An app for the coming soon stage

While you’re busy developing a new application for a customer, it’s a good idea to have a pre-launch site running which gives a hint about the upcoming project and invites visitors to leave their email to be notified when it goes live.

Here’s a minimal Sinatra app for that:

It:

  • Has no style so that you can integrate your designer’s work
  • Collects emails in an SQL database
  • Has a protected admin page with CSV export

It’s called coming-soon, open source and singin' at http://github.com/renderedtext/coming-soon. Feel free to hack it, and let us know if you find it useful.

Closures are not magic

Several years ago, while I was still a high school student, a friend of mine introduced me the concept of closures. I didn’t understand even a bit of what he wanted to show me, but he looked really hyped when he talked about them. To me, it all looked like some kind of deep magic. Even Google didn’t help. All I could find were scientific papers, that were incomprehensible for a high school student.
