Since last week I pushed a whole lot of new features to RefactorMyCode:
- Email notification when a new refactoring is posted
- Edit your refactoring
- More caching to make page loading über fast
- Make popular page sort by week first, so old stuff doesn’t stay on top
- Add an alternative OpenID in case your main one is down (set it in your account page)
One of the most popular code this week was posted by Frank Lamontagne from Ruby Fleebie and TimmyOnTime. He cross posted his last edition of the famous Rubyize this to RmC while using the trackback feature (allowing to send a trackback to your blog on each refactoring being made on the code). The idea of a Rubyize this is that he post a code that is poorly written on purpose and ask his readers to refactor it. Seeing the success of the 2 first editions was a trigger in my idea of building RmC. The results are always amazing in quality and diversity.
Here’s the code he posted:
Shorter, faster, better! No this is not a Kanye West song, it’s beautiful code!
