Hi there,

Facade design pattern?
Try to keep your rake files as simple as possible.
The best would be to extract all the logic to the separate lib file
and just call the logic from rake task.

task :daily_summary => :environment do
  #extract params
  day = ENV['DAY']

This way you can test your lib easily.
