructured into simpler code
    • Refactoring is technique to help you discover problems in design and implementation
    Code Examples

    class Invoice < ActiveRecord::Base

    belongs_to :user



    <%= %>

    <%= @invoice.user.address %>


    class Invoice < ActiveRecord::Base

    belongs_to :user

    delegate :name, :address, :cellphone, :to => :user, :prefix => true



    <%= @invoice.user_name %> <%= @invoice.user_address %>

    When do I refactor?
    • When you add functionality
    • When you need to fix a bug
    • When you do a peer review
    Code Optimization Tools:
    • Traceroute
    • Rack-Mini-Profiler
    • Bullet
    • Brakeman
    • Deadweight
    • Rails Best Practices
    • Rubocop
    • Rubycritic

Now, you can only create one application and integrate the same with different LMS through LTI. LTI integration allows the seamless application to connect to any LMS which supports the LTI standard. Some of the third party tool which supports LTI are chat application, video, online publisher content, plagiarism detection services, portfolio solutions, online tutoring services, and many more.

    LTI(Learning Tools Interoperability) is a standard way of integrating third party learning application with platforms like LMS and other learning object repositories. With the help of LTI you can easily integrate external tools or applications for example Google Hangout into your Learning Management System.


    LTI provides the following benefits:

    • Helps in integration of a range of instructional applications, learning tools and content into the LMS.
    • Enables immediate use by college or students, returns the outcomes information and analytics across a large kind of learning tools, applications, and content to LMS.
    • A single sign-on on-line setting for all users.
    • Reduces the quantity of custom integrations needed for product developers as a result of each application interfaces within the same means.

    Our qualified development team is expert in integrating LTI with any LMS as well as experts in developing applications that supports LTI.

    Code review is meant to seek out and fix mistakes unnoticed within the initial development part, improving both the overall quality of software and the developers’ skills.

    Code Reviews Play Higher Estimates

    Estimation could be a team exercise,and therefore the team makes higher estimates as product information is unfold across the team. After adding new features to an existing code, the first developer will give smart feedback and estimation. Additionally, any code reviewer is additionally exposed to the quality, noted problems, and issues of that area of the code base. The code reviewer, then, shares within the information of the first developer of that a part of the code base. This apply creates multiple, wise inputs that, once used for a final estimate continually makes that estimate stronger and reliable.

    Code Reviews Alter Time without Work

    Nobody likes to be the only real purpose of contact on a chunk of code. Likewise, no one desires to dive into a crucial piece of code they didn’t write–especially throughout a production emergency. Code reviews share information across the team so any team member will take up the reins and continue steering the ship. However here's the point: with no single developer the toughest path, it conjointly suggests that team members will take time without workPRN. Code review is the best way to refresh your mind.

    Code Reviews Mentor Newer Engineers

    A special side of agile is that once new members be part of the team additional seasoned engineers mentor the newer members. And code review helps facilitate conversations regarding the code base. Often, groups have hidden information among the code that surfaces throughout code review. Newer members, with recent eyes, discover knotted, time-plauged areas of the code base that require a brand new perspective. So, code review conjointly helps guarantee new insight is tempered with existing information.

    Mobile Application Testing is a process by which a developed application of a mobile device is tested for its functionality, Consistency, Usability.

    Types of Mobile Application Testing

    1. Functional Testing

    The Functional testing of mobile app normally consists in the area of user interactions as well as transactions. Functional testing includes :-

    • Validation of required mandatory fields.
    • Validation of application allows social network options such as sharing, posting, & navigation.
    • To Validate whether the application works as per as requirement whenever the application starts/stops.
    • To validate whether the phone is able to store, process and receive SMS whenever the app is running.
    • To validate that the application supports any payment gateway transaction such as Visa, Mastercard, Paypal etc as required by the application.

    Ruby on Rails is the acronym for ROR that serves as a framework of open source web application written mainly in Ruby programming language. This framework helps users to create internet applications and dynamic websites irrespective of the complexity associated with the project. The framework mainly resides on restful application design, while the creation of its software architecture remains across client-server relationships.

    Key Principles of the Technique

    Ruby on Rails operate with two key principles, where first one is do not repeat oneself and the second one implies convention rather than configuration, which make them relatively more efficient and less complicated from various other types of open source frameworks. In addition, ROR framework sidelines various prior assumptions and open new ways to design web applications emphasizing mainly on simplicity.

