Spork is Tim Harper's implementation of test server (similar to the
script/spec_server that used to be provided by rspec-rails), except rather
than using the Rails constant unloading to reload your files, it forks a
copy of the server each time you run your tests. The result? Spork runs
more solid: it doesn't get corrupted over time, it can work with any
ruby framework, and it properly handles modules and any voodoo meta
programming you may have put in your app.
Spork runs on POSIX systems using fork. It also runs on windows by pre-populating a pool of ready processes (referred to here as the “magazine” strategy).
