Quicky if for easily timing chunks of code.

Getting Started

gem install quicky


Time anything

quicky = Quicky::Timer.new
quicky.time(:test1) do
  sleep 2

Call time over and over again and when ready for results:

# Print average duration for all :test1 timings
p quicky.results(:test1).duration
# Print total duration for all :test1 timings
p quicky.results(:test1).total_duration
# Print longest duration for all :test1 timings
p quicky.results(:test1).max_duration
# Print shortest duration for all :test1 timings
p quicky.results(:test1).min_duration

Time in a loop

Good for performance testing.

quicky = Quicky::Timer.new
# This will loop 10 times
quicky.loop(:test2, 10) do |i|
  puts 'sleeping'
  sleep 1

Or loop for X seconds:

# This will loop for 10 seconds
quicky.loop_for(:test3, 10) do |i|
  puts 'sleeping'
  sleep 0.5

Looping Options

  • warmup: X -- will throw out the first X results.


You can get all the results with:

results =  quicky.results

Or a single result:

result = quicky.results(:test1)

Or turn it into a straight up hash:

hash = quicky.results.to_hash

And even marshal a hash back into a quicky objects:

results = Quicky::ResultsHash.from_hash(hash)

Or merge several results hashes together (if you were doing some tests in parallel):
