[ANN] LDAP to AR daemon - see your people records in your de

We have produced a daemon which serves up your ActiveRecord objects as
LDAP records. You can read all about it on the Thoughtbot blog:

And the svn repo is here:


Here is a quick rundown of the features:

  • Runs as a daemon, completely outside of your rails application.
  • Multithreaded for performance
  • Currently designed for read-only person objects, and returns values
    that Thunderbird and Addressbook.app can understand.
  • Will work out of the box for any AR subclass that implements the
    class.search and obj.to_ldap methods.
  • Designed to be production-ready (all variables stored in a config
    file, and all exceptions should be correctly caught).

Customizations and additions would be more than welcome.
