I’ve been exploring the options for running external scripts from the
The list I have is this:
ScriptRunner (in the script/ dir under rails projects)
The most likely candidate for me is the ScriptRunner because my external
script needs to know about a model which it has to save to the database
from my Rails environment, and it needs to start running as soon as I
tell it to. Unfortunately, running this external command many times in
a row is a bottleneck since each ScriptRunner instance has to load up
the entire rails env.
What I’m wondering is what is the easiest way to create a script which
knows only about the model I need to work with, and it’s database
location, so that my script doesn’t need to load the entire Rails env.
I’m thinking if I can load the activerecord gem with a slim config
setup, that might work, but I’m not sure how to use activerecord outside
the context of the Rail’s env.
Anyone else ever tackle this issue?
