You need to assign UUIDs to your Model? UuidIt makes it as simple as adding one line of code to the according models.
script/plugin install git://github.com/aduffeck/uuid_it.git script/generate uuid_it rake db:migrate
Add the following line to your config/environment.rb file:
gem install uuid_it script/generate uuid_it rake db:migrate
rails plugin install git://github.com/aduffeck/uuid_it.git rails generate uuid_it rake db:migrate
Add the following line to your Gemfile:
bundle install rails generate uuid_it rake db:migrate
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.
