rake -T

Filed under: Ruby — gavinstark @ 8:44 am

Giles Bowkett recently posted an alias for rake. It runs rake -T and sends the output through grep. I’ve been doing this for a while even though rake -T takes a parameter. The reason being:

There is a subtle difference between rake -T xxxx and rake -T | grep xxxx

The former only search the NAME of the rake task while the latter searches all the text, including the textual description (the text is fixed to 80 characters regardless of my terminal width) Perhaps I will submit a patch for rake.

$ rake -T | grep -i recreate
rake db:mysql:recreate # Rebuild t…
rake db:test:clone # Recreate
rake db:test:clone_structure # Recreate

$ rake -T recreate
rake db:mysql:recreate # Rebuild the MySQL test databases
