Make null_store the default cache store in test environment config #33773



Copy link

@mcnelson mcnelson commented Sep 1, 2018


It's surprising to me that by default, low-level caching is functional in the test environment. This simply adds config.cache_store = :null_store in config/environments/test.rb.

The existing defaults in test.rb as well as the Rails Guides kinda have you believe the null_store is the default.

Really was on the fence about opening this as it may not be a substantial enough change to warrant dev resources. But since Rails has such a great reputation of providing sane defaults, I felt like this would be worth it.

Other Information

I perused the tests and wasn't sure where best to add anything. railties/test/application/generators_test.rb?

Appropriate to update CHANGELOG?

If any changes to this PR are deemed necessary, please add them as extra commits. This ensures that the reviewer can see what has changed since they last reviewed the code. Due to the way GitHub handles out-of-date commits, this should also make it reasonably obvious what issues have or haven't been addressed. Large or tricky changes may require several passes of review and changes.

This repository is being automatically checked for code quality issues using Code Climate. You can see results for this analysis in the PR status below. Newly introduced issues should be fixed before a Pull Request is considered ready to review.

Please see the contribution instructions for more information.

I’ve stubbed my toe on this before. 👍

Nothing changes for existing apps unless they opt into the new default via rails app:update, so I don’t think a changelog entry is necessary. Thanks!
