Use what you know. Laravel would be the best choice here in my opinion. RoR & Laravel have very similar feature sets, community etc so going with RoR wouldn't be any greater benefit than Laravel.

I could see FB creating a "whitelistable" domain where you can only access @Work stuff so that enterprises would be happier to use FB@Work. Something like work.facebook.com

It's sad that the most on point response I have seen to one of these things was the response to the "Build a Death Star" petition. Everything else just seems like a media spin.

My guess would be (2 x the number of critical mechanisms) 1, primary sensor and 1 backup to make sure that one doesn't provide a false positive

-----


how is this better than github.com?

-----


I do like the idea of being able to tag repositories. This is something I wish GitHub would let me do.

-----


Agreed, but still. I don't understand what this app exactly do.

-----


It's not.

-----


I havent tried the grandparent's software, but if I was going to use a native app I would probably try github's first.

https://windows.github.com/ https://mac.github.com/

I have shown the windows version to a few people and they grokked git a lot better than if I tried via the standard toolkit.

-----


Github's app lets you push and pull and do some minor work on your repositories. the Octohub app lets you search projects and stalk people.

-----


Alrighty then, a much more social aspect. I stand corrected!

-----


Have you tried it?

-----


No. Because, first, I'm a gnu/linux user nowadays, and second, even if I was a Mac user I would need more than 4 PNGs to convince me to use a software I encounter for the first time.

edit: ...and, as the app for Github is not missing, the third reason for not using the app is that its web page is shamelessly lieing* .

* One may well see this as «lying», but I reject to spell like that.

-----


Seems like you lied too, given that you simply don't know if there are any ways in which it is better than the github app.

-----


It would be lieing if I told I used it and in respect to Github's own software, that being the website and/or the client application, I found it worse. But in my first comment, which is simply «It's not.», I cannot see any indications of such statement. And I back what I state with my actual comment. On the website there is no link to information about the application, no documentation, no videos, no blog posts, nothing. Instead, I, and the software's target audience, are users of the Github.com already, and we know how to use github.com already, there is a plethora of docs, wikis, blog posts, videos which help us on using it on the web. Plus, the software is a third-party client to a service that already offers an official client. Out of this situation, the most obvious inference is that sticking to the website and/or the official application is better that using the OP's linked one. No lieing here, just reasoning.

If there was any sort of documentation or anything, a link to source on github, an end-user support possibility better than a twitter account that follows popular tech-news websites and tech celebs, I might have thought that it is promising and worth a try. But as it stands, no, it doesn't make me «step into the shop».

-----


Nope. You made a statement you knew to be unsupported. Their lack of documentation doesn't change that at all. If you tried the app you would know that you are actually wrong.

OS X only...

This. Stripe is a business. They need to make money to stay alive. 0.5% is a whole lot better than 2.9% + $0.30. They are providing all of the infrastructure, auto conversion, and risk mitigation so it's not that high of a price.

-----


I'm glad to see them rolling out alternative payment options! Hopefully there will be an ACH beta soon!

-----


We do have ACH charges in beta! Email me: lachy@stripe.com and I can get you on board.

-----


Why? There is a real need to protect sensitive information from being released. Minors, Confidential Informants, video of the inside of someone's house... all things that shouldn't be released except under special circumstances.

-----


That's totally the only things this will ever be used for.

-----


It may just be a script that gets all the active org members who can edit github/github and copies their profile info.

-----


Over the past 20 years gun regulations have been eased and the number of weapons sold has skyrocketed. However in that time the violent crime has gone down.

-----


There are three times as many deaths by suicide from firearms than violent crimes. Those rates have remained fairly steady over the past 20 years.

Also, while there have been more guns sold, household ownership has been decreasing - it's largely individual collectors that drive up sales.

-----


The number of weapons sold has skyrocketed, but the percent of households owning guns has fallen by about a third, from 45% to 30% over the last twenty years. (The per capita firearm homicides seem to have fallen by about half.)

-----


Correlation != causation

-----


I'm not saying that. I'm saying that the common thought would be that more guns = more crime. But according to the latest FBI study thats not the case. The cause of the dropping crime is due to many factors, but it definitely has not gone up even though there is greater access to firearms.
