Ruby: The not so good parts

Ruby is definitely showing its age a bit with the standard library. With Ruby 3.0 the standard library is going to become default gems. That might encourage some modernization in the interfaces provided so that more apps can rely on an out-of-the-box solution, rather than bundling their own.Choice is a good thing. The fact that there are many alternatives to most parts of the standard library is a sign of a healthy ecosystem. But at the same time it would be nice if the libraries Ruby shipped with were good enough for simple scripts without having to pull in external libraries.For simple HTTP requests when you don’t care about anything other than the body you can always use open-uri.
