Just a quick little post in case some people out there don’t know about the note keeping feature in Rails.

There’s a rake task called “notes” that will search your codebase for any TODO, FIXME or OPTIMIZE annotations and print them in a pretty list, like so.

$ rake notes
app/controllers/submissions_controller.rb:
* [ 38] [TODO] Write destroy action

app/models/submission.rb:
* [ 5] [TODO] Integrate with Amazon S3
