I love KirbyBase. I think it’s great that there’s a file-based
database engine written in Ruby. I like being able to edit the
database files directly and the fact that there’s a Memo datatype.
But, I did run into two problems while working with KirbyBase
a DateTime column originally set to kb_nil upon creation can’t
remain so when updated
a Memo column cannot be created when the memo_blob_path contains a
directory that doesn’t exist
These are bug ID’s 20290 and 20291, respectively, on Rubyforge.
There’s a fairly good description of what the problem exactly is, as
well as test cases attached to the bug reports. I’ve given myself a
month to try to fix the problems myself, but I just haven’t had the
time. Is there anyone with the time and inclination to have a look at
these problems? Jamey?
As payment, I can offer you a beer the next time you’re in Zurich,