    Benefits of Ruby on Rails

    Until now, ROR has fulfilled large numbers of applications for modern business, based on which it has become popular in the web development industry. These are:

    Market Launch Quickly as Possible

    Programming process associated with Ruby on Rails mainly takes place at relatively fast rate and code length reduced to a huge extent. This leads to very less possible consumption of time related to website development process and thereby, launch of new website in the market within less possible duration.

    Content Management

    Whenever you intend to supply the website with video and audio files, ROR becomes an ideal choice, which provides users with easy navigation facilities at the time of browsing any website. If this is not enough, Ruby on Rails never allows users to compromise on scalability and performance associated with designed websites.

    Digital music distribution has recently brought unprecedented and radical variations in the entire music industry. It has given the sector an entirely new dimension and high pedestal undated within the entire history of music. In other words, musical business has achieved a significant facelift with the availability of digital distribution platform.

    Digitization Leads to Large Numbers of Audience Worldwide

    Innovative digital distribution technology allows artists to rip and compress their artwork and thereby, to send over a specific network. This leads to the creation of large numbers of audiences for music and songs even for various unfamiliar languages. In this way, music received a huge exposure in the digital platform.

    Lets Artists to Promote Musical Collections

    Framework of music has recently undergone significant variation. The reason for this is that several musicians now started promotion of their music live and music labels usually encourage them to open and operate their own downloadable stores. Before the concept of digitization, most of the labels, singers and individual artists have to rely on sales of their recorded labels. However, nowadays, sales and release of album no longer remain in hands of labels, as they easily put out their collections, albums and similar others with less possible upfront investments. Therefore, artists and labels have the opportunity to market and promote their collections directly to the music platforms. Lastly, digital distribution system assure for secured payment methods and other special benefits in the form of royalty processing, load balancing, auto correct options, all of which inspire people to go for digital music distribution.

    Exceptions are equally old as programming. It’s an amazing fact that since the time programming was done using basic primary level programming language, exceptions were used to make some required alternations in the program flow. This further helped in avoiding failure. “Exception handling is the process of responding to the occurrence, during computation, of exceptions – anomalous or exceptional conditions requiring special processing – often changing the normal flow of program execution”.

    Exceptions require special treatment because unhandled exceptions can cause unforeseen behavior, which is difficult to handle. The best example of unhandled overflow exception was the famous Ariane 5 rocket launch, which failed.

    Efficient Exception Handling Is Very Beneficial

    The programming world is moving more towards OOP i.e. object-oriented programming hence, exception support has become an inevitable aspect of modern programming languages. Vigorous exception handling systems has been developed for different languages, one of the best example is Ruby.

    It’s not necessary that codes always have some problem. They may seem perfect but in due course of time it can cause code errors, which can further cause harm to the code base.

    There are different recommended practices that help in embracing exceptions:

    Maintainability: With this, bugs can easily spotted and fixed without hampering the functionality.

    Extensibility: This helps in adding extra elements in the existing code base, which can be further implemented without causing any damage to the existing functionality.

    Create your own Application Error Hierarchy

    Almost all the programming languages come with a variety of exception classes that are evenly organized in an inheritance hierarchy just similar to any OOP class. In order to preserve the Maintainability and Extensibility of codes it is very crucial to create own sub-tree of application-specific exceptions that can be extended further. Hence, devoting some time to construct own hierarchy can be very beneficial.

    Cryptex Technologies makes use of all the industry sound practices for having an efficient programming work flow.

    These days, the term wire frames is frequently used by people in the software industry. Wire frames actually act as a bridge between creative thoughts and the final output. Wire frames are equally important in development projects just like blueprints are there in the architectural field. Just in life it is not possible to build a sound building with a blueprint, similarly it is not possible to develop effective software without wire frames.

    Web development and software rely to a great extent on wire frames for ensuring the appealing visual representation. The main reason behind this is that wire frames perfectly communicate the different components, relations and processes with a system.

    Let’s take a look on some of the stone breaking benefits of wire-frames:

    • Project stakeholders plan and strategize will always be on time and will never get delayed.
    • Developers will also be able to account the expected outcomes, on using the different components of the system.
    • Projects developed by using wire frames have sound interface, hence, the cost of revision come to minimum.

    There are some justified reasons why project managers and developers pay due stress on the use of wire-frames for the development process.

