hash_syntax Jump to Story

If you want to convert your application between the old 1.8 hash syntax (using the hash rocket) and the new 1.9 hash syntax (using the colon) you may want to checkout the hash_syntax gem by Michael Edgar. Not only does it convert from 1.8 to 1.9, but it also converts back from 1.9 to 1.8 for all the haters.
