The Best Ruby on Rails Page Caching Tutorial Yet

By Peter Cooper / March 1, 2007

Just ten days ago Gregg Pollack and Jason Seifer launched their new Rails blog, Rails Envy, with a great acts_as_ferret tutorial. I told them to keep up the good work, and they have! Today they've posted an amazing Ruby on Rails page caching tutorial that covers page caching to a good depth including configuration, sweepers, cache location, and Apache/Lighttpd integration. Sadly it doesn't touch on fragment and action caching, but Gregg assures us all that a post about these tools is forthcoming.

    For another great resource on Rails caching (including action and fragment caching) you should check out the recent peepcode screen cast below. It's worth the $9 and if you haven't heard of them yet, keep an eye out for these screen casts.

    (I have no affiliation except as a happy customer who has purchased most of the back catalog)!

  2. Carl Youngblood says:

    Grammar absolutely sucks though. Correction: "Thou mayest be dugg or slashdotted, that thy server runneth hot. I shall pray it crash not, and hope thy web site cache [do cache]." The last sentence is in subjunctive form because praying and hoping refer to events that have not yet come to pass.
