Boot rails in under a second

...kind of.

Zeus preloads your app to let you start rake tasks, servers, console, generators, and tests in about 300ms.

It reloads itself (faster than you'd think it should be able to) when any files change.


Screencast (it's even faster now): https://vimeo.com/burkelibbey/zeus

Try it, and let me know how it goes! (seriously, contact me at burke@libbey.me, @burkelibbey on twitter, or open a github issue on the project)

Really nice work!
With so manu process forks, it would be nice to have a command:
zeus shutdown #process clean up

Tried this out yesterday and today. So far working as advertised, very happy with that.

It works fine, except for one small detail: can't load our custom validators. This might be a bug in our code or in zeus'es code. Anyways, faster is always better and when it works, it works seamlessly.
