What Column?!?

A Rails plugin that details columns in ActiveRecord models.

Tired of having to look at schema.rb to figure out what columns belong to a model?
Well no more!

With the what_column plugin a comment appears at the top of your models displaying the column details.

INSTALLATION

Go into your Rails folder and type:

script/plugin install git://github.com/thechrisoshow/what_column.git

USAGE

Everytime you run migrations in development mode your models will be updated with a comment block detailing comment information:

class User < ActiveRecord::Base

  # === List of columns ===
  #   id         : integer 
  #   name       : string 
  #   created_at : datetime 
  #   updated_at : datetime 
  # =======================

end

It only works for those models under app/models. And as it writes directly to your model files make sure that you use source control!

Should you wish to run the commands manually there are rake commands. Check 'em out:

rake what_column:add #=> Adds column details to models

rake what_column:remove #=> Removes column details from models
