Rails Day 2006 Entry: Heartbeat

Not only were we a Rails Day 2006 Sponsor, but we also competed.

Our entry is called Heartbeat. It’s a simple, elegant, web-based tool for monitoring and maintaining Rails-based applications. From the Heartbeat home page:

Monitor the uptime of URLs and run your application’s rake tasks. Manage your Rails applications from a web interface! Heartbeat can be extended however you want – if you can write a rake task, Heartbeat can execute it!

We’re not done with Heartbeat just yet. This is only the first 24 hours of development.
