Peter Boling

I maintain and author FLOSS Rubygems that are deserving of care and feeding

pboling's goal is to receive $25.00 per week.


I contribute to FLOSS projects in hopes that the future will be better than the present. I am a mender of legacy code.

I am currently focusing on:

  1. Moving toward a v2 release of the venerable oauth2 gem that supports authentication in a plurality of Ruby apps
  2. github.com/rubocop-semver
  3. Patching to update dependencies, and bring each rubygem into compliance with rubocop-packaging so they can be included in the Debian linux distribution
  4. Migrating to Github Actions for CI, fixing builds, and updating the spec suites to drop EOL'd Rubies, and include latest Rubies
  5. Improve documentation, and investigate some of the thornier issues that have been raised in issue trackers.

Ruby continues to be my favorite language after 17 years! I hope the day will never come when I stop contributing into the Ruby ecosystem!

I recently got into homebrew casks, and now I maintain a cask of old kops versions for Homebrew.

When you contribute to me, in sponsorship of my open source work, it helps me keep the gears turning on the many projects I support. Sponsorships are motivational, and truly appreciated!
