Your Rails sandbox console

Just found out about a great feature in Rails that seems to be around since Rails 2. Start a console with the --sandbox (or -s) parameter:

Copy
rails console --sandbox

All changes you make to the database will be rolled back on exit.

Note however, that changes beyond the database (deleting files, sending emails, etc) cannot be rolled back!

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
