UuidIt

You need to assign UUIDs to your Model? UuidIt makes it as simple as adding one line of code to the according models.

For actually generating the uuids this plugin uses spectra's ruby-uuid (http://github.com/spectra/ruby-uuid) which is based on ruby-uuid (http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/ruby-uuid/).

Installation

Rails 2.3.x

As a plugin

script/plugin install git://github.com/aduffeck/uuid_it.git
script/generate uuid_it
rake db:migrate

As a gem

Add the following line to your config/environment.rb file:

config.gem "uuid_it"

Then

gem install uuid_it
script/generate uuid_it
rake db:migrate

Rails 3

As a plugin

rails plugin install git://github.com/aduffeck/uuid_it.git
rails generate uuid_it
rake db:migrate

As a gem

Add the following line to your Gemfile:

gem "uuid_it"

Then

bundle install
rails generate uuid_it
rake db:migrate

Usage

class Car < ActiveRecord::Base
  uuid_it
end

@car.uuid # "9e5edacc-7163-11df-92bb-2d0a2c4dcb1c"

Car.find_by_uuid("9e5edacc-7163-11df-92bb-2d0a2c4dcb1c") # => @car

UUIDs will be assigned to new objects when they are created. Already existing objects will get a UUID when it is accessed for the first time.