    Wire frames can be as simple as hand-drawn diagrams that provide an appropriate visual effect of the system in process. The visual representations need not to be in detail and that is why experts refer them as a skeleton. From development point of view, wire-frames give an exact idea about the spacing, position and navigation of the website. Hence, things become very easy.

    Cryptex Technologies is one of the renewed names in the field of software industry; they religiously follow the concept of making wire frames before starting with the development process. That is why the applications developed by them are more effective and user friendly.

    With every passing day, the demand for effective web applications are increasing at a very faster rate. Considering the stiff competition that is prevailing in the software industry, people look for output in the minimum possible time frame. In order to facilitate software companies in the fast development process some hosting services have been introduced. These web based hosting services provide web based repository for distribution revision control and source code management. There are many such online hosting services available but the most popular ones are Github, Bitbucket and Gitlab. Developers can use these software development tools for storing their codes for future reference.

    The main advantage of using Github is that it is a distributed version control system. If some server dies, and these systems were collaborating with it, any of the client repositories can be copied back up to the server to restore it. You can also collaborate with different groups of people in different ways simultaneously within the same project.

    There are a number of benefits of having a secured access to code repository:

    • It keep the track of your changes , admin can track the who added or deleted the codes.
    • These are version control. You can always go back to a previously committed code, or just recover certain files from a previous commit.
    • It superseded previous version control systems like CVS and SVN.
    • You can also easily provide access to other users, both on and off campus instead of needing to email or copy to a sharing service like dropbox.
    • It's helpful for people collaborating with other people.
    • It is very useful for working with distributed location.

    Initially, some doubts were raised on the accessibility of the codes by different location. However, the concerned was resolved in a way that admin of the repository can access the repository from anywhere. They can simply log in to the respective hosting service provider such as Github, Bitbucket or Gitlab with the credentials.

    Now, one common question that may strike the mind of majority of people is regarding the security codes stored in these sources. Well, answer to this question is that all these sources are very much secured because of limited access. It is admin who have all the rights to share the access and can do anything with the codes.

    Cryptex Technologies, is one of the renowned software companies that have their own Gitlab server where they store their codes. These codes are solely used for their in house projects. This also helps them in saving considerable amount of among on Github and Bit-basket.

    A test case is a components that describes an input, action or event and an expected outcome, to determine if a feature of an application is working as it is meant to or not.

    Many times test cases are rejected because of its bad quality of writing. In order to write a good test cases we must depend on a process rather than a person. Test-cases makes a proof of your work done on testing. It also helps to make a systematic approach as well as make the test-case re-usable for anyone.

    Here are some effective features of writing test-case:

    1. Test Case Naming Conventions

    Name the test cases in such a way that anyone else can also refer that in future.

    E.g. There is a project called “Admin” which has a functional area named “Login”. Use naming convention which will give a brief idea of what the test is for, just by looking at its name.

    like TC_01_Admin_Login

    2. Test Case Description

    Test-cases description should define “What you are going to test?”

    E.g. Verify on entering more than 255 characters in First Name field during Sign Up, gives error message.

    3. Assumptions and Preconditions

    Make sure to add as much information as possible for any conditions to be met before running the test case.

    4. Test Input Data

    Give Test Data wherever applicable.

    5. Test Steps

    It describes the execution steps:

    Eg: Enter data in "First Name" text box, Click on "Save" Button etc.

    6. Expected Result

    Each test step should mention what you expect as outcome of that verification step.

    7. Maintenance & Updates

    Make sure that the Test Cases are always updated whenever you newly introduced changes in the application.

    In Cryptex Technologies, we pay a special attention in writing test-case after the analysis and before any development process starts.

    The constant slowdown in the growth of money supply has significantly contributed in raising the demand and price of Bitcoin. Experts believe that will witness a record increase in the price of Bitcoin and it will not be because of any unethical reason but solely because of the above mentioned reason i.e. slow down in the supply of money.

