I had quite a time building a family tree app. It’s still not quite perfect, but it works pretty well. I couldn’t find much online that addressed this, so hopefully this blog post will help other people.
it was interesting for me to compare the sinatra app I just completed with the cli gem I built a few weeks ago. What I found most exciting was the data aspect - for my web scraping gem, there was no new data being generated on my end - I was just taking information that already existed and manipulating it.
