Luke Amdor / Banno


Writing Internal CLI Tools using Ruby and Thor

At Banno, we have built up an internal tool called banno-utility-belt or bub for short. This tool allows all developers and ops to have a singular go-to tool for many of our commonly done tasks. Using Thor and Ruby has allowed us to have a extendable and self-documenting command line interface.

In this presentation, you'll learn how to leverage Ruby and Thor to codify processes and practices for the betterment of your internal ecosystem.

Btw, according to Levi, the only venue dictated rule is: Don't set your ass, beer, or pizza on the pool table.
