Adds migration and schema.rb support to PostgreSQL enum data types.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install activerecord-postgres_enum
create_enum :mood, %w(happy great been_better) create_table :person do t.enum :person_mood, enum_name: :mood end
Running the above will create a table :person, with a column :person_mood of type :mood. This will also be saved on schema.rb so that
rake schema:load works as expected.
To drop an existing enum:
To rename an existing enum:
rename_enum :mood, :emotions
To add a value into existing enum:
add_enum_value :mood, "pensive"
To remove a value from existing enum:
⚠️Make sure that value is not used anywhere in the database.
remove_enum_value :mood, "pensive"
To add a new enum column to an existing table:
def change create_enum :product_type, %w[one-off subscription] add_column :products, :type, :product_type end
To rename a value:
rename_enum_value :mood, "pensive", "wistful"
NB: To stop Postgres complaining about adding enum values inside a transaction, use
disable_ddl_transaction! in your migration.
