GemReloader

Stop restarting your server after editing local gems!

Usage

In your development.rb, add:

GemReloader.watch :my_gem

Or, if you want to watch all local gems:

GemReloader.watch_all!

That's literally it. Tiny but useful.

Important Note:

If your gems are in irregular directories (directories that aren't in your autoload_paths), you'll need to add those paths in your application.rb. GemReloader will automatically add vendor/gems to the autoload_paths for you.

By the way, a gem will be picked up by ::watch_all! if it has a :path attribute.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'gem_reloader'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install gem_reloader

Changelog

  • v0.0.2: Added "vendor/gems" to the config.autoload_paths so the user doesn't have to.
