Development speed boosters


#1

anyone know of any good development speed booster plugins or gems? the
larger my app becomes, the slower development time becomes… getting
painfully slow…

Where in the development cycle do you seem to go the slowest? Creating
tests? Writing code against your tests? Unit testing? Testing
controllers?
Hitting the database? Where do you experience a bottleneck, or necks?

You can always use mod_rails in development mode on Apache:

http://www.modrails.com/

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName myapp
DocumentRoot /rails/myapp/public
RailsEnv development
<Directory “/rails/myapp/public”>
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Minus the ability to run an inline debugger, it works the same as
mongrel or webrick, except multi-threaded and faster.

Roger,

I’m not sure if this is still being maintained with the latest version
of Ruby on Rails, but it’s worth looking into.

I found it on Github as well:

Good luck!

Cheers,

I think there is some ambiguity in your question. Are you talking about
the
speed of the application in development mode (as opposed to production)
or
the speed of development of the application by the developers?