    Bitcoin is a renowned Cryptocurrency that is used for transferring money instantly without the involvement of any central authority. Most of the people consider Bitcoin as a popular future Digital currency. In fact, Bitcoin has become very popular and common in the ecommerce industry. It is one of the chief reasons why most of the experts are looking forward to 2016 are the different factors that will drive Bitcoin in a superfast speed. Further, using Bitcoin for making transaction requires a payment gateway. Cryptex Technologies holds expertise in developing payment gateway for secured Bitcoin transactions. Statistics reveal the continuous and steady growth in the use of Bitcoin for making transactions. In July 2013, rate of Bitcoin transaction was 97.91 million, in 2014 it increased to 636.26 million and in February 2016 it was 112.4.79 million. This clearly shows that this 2016 Bitcoin will witness further growth. Production of Bitcoin is controlled by an online mining process that is initiated by solving complicated mathematical puzzles. The one who solve the puzzle in the least possible time frame is rewarded with twenty five new Bitcoins. This is the way Bitcoin was introduced and after the evolution of Bitcoin drastic elevation was observed in the popularity of the same.

    The most interesting aspect of Bitcoin is the fact that the value of Bitcoin is never static, instead, it keeps on changing. With the constant increase in the value of Bitcoin is also a contributing source that leads to the higher demand for Bitcoin in 2016.

    The laterals of web development have been drastically changed after the introduction of a highly productive framework. Ruby on Rails is the most productive framework that comprise of all the requirements that must have for enhancing web application performance. This tool is designed in the spirit of agile development to render flexibility and to control developers. Using Ruby as development language the technology has simply overpowered the development sector via its practical approach. Let’s take a look on some of the benefits Offered by ruby on rails web development services.

    Faster Development:

    Language Ruby provides a concise symmetry that helps in using less code for the development process. As density of codes is less, so the time required for the coding also reduces gradually. Development process is very simple because codes used development is lightweight and readable.

    Check the code quality:

    Ruby on Rails has a framework that helps in checking code quality. With every new code used, it is first verified and then effectively validated. Errors are quickly reported and fixed during programming. This way high code quality is ensured.

    Create interactive interfaces:

    Technologies that are required for programming fast interface and integrated are further activated when on demand. With finely integrated javascript framework it is very easy to activate the feature and turn off when required.

    Structuring the development:

    Ruby on Rails follow a template name ‘MVC’ i.e. ‘Model View Controller’. This MVC separates data from presentation and treatment. This requires developer to structure the codes in a logical manner. Cryptex Technologies provide all the above mentioned benefits in all the web and mobile applications developed by them using Ruby on Rails.

    Ruby on Rails is really the joining of a programming dialect called Ruby with a web programming structure named Rails. Ruby was created in the 90's and turned into a clique most loved that some way or another stayed out of the standard top-level status. The structure Rails was initially created for in-house ventures in 2004 and was composed in Ruby. Ruby on Rails, or RoR, is an open source web improvement structure written in an article arranged programming dialect. It has helped in the advancement of easily effective and comprehensive web applications that esteem intuitiveness and usefulness.

    A standout amongst the most appealing components that see the inquisitive needing to thoroughly understand Ruby on Rails is the manner by which it rearranges the route in which code is composed, henceforth permitting web applications to worked without any difficulty. The way it works is that Rails stresses tradition over design. By staying away from tradition where it can, ruby on Rails developers in India applications require just a small amount of the arrangement code contrasted with its Java partners, in this manner sparing time and expanding profitability.

    Where arrangement must be indicated, the software engineer can depend on Ruby to give said setup. In this way, RoR permits software engineers more opportunity to tailor applications and projects to customers' particulars instead of be stalled by the fundamental yet unwieldy parts of routine coding. RoR is picking up in prominence since web applications can be worked with it substantially more effectively and inside of a shorter time. Something that would take a tenderfoot Java client up to 10 days to manufacture can be expert by a fledgling RoR client inside of a day.

    The music industry is growing every day. The main reason behind this is the availability of the same on several digital channels. Those days are gone when people use to buy CDs or DVDs for enjoying music, now audiences prefer to download their loved music online. Recognizing the growth opportunities in this filed many companies have been set up that deals exclusively on Digital Music Distribution.

    Now, let take a look on the most crucial aspect of this whole distribution process that is revenue. Starting from collection keeping records, cutting share and then distributing to the end artist or label, the revenue cycle is highly extensive and complicated. If done manually there are high chances for mistakes and also it consumes amble amount of time and human resource. Hence, in order to get rid of this intricate process most of the digital music distributing companies have started giving over this task to other companies.

