comment Logging to rails console with rake
it's not going to show up there. If you use Rails.logger.info in your rake task and it is invoked in a separate process, you'll see it in the log file, which you can see with tail -f log/development.log.

By "rails logger" do you mean "log/development.log"? Or do you mean in the output from the rails s process?
