Yeah, like i would know a good description…

Problem starting Sidekiq in development

If you ever get this error:

can't link outside actor context

Followed by something like:

    /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/gems/celluloid-0.16.0/lib/celluloid.rb:176:in `new_link'
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/gems/sidekiq-3.3.4/lib/sidekiq/launcher.rb:21:in `initialize'
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/gems/sidekiq-3.3.4/lib/sidekiq/cli.rb:81:in `new'
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/gems/sidekiq-3.3.4/lib/sidekiq/cli.rb:81:in `run'
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/gems/sidekiq-3.3.4/bin/sidekiq:8:in `<top (required)>'
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/bin/sidekiq:23:in `load'
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0/bin/sidekiq:23:in `<main>'

It's mostly likely somehow related with either ZenTest or another testing framework. 

In my case, i was adding the ZenTest gem both in the development and test groups of my Gemfile. Moving it away from the development group solved the problem.
