PostgresExt

You can help!

This gem could use some updating, and I've moved on from Ruby, but I'd like to see this gem continue to survive. If you're interested in helping maintain the gem, please reach out on twitter.

Overview

Adds missing native PostgreSQL data types to ActiveRecord and convenient querying extensions for ActiveRecord and Arel for Rails 4.x

Bug or question? Please open an issue on Github.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'postgres_ext'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install postgres_ext

Usage

Just require 'postgres_ext' and use ActiveRecord as you normally would! postgres_ext extends ActiveRecord's data type handling and query methods in both Arel and ActiveRecord.

Where are the datatypes from PostgresExt 1.x? ActiveRecord 4.x includes all the data types that PostgresExt added to ActiveRecord 3.2.x. We'll be adding more datatypes as we come across them.

Developing

To work on postgres_ext locally, follow these steps:

  1. Run bundle install, this will install (almost) all the development dependencies
  2. Run gem install byebug (not a declared dependency to not break CI)
  3. Run bundle exec rake db:setup, this will set up the .env file necessary to run the tests and set up the database
  4. Run bundle exec rake db:create, this will create the test database
  5. Run bundle exec rake db:migrate, this will set up the database tables required by the test
  6. Run BUNDLE_GEMFILE='gemfiles/Gemfile.activerecord-4.0.x' bundle install --quiet to create the Gemfile.lock for 4.0.
  7. Run BUNDLE_GEMFILE='gemfiles/Gemfile.activerecord-4.1.x' bundle install --quiet to create the Gemfile.lock for 4.1.
  8. Run bundle exec rake test:all to run tests against all supported versions of Active Record
