Here's a small sample of some of our open source projects.

Friendly Id

Check it out

FriendlyId is the most popular slugging and permalink plugin for Rails. It allows you to create user-friendly URLs to improve your website's usability, SEO and user experience.

Used in large production sites since 2008, it now has over 1500 followers on Github and has been featured on Ryan Bates's Railscasts. Some of the code in Ruby on Rails was taken directly from FriendlyId: paramaterize, tidy_bytes, and Rails i18n's transliteration API.

Merchant Sidekick

Check it out

Merchant Sidekick is an e-commerce plugin for Rails that provides the basic elements necessary to incorporate online payment and billing in your application. Rather than a kitchen-sink type library like Spree, Merchant Sidekick is a minimalist library that offers just the core low-level functionality necessary to accept payments online. This makes it more adaptable to our customers' widely varying needs, and gives us the ability to integrate new payment gateways in very short time.
