James Ridgway


Hi there. I'm James Ridgway — Software Engineer. I currently work as Platform Team Lead at The Floow Limited. I'm your typical engineering nerd, so have a look at the projects I've been tinkering on and what I've been rambling on about in my blog.

I enjoy sharing my work, ideas, projects and experiments with others, so please leave comments, or feel free to contact me directly as I'd love to hear from you.


These are a few things that I have worked on recently:


Docker container for running a mongo instance on a tmpfs volume. Designed for use in test environments.


Executable gem for managing multiple git repositories in a top level directory. r-git allow you to easily fetch, pull, change branch, etc. across multiple git repositories with a single command.

Attachment Downloader

Simple tool for downloading email attachments for all emails in a given folder using an IMAP client.
