If you’ve ever searched for a specific gem functionality, you’ve likely sorted through reviews, forum posts, and articles detailing the specifics of each gem before settling on what to use. Before that, maybe you searched for “authorization gems” or “data visualization gems” to find out which ones you want to research further. You can skip that step by starting from the Awesome Ruby instead. This Ruby on Rails resource lists hundreds of Rails gems by functionality, in alphabetical order. It’s essentially a Rails gem directory, saving you a little time whenever you need to find a new gem to use.
