Book review: CSS Secrets by Lea Verou

During holidays I finished book CSS Secrets by Lea Verou. I think its the best CSS book I have encountered. It presents 47 everyday design problems with well thought out alternative solutions using latest CSS features. First chapter gives short introduction on how CSS standards are formed and presents some best practices for writing CSS. That introduction chapter itself changed the way how I have been thinking the DRY principle regarding CSS.

Parsing MessagePack to Rails params

Update ActionDispatch::ParamsParser has been deprecated in Rails 5.0. Below solution works for Rails versions before 5.1 where ActionDispatch::ParamsParser got removed. Checkout this post for similar implementation in current Rails versions. Recently I had to develop Ruby on Rails app which would handle MessagePack formatted request bodies as well as JSON. By default Rails makes parsed JSON available at the params object, and I wanted MessagePack content to be handled just like that.
