  • Enhanced ActiveRecord preloading

    Thank you for sharing this with me! It seems that https://github.com/salsify/goldiloader gem does the same as https://github.com/DmitryTsepelev/ar_lazy_preload. It would be great to compare both solutions.
  • N+1 problem will never be an issue with N1Loader gem

    Sorry, seems my post wasn't clear at all. So https://github.com/salsify/goldiloader is great indeed! But it only preloads automatically for default ActiveRecord associations without the need of you to do it on your own.
  • Prosopite is trending on GitHub! Thank you!

    Prosopite looks cool, it's is similar to https://github.com/salsify/goldiloader, though goldiloader will also rewrite the query to address the N+1 issue. You should be able to use both and verify goldiloader is working by checking that prosopite logs no N+1 queries.
