A list of gems I like to use in my Ruby on Rails projects

I will just keep here a list of gems I like to use in my Ruby on Rails projects.

There are so many good gems out there I usually forget some of them when starting a project. These are only here as a reminder for myself. All the configuration needs to be done and versions need adjustment if necessary. I won’t use all of them in all project but more picking the one I need from this list. So here it is with quick commenet explaining each of them:
