Full transparency: Before I get into the specifics of the Konacha gem, I want to say that I'm a committer to the project. It wasn't my project, but I fell in love with it and wanted to help make it better. (I find it's always best to get that sort of thing out in the open before we move on.)
In this article, we'll focus on getting Konacha installed, configured, and running. Part 2 of this series goes into details about Mocha and Chai.
