While I was digging through an old project of mine, I realized that I wrote one part of the system as a plugin. I’m no longer working on this project, so I decided I might as well release what I can to help others out. Thus, I bring you Fischy Friends!
This plugin is far from perfect, it never hit production quality, on the other hand during testing it was acting as intended.
The basic idea of the plugin is that it’s plumbing for a friends system. More unique than not, I took a different approach to what defined someone as a friend. Let’s say Bob is a fan of Josh. Josh now has one fan. Let’s say Josh saw some of Bob’s work and now decides he’s a fan of Bob; according to Fischy Friends, they’d officially be friends now.
The Fischy Friends Plugin will supposedly give you the above functionality. I say supposedly because it’s probably rough, it’s possible it’s broken as my logic can be skewed sometimes and I’m not the best programmer in the world. If you catch a bug or two, please fork the repository on Github and I’ll merge in your fixes for the general good.
Git It & Fork It

You’ll also see that the README on that page provides a RSpec spec on the basic idea.
Enjoy, and don’t be afraid to be a Fischy Friend!
p.s Don’t bite if the plugin sucks, I’m simply sharing some code that never and probably never should have made the bin.
p.s.s I’m late on the Twitter train, care to add me? http://www.twitter.com/dfischer
