Is it time to replace Rake?
Do you have really heavy Rakefiles?I do. My day job includes working in a Ruby-based repository with a lot of test, build, and release tooling, living in an enormous Rakefile. Actually, an enormous main Rakefile, plus lots of additional Rakefiles in dozens of subdirectories. Combined, it’s well over seven thousand lines of Rakefile—and that’s actually quite a bit smaller than it has been in the past.Rakefiles are the ugly junk closets of our Ruby projects. Our app might have nicely factored classes, short methods, and excellent test coverage for our application code, but that seldom extends to our Rakefiles. Is your Rakefile covered by your code health tools? Do you have tests for your Rake tasks? Didn’t think so.
