Zombie Record

Allows restoring your Active Records from the dead!

Build Status

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'zombie_record'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install zombie_record

Usage

Simply include the ZombieRecord::Restorable in your model class:

class Book < ActiveRecord::Base
  include ZombieRecord::Restorable
end

Zombie Record assumes the model's table has a deleted_at column with the timestamp type.

You can now delete and restore Book records:

book = Book.find(42)
book.destroy

Book.find(42) # raises ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound.

book = Book.deleted.find(42)
book.restore!

Book.find(42) # returns the Book record.

Compatibility

Zombie Record only works with Active Record >= 4. For Active Record 3 compatibility, check out the activerecord-3 branch of this gem.
