Does it take you a while to get started in the morning?

It does for me. When I actually am ready to sit down and do some Rails hacking, I still have to fire up a couple irb consoles, open my editor, make sure Redis is running, start a resque worker, autotest, log tails, etc etc etc… I’d really rather get right to it, wouldn’t you?
$ rake day:begin
Ahhh, that’s much better!
namespace :day do task :begin => [:gvim, :console, :logs, :watchr, :server, :resque] task :console do puts "Opening IRB console..." `gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=railsconsole -x script/console` end task :logs do puts "Opening log files..." `gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=rails -t "Rails Logs" -x tail -f log/*` end task :watchr do puts "Starting test watchr..." `gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=rails -t "Test Watchr" -x rake watchr:test` end task :gvim do puts "Starting gvim..." sh 'gvim' end task :server do puts "Starting application server..." `gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=rails -t "Application Server" -x script/server` end task :resque do puts "Starting resque web... (http://localhost:5678)" `resque-web 2> /dev/null` puts "Starting resque worker..." `gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=rails -t "Resque Worker" -x rake day:quick_resque_worker` end task :quick_resque_worker do sh "QUEUE=* rake resque:work" end end namespace :watchr do task :test do sh "watchr test/test.watchr" end end
Into my Rakefile it goes! And if you like that, be sure to check out git-pivotal – grab the next thing to do and give it its own branch with just one more command. Anyone feeling clever enough to implement a rake day:end as well?
