I’ve released the VolatileDB gem. It’s a gem meant to store simple data
on transient file systems; e.g. the one you might find on Heroku.
You can use VolatileDB to store some data and read it continually from a
file. If the file should happen to go away on the underlying storage, it
will be re-initialized.
Anywho, just wanted to say “hello world” with it all in case someone
checks it out and finds it useful. Right now I’m using it on my blog to
find my latest tweet and cache it. There’s a million different ways to
accomplish that, of course, but this is all just for fun.
