James Ridgway - Software Engineer


Hi there. I'm James Ridgway — Software Engineer. I currently work as Head of Platform 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:


A MongoDB docker container optimised to provide a high performance MongoDB instance for 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.

Gradle Git Flow Plugin

A gradle plugin for inferring the version from the state of the git repository where a Git Flow workflow is being used.


A utility for binary searching a sorted file for lines that start with the search key.


A pass extension for checking passwords against pwnedpasswords API or a password hash file.
