Having an old laptop, I often stuck waiting my rails server or console or rake -T to load. Some of these commands can take more than 10 seconds for me. That’s unacceptable really considering that all I want to do is to lookup the routes that I just made, or a simple data check with rails console.
Then I stumbled upon zeus. This gem can give an old laptop like mine super power to load aforementioned commands in a second (maybe two). Using it is easy:
First install with
gem install zeus.
Go to your rails application folder:
Then open another tab, and choose one of these commands:
- zeus console
- zeus server
- zeus test test/unit/widget_test.rb
- zeus test spec/widget_spec.rb
- zeus generate model omg
- zeus rake -T
- zeus runner omg.rb
It claims that any changes in config file even, can be seen by zeus. Scary power right? hehe. Alright then, that’s all for now.
