Turbo boost your Rails APIs with some ar_lightning!
We all know Ruby isn't the fastest language and we know Rails does ALOT of magic. Sometimes this magic (awesome though it is) deceives us into thinking Ruby is slower then it is and wei simply can't have speed!
If your API is simply returning data this gem could be for you.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install ar_lightning
Simply send the method 'lightning' to your AR class/query and get back plain old hash objects. This skips initializing AR objects in the name of speed which saves ALOT of time with large datasets.
This idea was stolen from this post: http://brainspec.com/blog/2012/09/28/lightning-json-in-rails/ by Sergey Nartimov
