A ruby module to assist in capturing stdout/stderr from a detached thread in jRuby

  1. create some temp files (but not Tempfiles since they would be GC'd too quickly)
  2. append standard file descriptor redirects to the commands that we'll run in the detached spawned process, i.e. 1>>stdout_tempfile_path 2>>stderr_tempfile_path
  3. tack on a final command that will trigger copying the files to S3 regardless of exit status of original commands, i.e. {original commands with io redirection &&'d together}; bundle exec rake cleanup_task
  4. cleanup other io redirection temp files older than some threshold

Other than the default Panini pieces, you will also need to make sure that lodash is included as a devDependencies in your package.json
