Output Logger and SQL to the Rails Console in Development Mode


If you want to take a look at the SQL being generated by active record while your using the console, you can either type this into the console when it loads

ActiveRecord::Base.logger = Logger.new(STDOUT)
Or you can add it to your environment so that it'll be the default behavior rails_root/config/environments/development.rb


ActiveRecord::Base.logger = Logger.new(STDOUT)

It's a nice way to keep you away of any expensive queries you may unknowingly be writing!
