Ruby coding guidelines?

Is there in the Ruby community anything like “ruby coding convention”?

Google returns two interesting links:

http://pub.cozmixng.org/~the-rwiki/rw-cgi.rb?cmd=view;name=RubyCodingConvention

Are they “authoritative” for some meaning of the word? :slight_smile:

Many thanks in advance,
Cheers.

There is no official/authoritative Style Sheet/Coding Conventions but
those two put together are what most of the community uses

I’d also point to the standard library (at least most of it :slight_smile: as a
good source of examples of traditional Ruby style.

That’s indeed what I usually do, but a visible document on the net would
be far more reassuring for newbies willing to following the community
best-practices :slight_smile:

There is also style guide on the RubyGarden wiki
(http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby) , but the wiki doesn’t seem to be
responding right now.
