With this gem you can use UUID instead of id in routes. But id is still primary key.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install uuidable
uuidable in your ActiveRecord model:
class Project < ActiveRecord::Base uuidable # Rest of the code end
You can use special methods in migrations:
class CreateProjects < ActiveRecord::Migration def change create_table :projects do |t| t.uuid #... end # Or add_uuid_column :projects end end
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake spec to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
To install this gem onto your local machine, run
bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in
version.rb, and then run
bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the
.gem file to rubygems.org.