    This way distribution companies lower down their burden as well as their profit level, which they share with royalty processing companies. From profit point of view for both distribution companies and artists it is more beneficial to have their own distribution as well as royalty processing set up. It may sound quite extensive as well as expensive, but the fact is it’s not.

    The rise of the internet in the past few decades has dramatically changed the music industry on many levels, including how music is produced and distributed, how artists are discovered and promoted, as well as what exactly generates a profit. It has been predicted that the revenue will increase from 11.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2015 to 15.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2020.

    As an artist if you are paying 15% of your music revenue to distribution companies for your music distribution and royalties processing, then it will be more profitable for you in the long term to have your own software. Cryptex Technologies has developed robust scalable software solutions for Digital Distribution and royalty processing for your own music distribution.

    Ruby on Rails is known for its capacity to assemble Web applications rapidly and easily. For first-time clients of Java, it could take around five to ten days to fabricate a reasonably valuable Web application that will speak with a database utilizing acknowledged Java Web best-practices, for example, isolating business rationale, from showcase rationale (ordinarily alluded to as Model-View-Controller). With no earlier preparing on Ruby on Rails, it takes around one day to perform the same objective utilizing the Ruby programming dialect. In a few more days, it is conceivable to manufacture a generally finish Web application with Ruby on Rails.

    Another element of Ruby on Rails Development in India that improves engineer efficiency is the quick input circle. The input circle is the measure of time between rolling out an improvement in code and seeing the outcomes in the execution of your application on the screen. In Rails, you get almost moment criticism as you code. There is no arrange or bundling stage required. You can instantly stack a program page to see the consequences of your progressions.

    Supervisors ought to observe this component, on the grounds that with upgraded efficiency comes enhanced customer fulfillment. Let's assume you are in a meeting with a customer, and they have a few alters that they might want for you to consolidate into their Web application. With Ruby on Rails, you can roll out improvements expeditiously and see the outcomes promptly, enhancing the general customer experience.

    It is vital to note that presenting a profoundly diverse structure, for example, Ruby on Rails can be impeding to an organization's advancement, trying, and generation base. For instance, Rails applications are introduced uniquely in contrast to basic improvement stages, for example, Java or Microsoft's .NET. Operations administrators need to see how to send it adequately.

    Flux is an architecture that complements React and the concept of Unidirectional Data Flow. It is not a framework or a library. It is simply an architecture. Flux is an architecture that Facebook uses internally when working with React.

    Flux applications have three major parts:

    Dispatcher: Receives actions and broadcasts payloads to registered callbacks. The Dispatcher is basically the manager of this entire process. The dispatcher receives actions and dispatches the actions and data to registered callbacks. The dispatcher broadcasts the payload to ALL of its registered callbacks. There is only ever one dispatcher, and it acts as the central hub within your application.

    Stores: Containers for application state & logic that have callbacks registered to the dispatcher. Stores contain the application state and logic. Stores manage application state for a particular domain within your application. Stores manage the data, data retrieval methods and dispatcher callbacks. A store exhibits characteristics of both a collection of models and a singleton model.

    Views: React Components that grab the state from Stores and pass it down via props to child components. Controller views are really just React components that listen to change events and retrieve Application state from Stores. They then pass that data down to their child components via props. The controller-views call their own render() method via setState() or forceUpdate(), updating themselves and all of their children.

    MVC Application:

    As an MVC application grows and controllers, models, and views are added, the dependencies become more complex.

    Cryptex Technologies uses Flux architecture to design best web and mobile application for clients.

    React is not a framework; it is mainly a concept, libraries and principles that turn it into a fast, compact and beautiful way to program your app on the client and server side as well, which is developed and used by Facebook.

    Why is it a game changer?

    Like every programming concept, React has it’s own solutions, tools and libraries turning it into an ecosystem. In this ecosystem, you have to pick your own tools and build your own framework.You already know most of these tools, we will just connect them to each other. For example for dependencies we won't use any magic, rather Node's require and npm. It also provides different ways to organize your templates and gets you think in components known as Component-driven development. In a React application, you should break down your site, page or feature into smaller pieces of components. It means that your site will be built by the combination of different components. You can also reuse it somewhere else later. Think of it like the bricks of Lego.


    • Lightweight DOM For Better Performance.
    • Easy Learning Curve.
    • Isolation of the view layer and the encapsulation of responsibilities. Using React you can expect safe and easily understood data flow.
    • A desired interface can be created in a relatively easy manner.
    • Components Support And Little Dependencies.
    • We want to stay DRY and reuse a code base that we find stable and reliable.

