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?

You can handle the view controller method willTransitionToTraitCollection:withTransitionCoordinator and check, the traits. The navigation bar is normally smaller size when in a compact height trait collection.

comment Downloading and parsing json in swift
You should not use NSData:contentsOfURL as it is a blocking call. Use the NSURLConnectionDelegate protocol as eXhausted shows above. Alternatively you can use the newer NSURLSession api to download data. Take a look at the docs for examples.
