Setup your terminal to not scroll when there is new output

When you are scrolling up to investigate a test failure it is super annoying when the terminal scrolls back down whenever the running test outputs another line. Luckily you can disable this behavior:

  • Gnome terminal: Edit -> Profile preferences -> Scrolling", uncheck *Scroll on output
  • Terminator: Right click on terminal screen, Preferences -> Profile -> (for each profile) -> Scrolling, uncheck Scroll on output

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