    In most of our Rails applications, we need technology that provides an easy way of developing rich encapsulated parts, scattered through different routes. In our opinion, React shines for this kind of job.

    Virtual DOM

    To track down model changes and apply them on the DOM, we have to be aware of two important things: when data has changed and which DOM element(s) to be updated supporting element creation, diff computation and patch operations for efficient re-rendering.

    How to render on the server too?

    React is also smart enough to recognize that the markup is already there (from the server) and will add only the event handlers on the client side.

    JSX JSX is a JavaScript syntax extension that looks similar to XML. Recommended using JSX because it is a concise and familiar syntax for defining tree structures with attributes. XML has the benefit of balanced opening and closing tags. This helps make large trees easier to read than function calls or object literals.

    How to test React app:

    1. Test React apps with Jest which is a test framework by Facebook and has many great features. 2. Pass the properties to our component, trigger the possible events and check the rendered output.

    Cryptex Technologies make the best possible use of react technology for making better functionality app.

    Planning of any web application before starting with its design or coding process is essential for successful launch of the app in the market. In fact, planning is an essential step, which one can never overlook, whether you are designing a complete new app or re-purposing the already existing one.

    Planning in Web Development and its Significance

    Planning in terms of web development or application development refers to any general-purpose workflow, which companies designed mainly to help designers in getting started with the actual job. Project planning implies a collaborative effort between developers and start-up companies. This phase delves deep into any of the proposed applications and confirms about achievement of possible outcomes, keeps awareness of limitations and allows people to come up with right directions.

    With respect to the app development, it is important to develop applications that are efficient, effective. It is vital to ensure on the part of the development firms to develop quality applications on time. In business, this counts.

    It attracts the investor’s moods, interests and they exhibit their fascination to work with the app developer firm. It is therefore crucial to make planning beforehand so that projects can be delivered in a timely manner.

    Agile Development

    Especially, to cope up with the intense competition in the apps development market, one should look for Agile Development. This is an alternative to traditional development method used mainly in application and web development.

    It allows professionals to access the right direction of any project during its entire developmental lifecycle. Reputed companies and its professionals achieve it with the help of cadences of their work referred mainly as sprints or iterations, at the completion of which teams should present a potentially transferable increment of a product.

    Cryptex Technologies has always given concern towards planning process and on Agile Development to accomplish app development process. Therefore, with proper planning, the company not only get success to launch apps within regular time, but also create huge demand even in the intensely competitive app development industry.

    The Rails is a web application framework that includes the things required to create web applications along with databases according to the MVC pattern. A thorough understanding of the MVC is vital to comprehend the concepts of Rails. The application under MVC is divided under three layers and each has a specific responsibility. There are contents posted online that allow an individual to understand all about the model layer, controller layer and the view layer.

    The Rail 5 is an updated version of the application framework. It has some improvements that make it amazing. Among the new features that are included in the Rail 5 are the Action Cable, improved turbo links and all this improving the web-development workflow.

    Merging Rails Application Programming Interface

    In the earlier version of the Rails, there were too much security vulnerabilities. There were also other things that made the previous versions of the web application framework not all users friendly. Overcoming them is a challenge. But with the use of Rails 5, building API for JavaScript applications is very much simplified.

    In the Rails 5, the rails-api gem is supposed to be merged into the core and that will allow the use of the software as a simple JSON application-programming interface.

    The software is available on the Internet. In addition, all the user needs to do is to install the rails from the command prompt. Later, the user can create a new rails application. Start the web server and then using the browser and browse the Rails on the local host server. Ruby on rails is popular software used by IT professionals.

    Ruby on Rails Developers in india of Cryptex follows Rail 5 in apps development, because of which their designed apps are of free from flaws and give exclusive user experience to a huge extent.

    The cost involved in the app development can be drastically reduced if appropriate tools are used for the development process. Switching to cross-platform mobile app development tools, such as PhoneGap helps in development pocket friendly apps. PhoneGap is cool app development tool, that is not only budget-friendly but also helps in placing the application in different platforms – left, right and center. The code for the app is written just once and then you can run it anywhere and everywhere.

