Global min_messages

When running Rails apps with Postgres in development mode, you might notice output like this when running tests:

NOTICE:  CREATE TABLE will create implicit sequence "users_id_seq" for serial column "users.id"
NOTICE:  CREATE TABLE / PRIMARY KEY will create implicit index "users_pkey" for table "users"

It’s noisier than you need for day-to-day development. To quiet the noise, you could change a setting in your config/database.yml file:

min_messages: warning

However, we can set this machine-wide instead of project-wide, similar to the global .gitignore file and set noswapfile vim setting.

psql -d rails_app_development
ALTER ROLE USER_NAME SET client_min_messages TO WARNING;

Change USER_NAME to be the user account for your machine.

Bueno.
