In rails 2.3.5 world I get to see all the sql statements on my
console. Thanks to following line of code in my ~/.irbc
However above code does not do its magic in rails3 world.
In rails3 what do I need to do to see sql statements in my rails
All I know is that RAILS_ENV is now Rails.env and RAILS_DEFAULT_LOGGER
is now Rails.logger
Maybe this helps you to find the solution
Other than that I usually open a second Terminal window and do a
tail -f log/development.log
there I see the SQL statements which I evoked from the console.
Usually even color coded.
Here there is a tip:
In order to make it work for both Rails 2 and Rails 3, my ~/irbrc looks
ActiveRecord::Base.logger = Logger.new(STDOUT)
…not sure though if there is a better way to do that… bye.
(For Rails 3)
I have this in my development.rb environment file:
ActiveRecord::Base.logger = Logger.new(STDOUT) if defined?
