How do you run custom script with rails?

I am writing some app which involves execution of external bin/ script.
How
do i run it with RoR apps ?
Currently, i thought of using
custom_script agr1 arg2
in my controller/model . Is it good ? Or you handle it in some other
way ?

Depends on awful lot on the script itself. It’s not necessarily a bad
idea, but…

For instance, how long will the script take to run? Is it OK to tie up a
worker process waiting on it? Does the user expect to see the
result/confirmation of the script’s action right away? Does the user
only need to see the final result, or do they need updates/info on its
progress?

Depending on the particulars, it might be better to push the request
on a queue, and have another process executing those requests in the
background. There are utilities for this…

Thanks scott . I will keep this thing in mind .may be i will use
deplayedjob or something like that . My motive is to start some script ,
it will take hour to finish. In this meantime, a user can also start
same process again with different entity or cancel/resume ongoing
processes .

If it takes an hour to run you could very easily run out of delayed
job processes. In addition to using something like childprocess to
control your child processes, you might want to try if you could write
a single master process that could use select to multiplex io from all
of the child processes.

command,something more exclusive ?
