I would like to speed up my tests and I've noticed that not all
caching is switched on in test.rb, and can't think why not.
I've thought to do this:
config.cache_classes = true
config.action_controller.perform_caching = true
config.action_view.cache_template_loading = true
Try it and find out. Think about what might go wrong: do you have
tests expecting some behavior that caching might interfere with?
Also, I have some pretty big test suites, but they run in 1- 2 minutes
at most. How long are yours taking? Is it perhaps inefficient code?
Thanks for the reply. It is that I can't think what would break. At
the same time the project was configured by default with caching off,
and yet a production site needs to have been tested with cacheing on.
Therefore I would suppose there was a pretty good reason for that
caching to be off that the rails devs know of, and I don't.