    If you are thinking of creating a pocket friendly application that too in a hybrid format then PhoneGap will be the only thing that will hinge around your thoughts. It is one of best technological tools that have been around for quite some time and there are many companies, Cryptex Technologies who are already making use of this effective tool.

    Enhance User Experience

    Earlier, the applications developed using PhoneGap faced many issues related to slow frame loading. However, now after the Sencha Touch users can smoothly navigate anywhere without facing any sort of downloading related issues. It is not wrong to say that after the fusion with Sencha PhoneGap has become even more advance.

    Speedy Development

    PhoneGap is now powered by Sencha Touch with 2.4 speeds. Hence, the app development and deployment process has enhanced greatly.

    Support and Resources

    With the drastic increase in the demand of PhoneGap the availability, the support and resources for the development of mobile apps on the PhoneGap platform has also increased.

    Zero Limitations

    Unlike any other app, users can easily include several native features and new technologies in the app. Cryptex Technologies make the best possible use of PhoneGap for creating functionally sound and cost effective mobile apps.

    People who are new to Ruby on Rails must know that, one of the most daunting aspects is about knowing what the preferred way of accomplishing a given task is. In the due course of time many techniques and libraries have come but none of them had any substantial impact on the development process. However, there are some best practices that have been there for checking ROR code quality.

    Listed below are some of the best rails best practices:

    Fat Model, Skinny Controller:

    One of the most appropriate and effective way of writing concise codes in Ruby on Rails is by following the well-known ‘Fat Model, Skinny Controller’ model. The model actually refers to the two major components M and C of MVC. The Skinny controller actually acts as a complementary interface between the view and the model.

    Package Code into Gems and Plugins:

    People who have used Ruby on Rails a decent amount must have notice or realized the worth of Ruby gems in the development process. Rub gem helps in writing good quality codes that will have optimistic impact on the developed website or application. Another very important aspect is that every time you write a code, it pays you off the next time when you try to develop application with similar functionality. Further, it also stops you and save your time in evaluating your approach to the problem.

    Virtual Attributes

    If you get this feeling that you are actually manipulating data before inducing it to a model, then this means that it is a high time you should start with the structuring of your codes, so that you can take advantage of virtual attributes.

    Cryptex Technologies makes significant use of Rails best practices for ensure their code quality is of premium level.

    Core team involved in development of Rails has always known for major releases, which it releases on a period of two years. This time, Rails developers have come up with the latest version as Rails 5. To some extent, one can consider the new launch as point release in 4.x line based on upgrades or features. However, the fact is that latest Rail framework has dropped its support for MRI and thereby, becomes a latest change of the software development industry.

    Some Features of Rails5 Version

    Until now, features of latest rails version, which make top preference among modern web developers are mentioned here.

    Rails 5 is able to perform its functions only on Ruby 2.2.1 and its higher versions Allows for merger of Rails Application Program Index into Rails The latest version of Rails framework is able to point towards the rack master.


    Latest framework of Rail is different from any other alternative available in the industry because rather than simply replacing the element on any page tailoring of the response from the server side, Rails 5 replaces by default the entire body and allow users to specify about elements to be replaced according to opt-in basis.

    Action Cable

    Latest version of Rails developed by experienced developers is that it is able to integrate WebSockets in seamless manner with remaining part of the Rails application.

    Running of Single and Multiple Files

    Lastly, latest Rails framework helps web developers to operate a single test by simply appending a particular line number towards the filename, while it runs more than one file and directory simultaneously. Cryptex Technologies hold expertise in using rails 5 in the most explicit manner.

    Automated testing and manual testing are the two major categories of testing that covers vast areas of quality testing. Both the types have specific methods available, such as integration testing, load testing, black box testing, white box testing, performance testing and so on. Some of these methods work flawlessly with manual testing and some with automated testing. Let’s take a look on the both positive as well as negative aspects of both the forms of testing that will help to decide which type of testing one should opt for:

    Manual testing is not the most reliable one because there are also possibilities for human error. On the contrary, automated testing is considered more reliable because it is done by tools and scripts.

    Manual testing is executed by human resources, hence, it’s a time consuming process. Automated testing on the other hand are quick because they done by software.

    In manual testing investment needs to be done on the human resource and for automated testing investment need to be made on purchase of software tool. In simple words we can say that manual testing is more cost effective compared to automated testing.

    Manual testing is highly flexible when testing different scenarios. Whereas, automated testing take more time to set up, which doesn’t allow you to test ideas quickly and easily.

