RubyMoney - Money-Rails

Build Status


This library provides integration of money gem with Rails.

Use 'monetize' to specify which fields you want to be backed by Money objects and helpers provided by the money gem.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'money-rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install money-rails


For example, we create a Product model which has an integer price_cents column and we want to handle it by using a Money object instead:

class Product < ActiveRecord::Base

  monetize :price_cents


Now each Product object will also have an attribute called price which is a Money object and can be used for money comparisons, conversions etc.

In this case the name of the money attribute is created automagically by removing the _cents suffix of the column name.

If you are using another db column name or you prefer another name for the money attribute, then you can provide as argument with a string value to the monetize macro:

monetize :discount, :as => "discount_value"

Now the model objects will have a discount_value attribute which is a Money object, wrapping the value of discount column to a Money instance.

Field currencies

You can define a specific currency per monetized field:

monetize :discount, :as => "discount_value", :with_currency => :eur

Now discount_value will give you a Money object using EUR as currency.
