Wow, there’s really been a resurgence of DRb use lately. Which is great. It’s one of our most venerated protocols.
- Ezra’s BackgrounDRb plugin for Rails. For passing progress between Rails apps and running processes. Two videos: A progress bar and tailing logs.
- Robby and Ben’s svnwatch rbot plugin. Uses DRb on the post-commit hook!
- And, lastly, this series of scripts uses the protocol to convert Word documents on a remote machine.
