When running capybara feature specs I can see lots of Slow factory notices which are populated byfactory_girl. These Slow factory things heavy slow down the feature specs, I think, even feature specs are intrinsic slow specs. Then I had some inspect and found out most of the Slow factory was caused bypaperclip. We had model using paperclip here:

FactoryGirl.define do 
  factory :asset do 
    image Rails.root.join('spec/fixtures/sample.jpg').open 

So I wonder if there's a way like test mode for paperclip to speed up tests. I have simple solution here: Just copy the original file instead of actually crop it.

What is the best method to manage image uploads in Rails? Is there a tool that allows auto-resizing upon image upload based on predefined dimensions? Moreover, is there any tool available that makes it possible to render / regenerate the same originally uploaded image using alternative view based styles, e.g. thumbs, 320x200 or 640x480 etc..?

Users of my system will be uploading an excel spreadsheet. The issue is should I just read straight from this excel spreadsheet into my front-end or should I load this spreadsheet into my MySQL database and then to my front-end.

I have asked numerous people about this issue and have researched on-line to no avail.
