Rails Logger appears to be duplicating log lines

I am experiencing something curious with the rails logger.

When I insert a Rails.logger.info("Some text") in the code, usually to trace flow, I am getting two lines of "Some text" output in the console.

This ordinarily isn't much of a problem, but when I dump the contents of larger objects, the output can get cumbersome to wade through.

This never seemed to happen before I upgraded to Rails 4, or at least, I don't recall it happening.

Does anyone know what is happening here, and if there is a way to stop duplicating log output?


Try moving the rails_12factor gem (if you've got it installed) to the production group.

group :production do
  gem 'rails_12factor'

This small workaround solved my issue. Follow these steps:

Under Rails External Libraries, Search for railties module. Go to this path: /lib/commands/server.rb

In this file comment this line, Rails.logger.extend(ActiveSupport::Logger.broadcast(console))

This command will switch off broadcasting, and just restart your rails server. You will not see any repeated logs anymore. Happy coding.

What is the difference between const int*, const int * const, and int const *?

c++ c pointers int const

I always mess up how to use const int*, const int * const, and int const * correctly. Is there a set of rules defining what you can and cannot do?
