Which ruby postgresql driver is recommended in rails?


#1

There are 3 ruby postgresql drivers, which is recommended for use in
rails?

  • postgres

  • ruby-postgres

  • postgres-pr (pure ruby, too slow?)

I checked these postgresql-related tickets in rails and there doesn’t
seem to be any concensus. It it seems ticket #4461 (applied in latest
edge) tries to make them work equally well–but it would be great if the
rails team recommended one.

I think at least informally, we agreed last week to use ‘postgres’
