Re: Things You Shouldn't Be Doing in Rails
I don't understand what's so bad about the Rails pagination. It's designed such that it doesn't load all the rows that match the specified conditions - it only loads as many as can be viewed on the page. It uses a separate count() query to identify the total number of records.
What's so slow/unstable/weak about this? I've been using it on a number of sites and I'm curious whether I should be switching to something else.
