xn / concise_transfers_controller.rb
Created Jan 3, 2013
The book `Clean Ruby` talks about locus of attention then offers this controller at the end of Chapter 1. To me, my eyes just roll off the create method. There is simply too much going on there to get everything in one gestalt. Here's my refactor:
View concise_transfers_controller.rb
class ConciseTransfersController < ApplicationController
respond_to :html
def create
respond_with account do |format|
format.html { redirect_to account_transfers_path(account) }

ruby-1.9.3-p125 cumulative performance patch.

Patched ruby 1.9.3-p125 for 30% faster rails boot

What is?

This script installs a patched version of ruby 1.9.3-p125 with patches to make ruby-debug work again (#47) and boot-time performance improvements (#66 and #68), and runtime performance improvements (#83 and #84).

Huge thanks to funny-falcon for the performance patches.
