make a pr from command line using hub

or even smarter:

hub pull-request -m "best pr ever" -b oozou:develop -h $(git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD)

for more detailed info how to make pull requests see at hub pull-request --help


Shallow clone a old repo

If you don't need the full git history for a repo you will be working on you can supply a clone depth to only clone x revisions of the repo.

git clone --depth=1


Use minItems/maxItems in collection JSON schemas

To make your collection JSON schemas more reilable use minItems and maxItems so that you can trust your API.

  "type": "array",
  "minItems": 1,
  "items": {
    "$ref": "subscription_notification.json"

instead of

  "type": "array",
  "items": {
    "$ref": "subscription_notification.json"

If your API returns [] empty array that last one would pass if you make an assertion in your specs.

expect(response).to match_response_schema(:subscription_notifications)

But not the first one

The property '#/' did not contain a minimum number of items 1 in schema
