Introduction to BackgrounDRb

InfoQ has just published an article on how to use BackgrounDRb. The author, Ezra Zygmuntowicz, explains how to install the plugin, gives an example use and suggests tasks that BackgrounDRb would be good for. One item of note that I was unaware of is that the plugin can be used for caching Active Record objects and views.

The article was very informative. I have plans to use this plugin soon and when I do, I’ll update here with some examples. You can download the plugin from Rubyforge or using script/plugin install like so …

script/plugin install svn://rubyforge.org//var/svn/backgroundrb
