You wanna do that in your Rails app that runs with Mongrel? I show you how. Sit down. And along the way I’ll show what I learned about writing custom Mongrel HttpHandlers and why you shouldn’t store instance variable in them.
I remember seeing it there long ago when Google was new. I liked it because:
- Faster is better
- It shows Google focuses on helping me go fast
- It reminds the Google developers to focus on helping me go fast
So I’m developing this awesome web site now and I’m using Ruby on Rails with Mongrel. I wanted to pull a Google and show the server response time as text content in my pages, as a reminder to myself and my co-developer that it’s super-important to keep things fast.
I can haz question
How do you put response time in a page using Rails?
