Preload Build Status

Allows you to split your ActiveRecord find calls and your eager loading decisions.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'preload'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install preload


Now in your controller you don't have to know which associations should be eager loaded because your views need them.

In your controller:

def index
  @posts = blog.posts.all(:order => 'created_at DESC')

in your view:

  <% @posts.preload(:comments) %>
  ... render posts and their comments ...


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Added some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