    Manual testing is the best option when test cases are run either once or twice. It does go well with the situation that calls for running the test cases frequently and repeatedly. In the contrary, automated testing is the best suited option when the test cases are run repeatedly over a long time period.

    Both the forms of testing are useful for testing different scenarios. Cryptex Technologies follow manual as well as automated testing wherever required. They know to maintain a perfect equilibrium between the two.

    Digital currencies like bitcoins are more and more being used for business purposes. But unlike the usual currencies there are certain disadvantages associated with the digital currencies and that makes them very difficult for the bitcoin payment gateway developers as there are many parameters involved its creation.

    Firstly, let’s understand the factors that make the job of bitcoin payment gateway developer a bit difficult.

    The digital currency in context is not under any centralized control. So developers require incorporating the feature while developing the payment gateway.

    This type of currency cannot be traced because it has a different way of storing. There is a bitcoin wallets meant for storing this type of currency.

    Moreover, the currency is not under any governmental control and because of which it can be used for legal as well as illegal purposes.

    There are many unknown bitcoin users and tracking them is difficult. So while integrating bitcoin payment gateway, profiling unknown bitcoin users is very important.

    The payment processor needs to incorporate all these features. Moreover, when users make any transactions using the bitcoin payment gateway then the security, confidentiality aspects need to be encompassed. Another fascinating thing about bit-coins is that the transactions are not encrypted. In an e-commerce website, the developers can incorporate features to provide encryption during a transaction.

    More and more, people are using bitcoins during transactions. As a cause, the demand for e-commerce websites with bitcoin payment gateway integrated into it is increasing. Cryptex is the solution source that helps majority of their clients in integration of secure Bitcoin payment gateway.

    If you are a business owner then you need to take care of production, sales and maintenance simultaneously for effective results. In this context, note that mere production won’t fetch you profits and so it is important that you focus on sales. If you do so then you can increase your revenues. There are many analytical tools in sales that aid you in boosting your revenues. In this context, the trend analytics is an important one.

    Let’s discuss how sales trend analytics help you in Digital Music Distribution Industry:

    1. The sales trend analytics displays the analysis of how the sales have taken place for artists and labels.

    2. It also provides the business owner with the information with data like geographical area, time of sales, and age group.

    3. By doing an analysis using the tool helps both artists as well as labels in deciding the appropriate marketing strategy.

    4. The tool is said to predict the trends for future production. This means that by strategically analyzing sales trends artists and labels can plan their future album and song distribution on different DSPs.

    5. Such analytic software helps the digital music industry to increase revenue in the business, improve strategies of marketing and sales with the objective of making profits. It helps the digital music industry see the trends that require to be produced in the future.

    Overall, it can be said, the software is ideally suited for sales and marketing. In a business, once the production is completed, the tool can be used to boost the sales, make profits, and then do market research based on which further production can be initiated. An individual requires a basic training on the use of the software.

    Agile is one of the highly accepted methodologies for software development. It is very apparent that the demand for Agile methodology has increased drastically. Effective use of Agile in software development has acted as a revolution in the field of software industry, the reason behind this is that the quality gets enhanced and also the implementation cost gets reduced. Organizations that are new to Agile will reap significant benefits from involving resources who have experience that has been cultivated through a first-hand understanding of drivers of success and sources of pitfalls. Let’s take a look on some of the benefits of using Agile in Software development:


    The iterative nature of agile development means features are delivered incrementally, enabling some benefits to be realized early as the product continues to develop.


    Agile development principles encourage active ‘user’ involvement throughout the product’s development and a very cooperative collaborative approach. This provides excellent visibility for key stakeholders, both of the project’s progress and of the product itself, which in turn helps to ensure that expectations are effectively managed.

    Risk Management

    Small incremental releases made visible to the product owner and product team through its development help to identify any issues early and make it easier to respond to change. The clear visibility in agile development helps to ensure that any necessary decisions can be taken at the earliest possible opportunity, while there’s still time to make a material difference to the outcome.

    Cost Control

    The above approach of fixed timescales and evolving requirements enables a fixed budget. The scope of the product and its features are variable, rather than the cost.

    Cryptex Technologies holds expertise in using Agile for web or mobile app development. They never compromise with the quality hence; religiously follow all the aspects of Agile methodology.
