FantasyIdentifiable

This gem allows you to create unique readable fantasy names as identifiers for your active record objects.

You can also define multiple identifier columns and alternatively use a UUID or friendly_token as identifier.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'fantasy_identifiable'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install fantasy_identifiable

Usage

Make sure your ActiveRecord Model has a string field that you want to use as an identifier.

Examples

Here you can see the db schema and model definitions for multiple usage examples.

DB Schema:

ActiveRecord::Schema.define do
  self.verbose = false

  create_table :fantasy_objects, force: true do |t|
    t.string :identifier
  end

  create_table :friendly_objects, force: true do |t|
    t.string :identifier
  end

  create_table :uuid_objects, force: true do |t|
    t.string :identifier
  end

  create_table :multi_objects, force: true do |t|
    t.string :identifier
    t.string :friendly_name
  end
end

ActiveRecord Models

class FantasyObject < ActiveRecord::Base
  include FantasyIdentifiable
  identifiable({ identifier: :fantasy })
end

class FriendlyObject < ActiveRecord::Base
  include FantasyIdentifiable
  identifiable({ identifier: :friendly })
end

class UuidObject < ActiveRecord::Base
  include FantasyIdentifiable
  identifiable({ identifier: :uuid })
end

class MultiObject < ActiveRecord::Base
  include FantasyIdentifiable
  identifiable({
    friendly_name: :friendly,
    identifier: :uuid
  })
end

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
