    One of the key challenges in any applications is managing long-running tasks without affecting the user experience. PopaDex leverages the solid_queue gem to handle background processing efficiently.

    Once we are done with default gems, should we look into something we usually use? That's jwt because we need session tokens for our API. Next comes our one and only sidekiq. For a long period of time it was the best in town solution for background jobs. Now we could also consider solid_queue or good_job. In development and testing groups we need rspec-rails, factory_bot_rails and ffaker. Dealing with money? Start doing it properly from the beginning! Do not forget to install money-rails.

  • Ruby on Rails load testing habits

    Rails isn't super opinionated about database writes, its mostly left up to developers to discover that for relational DBs you do not want to be doing a bunch of small writes all at once.

    That said it specifically has tools to address this that started appearing a few years ago

    The way my team handles it is to stick Kafka in between whats generating the records (for us, a bunch of web scraping workers) and and a consumer that pulls off the Kafka queue and runs an insert when its internal buffer reaches around 50k rows.

    Rails is also looking to add some more direct background type work with but this is still very new - most larger Rails shops are going to be running a second system and a gem called Sidekiq that pulls jobs out of Redis.
