Spring gem blows ass
Spring claims they are…
Spring is a Rails application preloader. It speeds up development by keeping your application running in the background so you don't need to boot it every time you run a test, rake task or migration.
I could not disagree more. Spring sucks ass and I never use it on any of my applications because it makes working with ENV variables difficult and I just started up a new rails app, and spring wouldn’t boot so I couldn’t use any of the rails generators. What a shitty gem.
